Seun Kuti, "The Good Leaf" (Spoek Mathambo Remix) MP3

Seun Kuti’s music, with his group Egypt 80, is every bit as bombastic and exciting as his father Fela's. Though not yet 30, Kuti is a commanding bandleader, continuing the generational tradition of afrobeat. The original version of "The Good Leaf" is from his recent album, From Africa With Fury: Rise (produced by Brian Eno). This remix stays within Africa, but moves from Nigeria to South Africa, connecting with Sub Pop signee (and former FADER cover star) Spoek Mathambo, who submerges the vocal in a disco swamp, adds flange and kicks up the back beat. Still, he knows if you cannot do it with a saxophone, there's little chance it needs to be done. Seun Kuti and the Egypt 80 will be on tour across the states for two months this spring, catch the dates below the song.
