    Malian superstar Salif Keita has been recording inventive, fusion-based solo albums since the late 1980s. With his soaring, soulful tenor and synthesis of African, Latin, jazz, and Euro-pop music, Keita has crafted a significant niche for himself on the world music stage. Released in 2002, MOFFOU found the singer paring his sound down to rootsy African rhythms and melodies, eventually leading to 2004's REMIXES FROM MOFFOU, which features DJ treatments of tracks on the former album.
    The opener, "Madan," is a tasteful touch-up in which a spare pulse underscores, but does not overpower, the band's web of percussion. A later remix of the same track, however, flirts with fragmented glitch-hop. "Moussolou (Yoruba Soul Mix)" adds an energetic techno backing to Keita's smoother, Latin-inflected mode. Throughout, cutting, looping, echo effects, and other DJ production tricks re-frame the music's usual grooves (especially the treatments applied to the sweet phrasing of Keita's backing singers). An intriguing take on Keita's celebrated music, REMIXES FROM MOFFOU gives fans a new angle on his songs, while providing club-culture mavens with a portal into the sounds of Mali.
