Liberian vocalist Jels Quiah has shared a remix of his previously released single, “Unction,” featuring Ice Prince and Karl Wolf and produced by Walshy Fire. This time around, Nigerian superstar, DaVido, hops on the newest rendition, adding more vocal melodies to the Afrobeat original.
This isn’t the first time Walshy Fire and Ice Prince have partnered on a production—they notably worked together on the Nigerian hip-hop artist’s most popular song on Spotify, “Particula,” through Major Lazer.
Walshy Fire’s production capabilities alongside the Atlanta-born and Lagos-raised artist’s songwriting allure treat listeners to a worldly sound, where sonic elements effortlessly dance alongside each other to strike dynamic harmonies. Beyond “Unction” and its accompanying remix, Walshy Fire: ABENG is a must-listen for listeners. The LP, which is Walshy Fire’s solo debut album, was released in 2019.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
