For Quilombo do Futuro Remixed, Maga Bo called upon the talents of a select team of top notch producers haling from several different continents. The original tracks united the organic subtleties of the Afro-Brazilian rhythms coco, maculelê, samba, gong and capoeira with the punchy, powerful, electronic based sounds of dub, raga, hip hop and dubstep. Batucada and bass, mids, treble. TUDO. The remixes take the tracks even further….
Frikstailers deliver a monster digital cumbia remix. Uproot Andy comes with a crunk, bullerengue samba reggae. Subatomic Sound System brings a hypnotic dub rework. Stereotyp’s remix is spooky, frantic burst of barefoot energy. El Remolon takes baile funk into trance cumbia dub territory. Sabo brings a sunny, uplifting vibe for the dance floor. Dr. Das injects noise and grit with a deep, deep bassline. Process Rebel treats coco to warm distortion and spacious reverb. Dub Gabriel offsets hard, one-drop dub and samba with political commentary on immigration. Digitaldubs drops a raw, dirty bass and rapid-fire funk programming. DJ Dolores’ new project Stank, comes with a dubbed out samba reggae. Poirier goes deep on his tranced out jongo rework. Batida connects the dots between samba and kuduro with vocals straight from Angolan MC Sacerdote.
A quilombo was an autonomous, fugitive settlement founded by ex-slaves and others in colonial brazil. The Quilombo do Futuro is more than a possible physical space. It is a potential world-wide agglomeration of cultural resistance. After centuries of wealth generated by an economy built on slavery (and the subsequent post-abolition adaptations), the Quilombo do Futuro is a break from this legacy. Fortified by an international community based on plurality, inclusive democracy and direct communication, cultural resistance is paramount in creating a sustainable, healthy existence in the face of world-wide corporate domination.
