rough trade exclusive with the legendary download only mixtape as a bonus cd - it's worth the admisson price alone. the mix tape features mia, vampire weekend, cannibal ox, architecture in helsinki, dj cleo, michael jackson, ruby suns etc. back in 2007, a chance meeting at a second-hand furniture store led the malawian singer esau mwamwaya to team up with underground european dj / producer duo radioclit to form the very best. last year they dropped 'esau mwamwaya and radioclit are the very best', a leftfield surprise of a mixtape that joyously smashed borders and gate-crashed numerous end-of-year lists. without promotional assistance or financial support, the collection of well-known pop, dance, afro and indie tracks remixed by radioclit and featuring mwamwaya's singing charted more than 300,000 downloads and was hailed by tastemakers including pitchfork, fader, and gorilla vs bear among many others. the good news is that that mixtape didn't mark the end of this unique collaboration, and now they unleash the very best's dazzling debut lp, 'warm heart of africa'. released on moshi moshi records, and featuring guest appearances from m.i.a. and vampire weekend frontman ezra koenig, 'warm heart of africa' is a celebratory triumph destined to soundtrack the summers of aficionados everywhere. like the mix tape it's a joyous and smooth mix of pop, dance, afro and indie that will fill every and any dancefloor.
