about

On Amazones Power – The Remixes, West African musical collective Les Amazones d’Afrique re-imagine songs from their sophomore release Amazones Power, collaborating with underground DJs and producers from the EDM world.

At the beginning of the 2020 lockdown, the band made their track ‘Love’ available online to inspire creativity and connect with other musicians during a time of social isolation. They had an overwhelming response (more than 500 producers took part) and thus began a new remote musical conversation across countries and continents. The final result is an EP which covers deep techno, afro house, downtempo and dance-pop, poised and ready to bring the band’s powerful messages of gender equality and an end to violence against women to the dancefloors.

“It has been a difficult year for so many — particularly for those, like us, whose careers depend on live music performance. We missed out on exciting plans to spread the message of our second album Amazones Power to audiences across Europe. However, we had a wonderful opportunity to make new connections remotely through an open remix project. This EP is a gift to you all — a reminder to stay positive and to keep dancing through good times and bad. We thank all of the producers for their work on this fun and uplifting project and hope that it can bring some sunshine to you all this summer.” Les Amazones d’Afrique
