Earlier this year, Brazilian duo Selvagem joined forces with Optimo's JD Twitch to reissue Maria Rita's Brasileira, an obscure, 1998 full-length that had long been a "holy grail" for lovers of contemporary Brazilian music and Balearic enthusiasts alike. Here, two tracks from that set are given the remix treatment. Selvagem and Carrot Green join forces on the A-side to deliver a lolloping, soft touch house mix of "Cantico Brasileiro No. 3 (Kamajura)". Wrapping Rita's drifting vocal, Amazonian flutes and bustling analogue synth-bass around a solid kick-drum and layered hand percussion, it's something of an epic. Arguably even better is Joakim's flipside rub of "Lamento Africanus/Rictus", which sees bleeping new age melodies and foreboding synth lines rise above a bed of dreamy vocal samples and hypnotic drum machine hits.
