Check Out a Collaborative Tune from Addison Groove and DJ Die
- Words: Patric Fallon
It seems that UK DJ/producer Addison Groove (pictured above) has been on something of a collaborative tear recently, working with the likes of Sam Binga and drum & bass veteran DJ Die on a handful of 808-heavy tracks. One of those latest productions is a frantic tune which samples the famous Brazilian song "Morro Do Dendê" for its juke-inspired purposes. Speaking on his "Morro Dub Dendê" track with DJ Die, Addison Groove says, "Rather than sell the tune, we decided to make a video for it. We simply don't want to profit from what the message is about, which is the growing corruption within Brazil." And the clip which accompanies the music fits perfectly with the message, as the two Bristolian producers have borrowed bits of the 2007 film Tropa de Elite to highlight the "national unrest within Brazil" and "give a little insight into whats really happening." The video for Addison Groove & DJ Die's "Morro Dub Dendê" can be seen below.
