New Amampondo remix - Sibuyele 915

Producer and engineer Murray Anderson was asked by our label to remix a third Amampondo track. We chose a song from their early recordings that at the time of the original release was something of a ground breaking trance tune. 

The latest is remix of Sibuyele 915 from their live album, Feel the Pulse of Africa. Murray remixed two other songs by the group which were released in 2019 - when one could still get out to a club. As with the previous mixes he has taken the approach of keeping the energy level high with concentration on the drums.

The composition of song was credited to the late Amampondo drummer, Michael Ludonga. As with all the group's early works the whole band had a hand in finishing the work for the stage.

Listed as Sibuyele 915 (Murray Anderson Mixes), the release is on an EP titled Amampondo - Dance, containing the studio master of Sibuyele 915, as well as pumped up master (credited - Electro Tiger Master) of the new mix, and the two previous mixes of Mawethu and Nomabongo also re-mastered with the Electro Tiger effects.

The tracks will be available on streaming and download platforms from 4th April 2021.
