AMÉMÉ reworks 2020 hit ‘Patchido’ alongside remixes from Enoo Napa and Nhii.
AMÉMÉ is on a fine run of form right now and comes off the back of his superbly received ‘Like That’ single alongside Baron (FR) on this, his One Tribe Records imprint. In 2020, he dropped ‘Patchido’, a percussive Afro-house anthem featuring vocals from Don Bello Ni that proved an early high point upon its 2020 release. Now, ‘Patchido’ gets a welcome rerelease alongside three fresh remixes for 2023 from AMÉMÉ, Enoo Napa and Nhii.
AMÉMÉ kicks off the EP with his rework, bringing the horn motif to the forefront of the mix to transform the tranquil original into a peak-time selection. Piano chords and a bumping bassline add further power to the mix, while Bon Dello Ni’s vocals are processed and looped to build into a high-energy drop.
South Africa’s Enoo Napa is next with a more paired-back remix. A menacing synth bass drives the track forward while ominous strings oscillate in the background. Choral and vocal atmospherics swell and fade, making for an evolving, tense techno journey across the track’s seven-plus minutes.
US-based Nhii closes out the remixes via a spacious chugging rework of the original, with a worming acid lead that slithers around the drums and vocal. As the track progresses, the soundscape is filled with rising arps and processed vocal cuts before falling away for a breathtaking kick drop, creating a moment destined to stick in dancers’ minds.
This is an excellent new package of remixes, each offering something powerful and unique.
