Bosq’s “Paciencia De Jo,” off his well-received Bosq Y Orquesta De Madera album was arguably its most played and talked about track.The Tropicalia-inspired sound backed by Brazilian chanteuse Tita Lima was the perfect song for the summer. Looking to keep the fall season at bay, Tall Black Guy drops a Brazil-by-way-of-Detroit remix ensuring a few more days of sunshine. Instrumentals for both original and remix are also included.
As the first song on the record “Paciencia De Jo” is the perfect introduction to what the album has in store for the listener; a mélange of African, Latin, and House music bound together by Soul at it’s foundation. A beautiful and infectious keyboard line ushers in the driving Batucada rhythms punctuated with soaring horns all tied in together by Tita Lima’s exquisite vocals.
Tall Black Guy’s love for Brazil is evident on his “Brazilian Chronicles” digital album from 2012 where he chops, remixes and flips classic tunes, creating his own versions that are altogether fresh and new. He fashions the beginning of his remix much in the same way as the original but replaying the keys with a more subdued feel and jazzier flavor. Once the percussion hits, the song takes on it’s Brazilian persona followed by the boom bap Detroit-styled drums, adding a little bit of grit and bottom-end punch balancing out perfectly with Tita’s airy vocals buoyantly floating on top.
