Madeleine Chartrand “Ani Kuni” (2nd Class Citizen edit)

For those that do not know, Madeleine Chartland’s “Ani Kuni” is an awesome psych, pop hit from the early 70’s. Chartland took a Native American song or chant and give it the psych, glam rock treatment.
Now in 2016 Brighton producer 2econd Class Citizen has given the track a new re-edit, but I would call this more of a remix. It’s not just taken elements and extended them, he has added a whole new feel to the track and it sounds fantastic! It’s up for download now and all yours for free, check it out and the rest of Mr Citizens back catalogue while you’re at it.
