Two of the pioneering percussionist’s tracks have been given the remix treatment.

Veteran Nigerian musician Tony Allen is perhaps best known for his pioneering work alongside Fela Kuti as part of Africa ’70. The afrobeat trailblazer, who was described by Brian Eno as “perhaps the greatest drummer who has ever lived,” released his latest LP, Film Of Life, last year.

Two of the albums tracks have been singled out for reworks on the Film Of Life Remixes EP. Ricardo Villalobos and frequent partner in crime Max Loderbauer have provided a remix of ‘African Man’, whilst Ghostly affiliate Fort Romeau serves up a remix of ‘Go Back’ for the flip side.

Film Of Life Remixes will be released via Jazz Village/Harmonia Mundi on April 7. [via Resident Advisor]
