Sababa 5 & Shiran Tzfira – Sei Yona (Manqo Remix)

Batov Records presents a mesmerizing and DJ-friendly remix of Sababa 5 and Sharin Tzfira’s “Sei Yona” by enigmatic deep house duo, Manqo.

Middle Eastern groove merchants Sababa 5 and Yeminite chanteuse
Shiran Tzfira, captured heads and moved bodies with their brilliant collaborative EP ‘Rali’, blending Yeminite folk with global funk, disco and a touch of psychedelic rock, earning praise and plays from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music icons Cerys Matthews and Gideon Coe.

In this reimagined version, Manqo infuses the track with an irresistible four-to-the-floor beat, enhancing its dancefloor impact while preserving the essence of the original’s brilliant pop potential. The Middle Eastern synth lines, funky bassline, and rock backbeat remain intact, seamlessly fitting into their new sonic realm.

Manqo’s rise has been swift, marked by success with releases on Keinemusik’s Rampa imprint and a feature on Playstation’s GTA 5. Notably, two EPs on Damian Lazarus’ revered Crosstown Rebels label, including a remix by Afro-house pioneer Black Coffee, cemented their place in the house music world.

With this subtle rework, Manqo breathes new life into “Sei Yona,” elevating it to a dancefloor banger and versatile DJ weapon.
