DA LATA “Remixes”
release date: 30. June 2014
Agogo Records – LC 15656
Hot on the heels of their stunning album release Fabiola, Da Lata ease into Summer with a release primed for the festival season, and World Cup 2014. Two stunning remixes from Fabiola coupled with the much praised All-stars Live version of “Ronco Da Cuica” make this a package to be reckoned with.
“Ronco” captures the live band in full flight with telling contributions from Finn Peters (sax) , Diabel Cissokho (kora) and Jandira Silva and Floetic Lara (vocals/rap), supported by everyone from Gilles Peterson to Shuya Okino, “Ronco Da Cuica” is organic club music at it’s most energetic and exciting. Eddy&Dus celebrate their reunion with a sublime House mix of “Unknown” featuring Mayra Andrade, the Croatian production duo carved out a great reputation back in the early 2000s, now back together after a ten year hiatus, they prove how much they’ve grown and matured in the interim on “Unknown”. Perfect sonics, rolling bass, beats and sublime keys lift Mayra’s plaintive vocal for the dance-floor; deep but accessible, smooth but still funky, this is pedigree House music for 2014. Finally Drumagick work their wizardry in the timeless Brazilian drum and bass style on “Deixa”. maintaining all the charm and subtle swing of Jandira Silva’s vocal but double timing the beats, changing the bass, and adding some of their own instrumental flourishes they make this as classic as anything in this fertile sub-genre.
Available on a twelve inch for vinyl freaks and music lovers this is a taster for a fully fledged remix album which will also include freshly recorded live Da Lata material !
