What sounds similar to and as good as ..Mory Kante "Yeke Yeke (Hardfloor Remix)"

Is there anything as good as this in the place where world music meets trance / house / ambient ? I sincerely doubt it but any suggestions ? I do still have a soft spot for Mombassa's "Cry Freedom" which ticks quite a few boxes but is still not Yeke Yeke.

That Selif Keita remix album should do the trick, I would think. Also those Tony Allen remixes by R&S.

Lifeforce 'Kimana Tana' - mid 90s tribal meets funky house. HUGE uplifting vocals but maybe too handbaggy for your needs.

Thank you thank you. Anyone heard the Ashley Beedle mix of Amadou & Mariam ? I love some of his stuff - the funkier the better - but some of it does "plod" a bit. And I would like my kitchen disco to be as euphoric as can be.

also mid 90s, that Van Helden remix of Deep Forest's 'Marta's Song'

Blueski - good point. I have that somewhere. I seem to recall it was from his "Professional Widow" period. Leftfield also a good call.

twelve years pass...

RIP. If we were in normal times then Yeke Yeke or one of its remixes would be being played out at every club in Europe this weekend. Got a bit of a twinge thinking about the musicians who will die in lockdown and never get to have that moment of mass tribute.
