With the very first listen, we fell in love with these phenomenal remixes by Afefe Iku and Osunlade of the marvelous "Higher" by Git and vocalist Big Brooklyn Red (originally released beginning of 2012 on Git's highly acclaimed long player "Imagination" which is available on BBE Records)... Afefe Iku combines Big Brooklyn Red's incomparable deeply rooted vocals with truly mesmerizing ancestral afro-tribal rhythms and lush keys, while Osunlade's breathtaking 'Yoruba Soul Mix' oozes with his beloved soulful sounds and a masterly orchestration featuring a beautiful guitar solo and glamorous keys alongside pulsating drums. In short, both of these remixes are guaranteed to make you yearn for more. Essential.
