COPENEMA

After a string of succesful singles, "Deixa Musica A Tocar", "So Vejo Voce", "E A Felicidade" and the DJ Harvey supported "Te Faz Bem" and "Serei Seu", The Danish / Brazilian quartet constellation Copenema (Copenhagen / Ipanema = Copenema) release their debut album "Deixa Musica a Tocar".

The album mixes European electronica influences with Brazilian songwriting style. The sound becomes unique and some would say Balearic.The albums leading single "Te Faz Bem", a funky downtempo track with live saxophone, flute and rhythm guitars and a bassline to die for has become somewhat a national Ibiza Balearic anthem over the past years and spread worldwide especially due to the massive support from DJs incl from Harvey to DJ Pippi to Pete Tong.

"Serei Seu" the second single is another Ibiza fave is a funky party track that sounds like a modern Jorge Ben. The single “So Vejo Voce” is Stan Getz meets the beach vibes, “Festa De Relaxamento” an Alfredo fave is jazzy Brazilian funk vibes with heavy live drums and a bass line that wants you to move.

"Lullaby For Impanema" is sunset material. The band's first recording the 12 min beautiful jazzy cosmic downtempo Pat Metheny influenced and Leo Mas supported "Some Di Some Day" is pure bliss and a sunset fave amongst the Balearic community.

The album has three added bonus tracks - "Can’t Sleep" and "Nada Mais" both recorded in a Music For Dreams writers camp recently and the 12 minute journey of Serei Seu by Danilo Braca.


Two Music For Dreams releases in two weeks? The Balearic gods are smiling our way. Somehow sunnier than last week's luxurious Dalholt and Langkilde LP, this lush Latin wax winds its hips between house, Balearic and bossa, garnering support from DJ Harvey, Pete Tong, Ruf Dug, Alfredo and Mison in the process. Our beach party opens with "Te Faz Bem", the most played Balearic beauty of Harvey's Mercury Rising residency at Pikes last summer, which flexes its feathers here in true 'Coma Club' fashion thanks to MFD main man Kenny Bager. Solid Balearic beat percussion nods along nicely in support of the swaying bassline before Latin guitar, echo drenched vocals and eventual bursts of brass kick up the warm smell of colitas. Add in flamenco hand claps, opulent Rhodes chords and a mercurial flute solo and you'll find me sharing a cigar with Maitê Proença and Zico in the corner of an exotic beach bar. Italian DJ don Riccio ups the tempo on the A2, injecting those South American elements with a shuffling carnival house beat and buzzing synth lines while dubbing out the vocal for a deeper version that's a dream to mix. Over on the flip we roll shoulders and shimmy along to the Balearic disco delights of "Deixa Música Tocar" (Let The Music Play), a hypnotic offering alive with incessant bass, scatted vocals and extended trumpet solos. Finally K-Bag takes the controls again for an alternate mix of "Deixa Música Tocar" which tweaks the arrangement into something playful, punchy and percussive, like Tony Allen on a South American vacation.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Another sweet summery treat from the good ship MFD here as the Harvey approved "Te Fez Bem" from Copenema gets a vinyl release. Featuring top reworks from Kenneth Bager and Riccio this is a caliente cut folks. Scorchio!
