'Fazendo as pazes com o swing (Making peace with 'the' swing)' is Orquestra Imperial's sophomore album and a majestic offering of gafieira samba shot through with a psychedelic twist of rock guitar riffs, tropicalia, salsa, bolero and beyond. Here we offer two remixes that take the Orquestra on two radically different journeys.
Fresh from his slamming remix of Ondatropica and other remixes for Agogo, ZZK records and Wah Wah 45's, iZem pulls out all the stops for this carnival banger. Stretching out the tune for the DJs, iZem then adds an ominous b-line, tweaks the percussion till it almost shatters whilst adding some synths in the second half to take the tune to another level.
Os Ritmistas are a trio of Rio-based percussionists - Domenico Lancelotti and Stephane San Juan (who both perform with the Orquestra) and Dany Roland. Here they add echo, percussion and freaky vibes to create a twisted carnival classic.
