Junior Gong & Nas versus Mulatu Astatke

posted on January 28th, 2010 by in Audio

While we still got to wait about three months for the release of the feature-length combination album of Damian Marley and Nas (“Distant Relatives”), Schowi (Yum Yum posse) gives us a little lesson in music industry.

He took a closer look at the sample Marley and Jones used for the beat of “As we Enter”, the latest (and strongest) track that leaked from the “two Obamas” so far, and teaches us that it comes from

legendary ethiopian jazz musician Mulatu Astatke’s “Yegelle Tezeta” was first used in Jim Jarmusch’s film “Broken Flowers” and has since appeared on Optimo Espacio’s “Sleepwalk” LP.

Thanks! Here´s both – the source and the re-interpretation:
