London vocalist Yadi released her new glimmering pop single “Creatures” on August 22nd through Seven Brother Records, the track was co-written with L.A producer Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM, Major Lazer, Usher) and produced by Ariel along with London based Swedish producer Johan Hugo (known for his work with The Very Best, M.I.A, Dan Croll).

Branko (of Buraka Som Sistema) and fellow Portuguese producer King Kong remixes the track into a galloping tropical bass smasher that manages to keep the pop sensibility of the original.

“In England you would probably call this a ‘Afrobeats’ mix, thats the new term that people use to bunch together all new contemporary African dance music. But at the end of the day its dance music from all over the world. UK to Nigeria. Malawi to Sweden. Germany to Ghana. Portugal to Angola. America to Kenya.

We called the mix Anzanga, because it means ‘friends’ in Malawi’s national language Chichewa, and this is the kind of mix you should listen to with your friends in the park when you’re having a few drinks and lighting the BBQ!

We hope you enjoy it! Love. Johan & Esau (The Very Best)”
