Amadou & Mariam – “Sabali (Miike Snow Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

As its title suggests, Amadou & Mariam’s 13-song REMIXES finds a variety of DJs and producers remixing longtime Mali couple (and World Cup vets) Amadou & Mariam’s eclectic Afro-pop. Some of the revisions have been floating around, others are previously unreleased. Three teams give a go at the ’08 favorite “Sibali“: French producer Vitalic, Grey X Sage (with Theophilus London), and electro-pop trio Miike Snow, whose pleasingly Swedish version closes out the collection.
