A 12" single featuring two tracks by Marcos Valle - one of Brazil's most accomplished artists and composers - remixed by underground dance music pioneers and long-time label friends, Theo Parrish and Blood fire (aka Daz I Kue). Both tracks are taken from the forthcoming Brasilia compilation: a 20th Year anniversary CD on Far Out Recordings. Throughout his six decade career, infiltrating pop, bossa nova, delicate psychedelia, jazz and funk, Marcos Valle, 'the original Rio beach boy' has consistently shown a dogged determination to transcend the traditions and structures of bossa nova, whilst never veering away from the movement's inherent, fundamental spirit. It's fair to say that the ever boundary pushing Theo Parrish can be seen in a similar vein with regards to house and techno, but his musical creativeness reaches far beyond Chicago and Detroit, as he demonstrates with this re-work of a modern Brazilian classic. The B side sees West London broken beat don, Daz I Kue return to his Blood fire alias with a remix of Marcos Valle's classic, 'Prefixio'. Core member of the world respected Bugz In The Attic collective, Daz I Kue's Blood fire mix draws upon the heritage of the bruk movement he pioneered, which drew it's own influence from jazz, hip hop, soul, reggae, house and more. The Prefixo Blood fire Remix re-appropriates Marcos Valle's beautifully melodic masterpiece for the dance floor, reinforcing the samba rhythm with a shuffling 4/4. Squelchy synth bass and looped flute parts work around samples of Marcos Valle's lush piano chord structures in a way that keeps the original melody in-tact in it's new heavier, club focused context. A club-ready, samba weapon to top off the 12"!
