African Electronic band, Bantwana’s are back again shortly after the recent success with their last release, ‘Gus & Lib EP’ on their own Bantwanas Kollektiv imprint, that saw them soaring to new heights. Their latest release is nothing short of what you’d expect from the global charting group and this time they’ve enlisted the skills of leading Cologne-based DJ and producer Tim Engelhardt to remix the title track off their EP, ‘In Silence’.
First up, Bantwana’s set things off with a mesmerizing downtempo electronica track, ‘In Silence’. Embellished with hauntingly soulful vocals, organic African rhythms and an endearing melody, that sees Bantwana’s drive for perfection and creative exploration come head to head in this masterpiece.
Next up, Tim Engelhardt flips the original on its head, whilst skillfully maintaining the elegance of the original with his remix of ‘In Silence’. Lively acoustic drum patterns, ghostly pads and a playful synth melody encompass the lush vocals of the original while commanding a more upbeat variation on the tempo of the original. Closing off the EP with a class that has become known from these two artists, leaving you with a sense of what’s to come from them in the future.
