i haven’t really had a holiday this year. yeah i’ve had weekends in edinburgh and london (the latter for field day) but a full-on holiday has, unfortunately, been out of the equation. so i’m living vicariously through the music on this one. last week i expressed my love for myd‘s train to bamako, but now he’s bringing a smile to my face with his remix of rainbow arabia‘s holidays in congo. kuduro riddims, squelchy basslines, and the nicest parts of the original track’s mixture of grunge-meets-world-pop – the band themselves have described it as “fun and punchy.” let it into your life and watch it brighten up your day.
