Lekan Babalola is a creative force to be reckoned with, a film maker, curator and superb precusionist and musician who hails from Lagos, who has worked with many Jazz & Afro greats like Roy Ayers, Fela Kuti, Branford Marsalis and Jean Toussaint. He also likes a good remix, knowing that his music reaches far greater audiences and he's been remixed by some truly talented people like Joe Claussell, Phil Asher, Mark de Clive-Lowe even Bob Sinclar (who's talent is unquestionable, but who's taste in production has diminished radically since his first album). This track 'Asokere' gets a brilliant work over from broken beat genius IG Culture and comes off the remix disc released alongside Babalola's 'Songs of the Icon' Album, another very worthy buy.
