Why do we like this?

You really can't beat a good Afro-edit. Keeping all the soul and dusty charm of the original, whilst making a few delicate changes to make it playable on the dancefloor is no easy feat.

Estonian producer Ajukaja has certainly found the formula, with his track "Benga Benga," a re-edit of Samba Mapangala & Orchestre Virunga's "Yembele." It was was originally released three years ago, and has slowly worked it's way into the record boxes of the likes of Young Marco and Four Tet.

Because this came out three years ago, its not that easy to find on vinyl. A recent reissue was also snapped up in no time at all. If you want a copy, the best place to look however is the Discogs marketplace, though you will have to pay top dollar. Meanwhile, keep up with Ajukaja on Facebook and Soundcloud.
