The first remix of Lakou Mizik & Joseph Ray’s ‘Leave the Bones’ album comes from respected Dutch producers 16BL. Having accrued support from the likes of Pete Tong, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Tycho, Kolsch, Adam Port, and John Digweed, 16BL have cemented themselves as one of melodic and deep house’s forefront producer duos. In their reimagining of lead single ‘Ogou (Pran Ka Mwen)’, 16BL apply their analogue production techniques to create a warm enveloping chord progression and a fervent rhythm, and emphasise the original’s chanting vocals.
‘Ogou (Pran Ka Mwen)’ is an impassioned plea to the Vodou spirit of Iron and War for protection from the brutality of life’s daily battles. It is the first single lifted from ‘Leave the Bones’, a six-year collaboration between Haitian band Lakou Mizik and GRAMMY-winning producer Joseph Ray, out August 6.

In August last year, Anjunadeep released ‘Leave the Bones’, the powerful album born of an unlikely collaboration between multi-generational Haitian band Lakou Mizik and GRAMMY-winning electronic music artist Joseph Ray.
The album garnered global attention, gaining support from the world’s premiere tastemakers for it’s daring sound design and vibrant depiction of Haitian Vodou culture. National Public Radio called the album a “mesmerizing, haunting and uplifting journey into the heart of Haitian culture”. The Times rated ‘Leave the Bones’ four out of five stars, whilst Mixmag named it a “celebration of creativity and possibility in the face of adversity”. The French-Canadian newspaper Le Devoir called it an album “that exposes the richness of the musical culture of the Antilles to the entire planet”, whilst global music magazine Songlines called it “message-driven, lovingly made; an album to play on repeat.” The album saw equally fervent recognition on radio, quickly reaching #1 on the NCAA world music charts and garnering support from Pete Tong, Danny Howard, and Sian Eleri at BBC Radio 1, Don Letts and Radcliffe & Maconie at BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio 3, NPR, NTS, KCRW, KEXP, SiriusXM Chill, Resonance FM, Radio X, Jazz FM and Worldwide FM.
