Following last month's inaugural installment from Desert Trax, the world and electronic music label releases yet another star-studded line-up of producers re-imagining the rich compositions of World Soul artist, Porangui Carvalho McGrew.
This latest installment opens with famed English producer, El Búho, whose Latin American folk and cumbia-inspired take on 'Danza del Viento' absolutely lifts the Spirit. Both Momentology and DJ Taz Rashid have been on a hot streak, pairing up for a number of releases on Desert Dwellers' label, but this time the pair aim for a Latin-focused, earthy remix of 'Canto de la Selva.' Coming off a massive Desert Trax release earlier this summer in Apu, duo Jakare (Italian producers Halfred and Lo.Renzo) bring their South American slow house sound to Porangui's 'Otorongo'.
Newcomers to the label Ryan Herr, Walkerji, and Baptiste Sejourne are joined by returning favorites Moon Frog, Ancestral Elephants, and Erothyme. Once again one of the label's most prolific artists, Porangui, has woven together a powerful constellation of talent to interpret these potent medicine songs.
Porangui Remixes Vol II is out on Desert Trax August 16th.
