BANTU’s Disrupt The Programme Gets Remixed


BANTU’s “Disrupt The Programme” gets a house remix from Dirk Leyers who is one-half of the German production duo Africaine 808. The new version of the song moves away from the festive Afrobeat sound into a whirl of echoes and bass with percussion at the center. BANTU (Brotherhood Alliance Navigating Towards Unity) released their album Everybody Got Agenda in 2020 and Leyers’ treatment of “Disrupt The Programme” is one of the latest songs to be remixed. The Nigerian band is known in their home country for their unapologetic protest music that has revived the live music scene via the Afropolitan Vibes monthly concert series and music festival.
