Following the release of her debut album Maleducada (2017) and captivating international performances in Europe (“Amsterdam Dance Event”, Paris, Madrid), Latin America (“Hermoso Ruido”- Colombia, “Frecuencias” - Chile) plus a recent opening slot for Ibeyi in Buenos Aires - ZZK’s first-lady of beat-making Dat Garcia’s single Anfibio (Amphibium) is given a sultry remix by New York City based Space People, oozing with jazz-inflected beats that sounds like the marriage between the Los Angeles beats scene with NYC hip hop swagger and soul.
Space People’s career as a collaborator has been unusually fruitful, maintaining a decade-long partnership with songwriter Gabriel Garzón-Montano with several releases to date, most recently his remix of Mayer Hawthorne's "Lingerie & Candlewax", his track "Wet" was reworked with a guest verse by Nasty Nigel, and he's garnered critical acclaim for his production work on Chi'ren, (2016) EP from fellow Styles artists Quincy Vidal. Most recently, he served as music director for the debut live performance of Latasha Alcindor’s ‘All A Dream’ at Brooklyn Museum. And now gives us a spin to these Argentine digital folklore sounds from this eclectic songstress.
As Dat Garcia prepares for her 1st USA tour coming up this summer, the 2nd remix from her Maleducada Remixes Vol. 2 drops on April 13th by Wil Dog from Ozomatli. Formed in 1995, Ozomatli are the globally renowned and pioneering band from Los Angeles that combine Latin grooves with hip-hop and rock. Wil Dog provides a remix that combines the bounce of Miami bass with a darker edge that hints at Detroit's ghettotech scene, replete with rumbling jungle drums. A midway refrain sees the track descend into an irresistible electro dancehall groove to complete the remix.
