After two years of concentrated working on my bandproject “Familiy Vision Care”, I attended to my new project called “Shareholder Tom” lately. To commission a Remix of your own song, is not that easy. It is an amazaing feeling, if someone grapples with your material in a completely new way. And the eagerness while waiting for the result is almost maddening. The important thing is whom to confide your tracks. However, in our case we decided right: AIFF (Afro Influenced Funk Federation) from the Netherlands are experts like no other in transporting afrobeat and roots music into our time – without loosing a piece of the force and spirit of these wonderful influences. AIFF gave a completely different temper to Fijori “Single Warrior”, on which I’m now swimming through my everyday life for some weeks.
In December 2008 “Single Warrior” will be released as 7-inch on Soulplex Recordings.
