Warp Records & DRC Music Announce Remix Competition
7 November 2011
The DRC music collective lead by Damon Albarn is a group of musicians who recently visited the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to produce a new album for Oxfam. T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs), Dan The Automator, Jneiro Jarel, Richard Russell, Actress, Marc Antoine, Alwest, Rodaidh McDonald and Kwes all made the trip with the plan to make an album in 5 days.
Wracked by years of conflict, the DRC is home to one of the world's worst humanitarian crises, and proceeds from the album are helping Oxfam's work, helping thousands of the DRC's poorest people.
'Hallo' was recorded on the 5 day trip to Kinshasa and is one of the tracks on Kinshasa One Two, the album released by Warp Records on 7th/8th November.
