Back in July, Brazilian singer Luísa Maita released her debut album, Lero-Lero, a record that took samba's and bossanova's most distinctive rhythms and paired them with electronic music's frequent ability to create soundscapes that bridge then, and now. Pushing those sonic boundaries further on Maita Remixed, XLR8R favorites like Maga Bo, DJ /rupture, and Seiji offer melted-border interpretations of Maita's already adventuresome music. Posted to the happy mess that is his mudd up! blog, Jace Clayton (a.k.a. DJ /rupture) offered up his remix of the album's title track in all its free glory. The song takes the sunny brightness of the original's guitar melodies and muddies it in a rain-bursting cloud of delay and reverb. Rupture then sends Maita's voice through a dancehall singjay's Auto-Tuner, putting her in outer space as she bounces, gravity-defying, over warm jetstreams of kicks and snares.
