Aluna is back with a brand new 10-track collection of remixes, RENAISSANCE (Remixes) featuring club-ready re-workings of tracks from her debut solo album, Renaissance, out now via Mad DecentSpanning multiple genres of dance and electronic music, the collection features exciting collaborations with a diverse array of predominantly POC and female producers, including Lady BeeAustin MillzTSHABella Boo & UNIIQU3 to name a few.
 
Speaking about the new project, Aluna reveals, “For the first time in a long time we have the idea of a better future to celebrate, one with more unity than ever before and that’s what this remix collection embodies – it’s more like a festival line up of the future than a remix album-melanated, lgbtqia, global and bringing the queen shit.”

Also included in the remix package, Bronx, NY-based producers, remixers and DJ duo The Martinez Brothers’ remix of “The Recipe,” originally a collaboration with KAYTRANADA, which fuses afrobeat elements in with his trademark percussion and the mesmerizing vocals of Nigerian singer-songwriter Rema. Listen to “The Recipe” (The Martinez Brothers Remix) HERE.
 
Last fall, Aluna unveiled the official video for “The Recipe”, directed by Reggie. (AKA Clay Dirkse and Jake Herman). “I wanted to play with the way history has been dictated to us,” she says. “Growing up in England you are constantly exposed to glamorous white history of period dramas without a black person in sight. I feel that since the British Empire was so heavily funded by slavery that history is ours too, we’ve just never been pictured in the finery…and I wanted to see what that would look like.” Watch the video for “The Recipe” HERE.
 
Earlier this winter, to commemorate World AIDS Day (December 1st), (RED) and Africa’s most influential record label, Mavin Records, joined forces to raise funds to fight two pandemics: COVID-19 and AIDS.  The remix of hit single “Jaiye” by Mavin Artist LADIPOE, features Aluna and Sigag Lauren, is available to stream and download worldwide, with all proceeds going to support (RED)’s efforts to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on life-saving HIV/AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa.
