Angel Bat Dawid’s Cover Of Sun Ra’s Nuclear War Is Remixed By Oui Ennui


Oui Ennui has remixed Angel Bat Dawid’s cover of Sun Ra’s “Nuclear War” as part of the Red, Hot + Ra tribute album. The Sun Ra tribute which is part of the Red Hot series came out last month. Ennui and Dawid have worked together in the past specifically, their 2020 album Message From The Daoui. The remix of “Nuclear War” is a combination of calm and chaos. The layers of sounds encompassing multiple voices including Sun Ra’s build anxiously with the fear of a war-inducing button push. There are three other versions of “Nuclear War” on the remix EP from Sanford Biggers, Dennis Bovell and Joel Tarman. Ennui’s remix is streaming now and the EP will officially be released on July 14th. Red, Hot + Ra: Nuclear War is the first album tribute to Sun Ra from the Red Hot organization and there are plans for more over the next two years. The late jazz visionary was a pioneer of Afrofuturism and was an early user of synthesizers. “Nuclear War” was recorded in 1982 and released as a 12″ in Britain and as an album exclusively in Italy two years later. The album was released in the United States in 2001.
