Black Masala enlisted the help of some great producers from around the globe to remix their recent album I Love You Madly. The band's multi-genre approach and wide array of musical influences provide a rich bed of sounds to rework the tracks and the results are seriously booty shaking.
Oh No What Can I Do has been one of the most popular and exciting new songs in the Black Masala live show and it gets two different remixes for this release. First up is New Zealand born producer and DJ Sammy Senior, and the result is a booming transition track which starts with ghetto funk beats and breaks and morphs into a drum'n'bass stomper by the end. Sao Paulo native and Royal Soul Records label boss Trotter has taken Oh No What Can I Do in a different direction, a laid-back ride full of funky horns, guitar skanks and dubbed out drums.
Rounding out the EP is some hometown love from Thievery Corporation's drummer Congo Sanchez and his reinterpretation of Sounds Of The Underground. Coming in at nearly eight full minutes, Congo Sanchez takes the listener on a sonic journey, which starts with some distorted basslines and heavy dub beats. About halfway through the track the tempo picks up, the horns kick in and the gypsy punk vibe of the original shines through, yet the twisted EDM synths and stabs keep the mystery going until the end.
The second volume of remixes from I Love You Madly offer a good mix of genres, sounds and moods – perfect for djs and music lovers alike. Black Masala has had a great time collaborating with all these great artists around the word to reinterpret our music and add their own influences. Coming soon will be I love You Madly Remixed Volume 3 with three more new remixes.
