Karmaâ delivers his remix of Djarabi by Midnight Ravers
Following the footsteps of the Franco-Malian collective Midnight Ravers, who had made a big noise on the electro-mandingo scene with their second album Sou Kono, the Moroccan producer Karmaâ signed his remix of the title "Diarabi".
If the original title shines with its ethereal ambience, suspended from the crystalline strings of the kora, and with the magic voice of Fatim Kouyate, the Karmaâ remix digs a little more the electronic groove of the title, plunging the voice of Fatim in the meanders of an organic deep house, dominated by saturated oscillations of bass and incisive synths.
It must be said that the native of Casablanca, now based in Toulouse, is not a novice in this matter; with already several EPs to his credit, and the habit of working with traditional musicians, especially from the gnawa scene, he is returning to the viscera of the African continent.
