Amadou & Mariam's songs have proved fertile territory for remixing and have seen the likes of Theophilus London, Rob Da Bank and Bullion ply their craft. Most recently, Nas and Damian Marley sampled "Sabali" to great effect on their new album track 'Patience'. Radioclit and Bob Sinclar jumped at the chance to work their magic on new single "Africa".

Radioclit are more commonly known for quirky, uber-fashionable, new world music and afropop production, previously remixing tracks by M.I.A, Metronomy, Shit Disco and even Justin Timberlake and Lily Allen. While still sticking to their roots with plenty of afro-pop influences, this mix sees them moving into a new realm of production for the second time (a remix for Kidjo being the first). The result is a big room, 4/4 monster that is sure to be an Ibiza anthem this summer.

Grammy Award-nominated and legendary French producer/DJ, Bob Sinclar's devotion to black culture is no secret. His 'Africanism' project in the late 90s/early noughties saw a string of releases that were embraced by the underground and mainstream alike. His work since has often drawn on those early influences, being clearly motivated by his passion and love of the music.

Describing his "Africa" remix as 'a hymn to joy', he has kept the authenticity of the track, and added his own club touch, enhancing the original colour in a way only he knows how.
