Γιατί το καλοκαίρι τραβάει τις καλές διασκευές όπως αυτό το πρόσφατο classic από την προηγούμενη δεκαετία!
German DJ/producer Simon Fava has worked up quite a name for himself in recent years, releasing music on labels like Superstar Records, Tiger Records, Armada Music and Kontor Records. This included his breakthrough single ‘Magalenha ft. Sergio Mendes in 2014. The single was highly supported by famous DJ’s, included at the official World Soccer Cup compilation, featured on television and a hymn of the ‘Matinée’ party at Island Ibiza.
Dutch DJ/producer Gregor Salto has been dropping his hits for a long time now, making music that moves from latin fueled dance tunes to fullblown house grooves. This included his 2005 breakthrough hit ‘Can’t Stop Playing’ together with Dr. Kucho! which turned into a worldwide hit again ten years later, when he reworked it with Oliver Heldens. In the meantime, he’s been on fire with several mixtapes and club hits like ‘Love Is My Game’, ‘Para Voce’, the Wiwek collab ‘How It Goes’ and the Grammy nominated ‘Echa Pa’lla’ with Pitbull, DJ Buddah, Papayo en Tzvetin Todorov..
And now, both artists have teamed up to rework Simon Fava’s earlier gem, taking the Sergio Mendes classic to a fresh, latin styled 2017 version with some solid Gregor Salto production. Which works wonders, looking at the DJ support so far, including the likes of Fatboy Slim, Mistajam (BBC Radio 1), Fedde le Grand, Sam Feldt, Kryder, Michale Calfan, Lost Frequencies, Dannic and loads more.
“From a young age I’ve always been interested in world music. At first I liked Balkan Beats, but then I discovered love
for Latin and South American music. In the vinyl collection of a well-known I found Sergio Mendes’ ‘Brasil 66’ and afterwards
I listened to all the tracks of this great artist. ‘Magalenha’ is my favorite because of the powerful rhythm and especially of
the duet of the girls and the boys. The moment when Sergio Mendes personally gave me the pledge for the rights to
re-record his ‘Magalenha’ was indescribable. To bring his world-known tune to my dancefloors is really exiting!” – Simon Fava
“As a kid I took some percussion lessons and my teacher introduced me to Sergio Mendes.
A world opened to me. I was totally blown away by his album ‘Brasileiro’. Sergio’s music has had a big impact on the latin house scene and it was a huge honor and pleasure to officially rework his track ‘Magalenha’ with the magic vocals of another Brazilian legend: Carlinhos Brown.
This brings sunshine and happiness to the dance floor wherever I play.” – Gregor Salto
