Malian superstars Amadou & Mariam will release a fourteen-track album of remixes on the 10th January 2011.

African treasures on the compilation include the township remix of 'Ce N'est Pas Bon' by South Africa's DJ Aero, and a reworking of 'Masiteladi' by Mali's Mo DJ. Two New York bootlegs also make their way onto the album with rising star Theophilus London's mix of 'Sabali' and DJ Sabo's 'Artistiya'. Classics include 2005's 'Afrikanz on Marz mix of 'Coulibaly' by Ashley Beedle and a version by Akon. Several tracks from their back catalogue are featured including 'Je Pense à Toi' from their 1999 album 'Sou Ni Tilé', the track which first brought Manu Chao's attention to the duo, which is reworked here by DJ Alix.

The couple will open for the U2 360° Tour in South Africa in February 2011.
