2000 release. Long awaited and gathering momentum with each new volume, Misturada 4 hits you with electronically inspired reinterpretations by Friends From Rio. Here's the plan - go to Rio, record rich essentially Brazilan music in Brazil with the best musicians on the scene; Cross the sea back to London, and send out the material to dance music producers like IG Culture, Da Lata, Kirk Degiorgio; Wait for the remixes to arrive. For Volume 4, the album Friends From Rio 2 (1998) is the starting point and the map for these trips into the subconscious of each track. The divergent paths of the different producers take you cross genres to give you a living history of dance music with a heady Brazilian vibe. Included are IG Culture's radical reworking of "Cravo E Canela", featuring the gorgeous Afro-vocals of Bembe Segue. The track "Sob O Mar" is given added grooves by Kyoto Jazz Massive - an insistent beat and jazzy piano submerge you in Nair Candia's seductive underwater vocal. While "Escravos Do Jo" is transformed into a hard "come-to-the-Carnival"-bateria. The original sweetness of the track replaced with a harsh tribal feel in this stripped down remix by Da Lata. Offworld (Kirk Degiorgio) go off-world with easy paced jazz mutating into astral drum and bass, and Flytronix keeps the melody winding between the heavy bass in the slamming mix of "Super Legal". The album also features killer cuts from Roc Hunter, APE, 4 Hero, the original. Essential Amazonian adventuring - a perfect soundtrack for the summer. Also features: Soul Circuit, Seiji.
