Remix albums are easy to ignore, so let’s start at the beginning. Félicité is an award-winning film centered around the vibrant music scene of Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The backing band for the lead character in this movie are the Kasai Allstars, a well known act from the region known for mixing traditional sounds with what has been described as “Congotronics”. Félicité Remixes features reworks of the original motion picture soundtrack by electronic composers such as Clap! Clap!, Daedelus, Loopido, High Wolf and more. It casts a wide net, with heavy new wave connotations on tracks like “Drowning Goat” to more dub reggae influence on the title cut #5, to even more background noise on title cut # 7.
