Fela Kuti’s “Colonial Mentality” x Pharrell Williams “Happy”

“Happy” is probably my favorite song of the past year, and I wanted to make a blend that wasn’t too obvious, but made sense upon first listen. I thought the shuffle tempo, driving bass lines and horns of Fela Kuti could provide a nice backdrop, so I chopped up his classic, “Colonial Mentality,” and this is the end result. Hope you enjoy!” -dj100proof
