A remix album where the new school of cutting edge Lusophone producers - and 2 legends from NY and LDN – take ELZA’s music into new dimensions.
From London there was only one man to go to for a remix – DJ, broadcaster, label owner & ELZA’s biggest fan - Gilles Peterson. Teaming up with Simbad they turn Pra fuder into a percussive monster. Said Gilles: “I played the album cut all 2016 and so needed a new version for this summer! An honor to work once again with my queen of grimy samba”.
Representing the future sound of Lisbon are Principe Discos’ DJ Marfox – who adds his rapid-fire future-Afro-Lisbon polyrhythms to Maria da Vila Matilde - & Nidia Minaj, who turns Pra fuder into a dark and moody warehouse rattler.
Soundway Records’ iZem gives O Canal a trippy Arabic feel whilst NY ambient guru Laraaji infuses the acapella Coracao do mar with his trademark celestial vibes.
Rio de Janeiro basshead Omulu sprinkles shards of funk-carioca to Mulher do fim do mundo, Marginal Men and BadSista give Firmeza low end wobble as Caetano Veloso cohort Ricardo Dias Gomes washes Solto with synths and effects.
