Mixing rock ‘n’ roll, free-jazz, noise and electronics ELZA Soares' 2016 opus 'The woman at the end of the world' was ripe for remixing and so we reached out to producers in London, Lisbon, New York and ELZA’s hometown of Rio de Janeiro to create an album where the new school of cutting edge Lusophone producers - and 2 legends from NY and LDN – could 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.
