Gallo Record Company’s new initiative, Gallo Remixed, celebrates the record label’s 95th birthday by releasing an EP that shines a light on their rich catalogue, choosing four artists to work alongside Grammy nominated producer and DJ, Black Coffee, by reimagining treasured African songs from Gallo’s catalogue for a new audience.

Artists Sun El Musician, Da Capo, Muzi, Mpho Sebina and Nobuhle all feature on the first Gallo Remixed EP, Music Is Forever, available to stream from the 17th of December across digital platforms.

As one of the most celebrated jazz recordings from South Africa, Winston “Mankunku” Ngosi’s 1968 classic “Yakhal’Inkomo” inspired poems, artworks and countless thought-pieces, and was chosen by electronic DJ and producer Muzi to reimagine. Breaking out of his comfort zone and flexing his sampling skills, Muzi’s version is a funk-rooted one that revamps a jazz standard for a new audience.
