From an individual that had taken the afro-house scene by storm beyond the motherland, DM.Recordings are very proud to announce our next release from Mobi Dixon.
Mobi is an artist that has been easily identified for his soulful blends within the afro sound which is usually blessed with enticing vocals to which this time he has teamed up with Trankei Republic to give you 'Ubudoda'. This track is the definition of deep tribal afro-house as its dark drums are embedded amongst native chants and words that are drill deep into the body of the listener.
Alongside the original work of Mobi, this release has been graced with remixes from DM.Recordings very own producers who continue to display their ability to take such a great track to another level. Label owner, D-Malice takes Ubudoda on an floor-thumping extensive journey into deepness but brings further attention to the native words of Trankei Republic. Jonny Miller provides his signature 'afro-tek' mix which is a captive bouncy beat injected with an intense electric stab that is enclosed with beautiful synths.
In addition to these two great remixes, Hitman Lamberti gives a dynamic afro-tech spin to the track with great bass depth. Lastly, Infected Soul finishes off the package with further elaboration on the tribal sound by producing a breath-taking remix.

This fusion of jazz, soft rock and African rhythm best represents Mobi’s unique sound he calls tribal soul.
