The Brazillian/South American dance music meme seems to be getting big this summer. If you go back and listen to the original version of “Tania,” released by Harry Choo Choo Romero, you might be surprised to realize how current it sounds. The groovy track with sexy beats, stuttered sampled vocals, and a Latino soul feel (like classic Masters at Work) would fit in any 2014 nu-house or deep house set. The song title comes from Brazilian artist Tania Maria, whose voice is sampled from her record “Made in New York.” ToolRoom reboots the track with new mixes by Filterheadz (tribal with a hint of electro), Purple Disco Machine (slowed-down tempo with a spaced-out feel and an addictive beat that both clashes and blends perfectly at the same time), and Riva Starr (keeping the basic feel of the original and speeding it up with a bit of a tasteful Klubbheads feel). All three remixes are quality and it will be interesting to see who they get for the part two package. Those who are enjoying the Fatboy Slim ‘Bem Brasil’ tracks should definitely check out “Tania” as well.
