In 2016 we saw the release of the digital album “debut” by Bongo Entp. The passion project of veteran studio session player Jacob Andersen brought us an unexpectedly fresh take on South American music traditions.
On this release we see this project both revisited and expanded upon. Cherry picking some of the grooviest cuts from the album for this 12″, we also get remix treatments from well sourced collaborators Selvagem & Carrot Green. Both hailing from Brazil, these producers certainly know how to work latin percussion on a dance floor. Taking on the dreamy instrumental track “Lujón”, Carrot Green ups the tempo slightly and wrangles the elements of the original into something completely different. Adding a house kick and dark acid undertones he takes you on a wet trip with lots of twists and turns.
The production duo of Selvagem manages something similar with one of the more loose Bongo Entp. jams. The jazzy scat singalong of “Foto Feita Do Aviato” turns into an epic cosmic disco groover in their hand, locked into place by a muscular baseline. The vocal chants of the original are here, but re-arranged in a lower key and utilized more sparingly for punctuating the bounce of the rhythm.
Rounding off this affair is the inclusion of the moody “Spanish Winter” with its robotic reggae-like groove and syrup-thick synthesizers bubbling about in a bittersweet fashion.
