For the fourth release of Hello Sailor Recordings, boss lady Renata do Valle curated the sounds of Fatnotronic and Joutro Mundo, two of Brazil’s major disco forces, to collaborate on the project, featuring edits from Gretchen “Super Sexy” and “Tudao” from Banda Black Rio. The new versions deliver a longer and punchier bass line and a groove that got extended to satisy our ears and resulting in a dance floor-minded record, faithful to its original brilliance.
