"The Awa Band return after some time out to follow the success of their last single 'Timba', remixed to great effect on Defected a few years ago. This time they feature the legendary Tony Allen on drums. He needs little introduction these days but for those of you who don't know he was the drummer and band Leader of Fela Kuti's Africa 70 band that ruled Nigeria for the whole of the 70's. 'Bababatteur' is a tribute to Tony himself: the band features Dele Sosimi on Keyboards (Ex Fela) and Barbara Snow on Vocals. As well as the English version there is a French mix, Tony being a Parisian resident these days. Add Will Quantic on the mix and we end up with a nice Afro-Groover for the coming Summer months."
