Elza Soares returns with new remixes of tracks from her acclaimed The Woman At The End Of The World album (MAIS 031CD/LP, 2016). Mixing rock 'n roll, free-jazz, noise, and electronics, The Woman At The End Of The World was ripe for remixing and Mais Um Discos reached out to producers in London, Lisbon, New York, and Elza's hometown of Rio de Janeiro to create an album where the new school of cutting edge Lusophone producers -- and two legends from New York and London -- take Elza's music into new dimensions. From London there was only one man to go to for a remix -- DJ, broadcaster, label owner, and Elza's biggest fan, Gilles Peterson. Teaming up with Simbad they turn "Pra Fuder" into a percussive monster. Gilles on his contribution: "I played the album cut all 2016 and so needed a new version for this summer! An honor to work once again with my queen of grimy samba." Representing the future sound of Lisbon are Principe Discos, DJ Marfox adds his rapid-fire future-Afro-Lisbon polyrhythms to "Maria Da Vila Matilde", and Nidia Minaj turns "Pra Fuder" into a dark and moody warehouse rattler. Soundway Records' iZem gives "O Canal" a trippy Arabic feel, whilst New York ambient guru Laraaji infuses the acapella "Coracao Do Mar" with his trademark celestial vibes. Rio de Janeiro bass-head Omulu sprinkles shards of funk-carioca to "Mulher Do Fim Do Mundo", Marginal Men and BadSista give "Firmeza" low-end wobble, as Caetano Veloso cohort Ricardo Dias Gomes washes "Solto" with synths and effects. CD version includes an additional remix from Kiko Dinucci and all 11 tracks of The Woman At The End Of The World.
