Night Safari

06/11/15South African Five-Piece John Wizards Share Mesmerising New Remix & Video

Ever since releasing their self-entitled debut-LP back in 2013, Cape Town-based five-piece John Wizards have risen from obscurity with “a cheerful conglomeration of intricate beatwork, swirling melodies, multifaceted instrumentation, and, of course, a nod to southern African sounds” (via Okayafrica).

Most recently they delivered a mindbending remix for Italian producer Populous’ “Night Safari” that was subsequently transformed into an animated music video at the hands of Simone Brillarelli.

The “Night Safari” remix album is available via Berlin’s Bad Panda Records. But before you check out the release, feast your eyes on Brillarelli’s hypno-psychedelic excursion and your ears on the minimal mastery by John Wizards below. Wow.
