COS BER ZAM - NE NOYA / YES I KNOW JIAO
super limited repress of the first release from daniel snaith's (aka caribou) jiaolong imprint, featuring his amazing remix of afrobeat band cos ber zam.
the a-side features snaith stamping his trademark, euphoric house sound on 'ne noya' by the togolese band. he takes their raw, funky, afrobeat drums & a snippet of vocal, looping them & then layering his giddying synths & blissful soundscapes over the top in an epic & masterful reinterpretation. the b-side features 2 daphni originals, ‘yes, i know’, a bizarre take on funky house, with filtered synths & rave pianos & a simple yet effective vocal hook, while ‘jiao’ spins gamelan rhythms with noodly synths in eastern scales to the rhythm of erratic shakers & a house beat.
