Brazilian Rhyme / Runnin' (Re-Edited By Danny Krivit)

A true meeting of groove-legends on this extra large 12" (I mean in sonic terms - it will still fit on your turntable) as edit-expert Danny Krivit brings his expertise to a pair of oft-sampled Earth, Wind & Fire killers. On the A-side the breezy and beautiful "Brazilian Rhyme" gets stretched out, looped up and set to a shuffling breakbeat perfect for sultry summer evenings, mid afternoon BBQs and all-day dancing. Crisp and cool, this infectious groove is fully feel good. Over on the other side, Danny's flip of "Runnin'" retains the Bahaian scat of "Brazilian Rhyme" but pairs it with a driving disco-jazz bassline and reinforced drums, adding extra energy for the club systems.

Jibaro

An official, on-the-list, played-by-Alfredo "Balearic Classic", "Jibaro" is one of those timeless gems you NEED in your collection. Colombian brothers Javier and Leon Marin Velez first brought their rustic brand of folksy-Psych-rock to the listening public in 1974 with their debut LP "Angeles Y Demonios" on Columbia (no relation). The first of 3 LPs it proved a big hit in a decade later as adventurous DJs and selectors sought to soundtrack the freedom and feeling of the Ibiza experience. Though any of the various pressings of the LP featured "Jibaro", it's the 'promo only' 1986 reissue 12" (sporting that iconic jacket) all the sonic adventurers were seeking. As infectious percussion, rhythmic funk piano and Latin guitar wrap themselves into a summery groove, the chanted vocals give the dancers something to chant along to, losing themselves into the magic of the music. Add in a touch of brass, a flawless arrangement and the chanting from Titanic's "Sultana" and you've got yourself a winner!  

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Dust off the poncho and slip on your sandals, coz this one's well Balearic. Popping a giant squat on Electra's Shoom anthem, the original 'Jibaro' has been out of press for way too long. Grab yourself a copy and sway the day away to this sublime Latin groover.
