French MC Sianna slays on Namaste’s “Wat Wat” remix

South African electronic music producers Spoek Mathambo and DJ Aero Manyelo, who recently formed the collective Batuk, have remixed Namaste’s “Wat Wat,” and along with French MC Sianna, have added fuel to the fire of the dance/rap/synth/ mashup. It’s part of Red Bull Music Academy’s 20 Before 16 series.

“Wat Wat” by Swedish punk singer/rapper Naomi Namasenda, or Namaste, was originally recorded with Gnuchi, as part of the talent program Nasa Niva.

Although there’s plenty of moving parts to this remix that span language and regions, the resulting sound is pretty much electric. These artists might benefit from future collaborations.

Pick up a free download of Namaste’s “Wat Wat (Batuk remix)” at Red Bull Music Academy.

Batuk will release their first music in January. Hear their music below.
