Mdou Moctar releases Afrique Victime Digital Deluxe Edition & new single ‘Nakanegh Dich’

Mdou Moctar has released the deluxe edition of Afrique Victime, via Matador Records / Remote Control Records, expanding the album with nine previously unreleased songs, including the studio outtake, ‘Nakanegh Dich.’ “These are a mix of demos from Niger and some live tracks from touring around the world, when we were still working out the songs together as a band,” says bassist and producer Mikey Coltun“These are fun and different early versions of the songs.”

New single ‘Nakanegh Dich,’ was recorded in Los Angeles with Rob Schnapf during sessions for the album. “This is Mdou’s very first time using a wah pedal,” explains bassist and producer, Mikey Coltun. “At some point, Mdou called Rob into the studio and asked him to control the wah with his foot while Mdou shredded a solo.”
