The batucada-influenced tune „Favela Gyal“ is a hot dancehall riddim with U.K. MC Coppa (who has played alongside the likes of Roni Size & Dynamite, Adam F, Marcus Intalex, the G-Stoneposse and many others).
It´s the second release from 7 Samurai´s „El Mundo Nuevo“ album – a great mixture of soul, latin, brasil, jazz, swing, reggae, dub, dancehall and hip hop that sounds fresh and funky beyond the ordinary!
“El Mundo Nuevo“ is a killer collection of tracks, collaborations and outstanding remixes by 7 Samurai. The album includes their mix for the rare Jorge Ben joint „Sou da pesada“, the unreleased remix for the latin-lounge don´s Mo’Horizons and further contributions by Desmond Foster, Janko Nilovic and Alessao Vilhosso
On the flipside, Zero Cash delivers a bombastic and ecstatic remix that turns the track into a funky electro tune with a great break… hands up for this! Zero Cash aka Fabian Stall releases on his own label Television Rocks (that he runs with Maral Salmasi) and his tunes are played by the likes of Erol Alkan, Tiga, Boris Dlugosch or Malente.
