London Luanda Remix Series by The Busy Twist


IMPORTANT NOTE: Track 4 is a vinyl exclusive track that won’t be available for download anywhere, not even here on Bandcamp.

All original tracks officially licensed from Analog Africa.

From St Lucia to Jamaica to Ghana to Colombia, London based collective The Busy Twist has travelled the globe to create their dance floor killing productions.

Their debut EP ‘Friday Night’ combines these cultures, respectfully crossing sound boundaries and joining the dots between Afro House, Kuduro, Latin and Uk Bass.

The London Luanda Remix Series is the result of digging into 1970’s popular music in Angola. Acclaimed by BBC radio host Annie Mac, and supported by the likes of Jillionaire, Buraka Som Sistema or Toddla T, some of these remixes are already being played throughout clubs and parties all over the world, but were never officially released.

Courtesy of Analog Africa, all original tracks were taken from the “Angola Soundtrack” compilation series. Includes 2 that have never been aired and one is a vinyl exclusive.

The release of these classic tribal reworks was eventually made possible thanks to the collective recent trips to Colombia, where he worked alongside Systema Solar, Ghetto Kumbé, Nidia Gongora and Palenque Records, for an impressive variety of original productions, collaborations and remixes.

In alliance with Colombia-based label Galletas Calientes Records, one of these fruitful encounters, the London Luanda Remix Series was finally materialised.
