NEW REMIX: Mista Silva – “Lifestyle” LUX€ BOYZ Remix

“Silva has built up a worldwide reputation for exporting the Afrobeat flavour.” COMPLEX UK

Mista Silva, the godfather and figurehead of the rapidly developing Afrobeats wave in inner-city London, releases a new remix of his recent dancehall anthem ‘Lifestyle’ by Mike Skinner and Murkage Dave’s Tonga Balloon Gang beatmakers, LUX€ BOYZ.

With Silva currently on tour across the UK with both Skinner and club phenomenons Tonga Balloon Gang, it was only fitting to get their take on Silva’s original tropical-infused banger. LUX€ BOYZ place a trademark dark, 2-step bassline over Silva’s immediately distinguishable baritone, creating a bouncy, murky and strangely nostalgic edit.

“Tonga boasts a wilder creative energy than you’ll find at most established UK club nights.”THE FADER

One of the most prominent and exciting new underground scenes bubbling in London city, Afrobeats is where many of Grime’s stars themselves are now at – recognising it as the new wave following the increasingly mainstream exposure that Grime is now experiencing. Artist such as J Hus, D Double E and H Block are all regularly spotted at the dancehall sound parties pioneered by Silva. The Ghanaian originator is rightfully nominated for his 3rd MOBO this year for Best African Act and sets the scene with this new heater.
