Following on from the eventual release of the mighty ‘Kalakuta‘ last week, the man behind the production has put a twist on the track in his own unique fashion. You will no doubt have seen this edit up on the XLR8R site when it was made available yesterday, but if you missed it you need to keep reading.
Incidentally ‘Zombie’ was the track that turned me on to Fela Kuti some years a go, which in hindsight was no doubt a significant factor in my foray into African music as a whole. Therefore there was a certain amount of trepidation when I came across this version. However done in a typically tasteful and imaginative manner (at least going by what we have heard from Pedestrian so far), the version is as subtle and respectful as can be.
