After an immensely successful first volume out on Innervisions, featuring top notch remixes by Henrik Schwarz and Olof (The Knife), Sudan Votes Music Hopes (SVMH) returns with SVMH RMXD003, a project involving local Sudanese musicians collaborating with the likes of Tyler Pope (!!!, LCD Soundsystem, Hercules & Love Affair) and Edward (White, Berlin).
Timing here is key: On July 9, South Sudan becomes the world's newest nation. Sudan's civil war and armed conflicts have roots in the deep contrast between its developed centers and marginalized peripheries. So anything to bridge these gaps is a step in the right direction. This release is a significant step in bridging this gap, as it brings the sounds of Sudan to the world.
