BSWC One-a-Day: dubdentist - "Ana" (Dub Dentist Pan Global Remix)

Well, the contest is on at ccMixter. On February 7th the Vieux Farka Touré remix contest opened and they will be accepting entries through 9:00 pm Pacific time on March 7. There have already been a bunch of tempting entries, but Dub Dentist put together a remix that really stood out for me. I'm sure there will be others and I might include them as One-a-Day selections, but this one is great.

Vieux Farka Touré is currently on tour in North America (Friday he played in Manhattan and last night he was in Toronto). He is the son of the late international superstar and two-time Grammy Award-winner Ali Farka Touré. Both Touré and the label that produces his music are working on social issues on the African continent with 10 percent of album proceeds going towards Bée Sago which is an organization that specializes in production and distribution of insectided-treated mosquito netting to children and pregnant mothers in Mali.

A representative of Touré's production company, Modiba Productions, had this to say about the competition:
"One of Modiba's central goals as an organization is collaboration, the expansion of boundaries to bring in new ideas and approaches through working together in an open and dynamic way. The Creative Commons project is a perfect example of this, and we look forward to bringing more talented and inspired minds to further explore the sounds of Vieux Farka Touré."
If you are a Mixter, then get over there to ccMixter and do your thing. If you are like me, simply sit back and enjoy the show.
