Novalima Coba Coba Remixed

Novalima Coba Coba Remixed
Since releasing Coba Coba last November, Novalima have been on fire with critics and global dance fans alike for their musical blend of Afro-Peruvian call-and-response traditions with dub, house, salsa, breaks and whatever else they like. Coba Coba Remixed finds a who's who of international producers offering treatments. The chill-out room blend Boozoo Bajou cooks into "Africa Landó" draws upon rich vocal samples, warm keys and strings for that trip-hop-meets-dub-salsa feeling few acts anywhere can recreate. EarthRise's "Bedouin Breakdown" remix of "Se Me Van" takes the driving Spanish guitars to a crescendo few other tracks on the disc match. Along with "Bomba" (ah, electronic ó!), "Tumbala" gets a couple of different revisions: Da Lata's disc-opener shines as an Afro-samba-house-meets-electric-rhumba mix, while SteamerPilot's "¡Azu Madre!" remix hits the deep Peruvian house harder than cane rum on an empty stomach. This is bound to fire up some house party dance floors this summer, which is what counts. (Cumbancha)
