A couple of years ago, a small group of London-based musicians took a trip to Kenya as part of what they call a "musical exchange," and spent their time in the country living and collaborating with local musicians in Nairobi. The result of their jamming and recording sessions became the Owiny Sigoma Band, and the first release to come from that project is a two-track 12" single for the song "Wires" (pictured above), which will be released by Gilles Peterson's Brownswood label on April 16 as a part of the worldwide Record Store Day. On the b-side of that record is this remix by Detroit icon Theo Parrish, who manages to strip down the relatively simple composition to create an even sparser groove. The veteran DJ/producer utilizes only a few elements of Owiny Sigoma Band's original recordingthe upbeat drumming, the infectious bassline, and the warm vocal melodyto build the framework of his track, over which he lays a subtle dose of electronics and barely noticeable audio treatments. The effect sounds something like Parrish actually conducting a live band on the spot rather than simply toying with its recordings.
