Tel Aviv-based re-editor and producer Jean-Claude Gavri has decided to launch his own label, Keepers. The first release shines a light on the criminally underappreciated work of Scandinavian keys-man Roman Andren, wth Gavri breathing new life - via officially sanctioned, multi-track reworks - of two tunes from the Rain King album. Gavri does a particularly good job of remixing Afro-funk meets jazz-funk jam "Rain King (Oba Ojo)", subtly building up the pressure throughout, whilst giving the track a looser, sweatier feel. On the flip he turns his attention to the Tony Allen/Fela Kuti-influenced "The Child That I Am (Omo Kekere Ti Moje)", gradually building up the dancefloor pressure until it turns into a punchy Afro-disco smasher.
