I don’t like Reggae. Don’t ask me why, but it’s one of the few musical styles I don’t like. For that reason, the “Ana” Contest wasn’t something I was monitoring very much.
And then HBE comes along and saves the day: what a brilliant mix! What an unexpected way to use the samples! Well structured, this mix never gets boring. I wouldn’t know anything to change to make it better.
BTW: it’s good that it’s not “super chill”. :-)
Easy 5 stars!

All I can say is WOW! This has got hit written all over it. I could see this being played by progressive dj’s the world over. I can hear the “Proton!” :)

Cool man! Reminds me very much of a lot of those really obscure dance mixes of African artists.
You obviously put a lot of thought and time into the process and for such a great reward! :)
Awesome that you explained how you did it too, I enjoy reading how others work and their secret tricks ;)

Love your work man - was blown away last year by your Copyright Criminals track, and this one is also killer.
I’ve made a little film clip (an experiment), now playing on YouTube. Check it!
This is my first clip. Let me know what you think and if you’d like me to make some more. :o)

Congratulations! I’m glad you won, and I hope your version helps spread the word about this fine artist from Mali.

Hey hisboyelroy, your stuff rocks. This track was PERFECT to use in my latest film as the backdrop for an informative narration. The segment that uses this song begins approx 50 seconds into the film.
Proper credit was given in the credits of course.

And congrats on the contest!

Very cool atmospheres created with the delays. Comes in one side, then in the other and fades… that give the track a mystical reinforced by the voice. very very good!

Amaizing track, with great atmosphere. And Vieux Farka Touré’s vocal sounds like it has been made for this track. Just cant stop listening to this one!
You’re so talented maaan! :D
