I love this song (incidentally it features Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend) one of my faves from 2009 but it didn’t have that boom – or any boom at all. None of the mixes had a really deep beat or dance production, so here’s my first ever solo remix as fingertrouble, I took the Theophilus London mix and added some beats and stuff. It’s a hybrid of remix and mash, with some crafty loopage from various parts but the african kwaito-inspired beat and teh boom is mine.
Also the original song doesn’t have an official video, so here’s a video I’ve made and shot in Africa (Ethiopia and South Africa) a few weeks ago. Also includes some video of the bonkers Sir Victor Uwaifo performing Guitar Boy – which where The Very Best got that great guitar sample from!
Hope you like it – it was originally part of the Take Me Back To Africa video podcast but I’ve remixed the video too.

EDIT: Finally created a downloadable/iPod version* for my Warm Heart of Africa video/remix. Download, enjoy etc.
