Gonjasufi – The Caliph’s Tea Party

Gonjasufi - The Caliph's Tea Party

Cover Artwork

Remix albums: a phenomena started by Sly & The Family Stone and popularized (and eventually overdone) in the nineties. Usually a collection of remixes that have been circling around on vinyl for ages, but then the only way for people who traded their turntables for a CD player to listen to them. Well, that’s how it usually goes.

But then there’s one of my favourite albums of the year, A Sufi And A Killer, and a label like Warp Records. How could the outcome be just usual? The announcement is now official, titled The “Caliph’s Tea Party”, the remix album will drop on October 4th, 2010.

Below you can listen to the Mark Pritchard remix of Ancestors, another one by Bear In Heaven can be found here.
