Con El Cielo En Tus Ojos (Fajra Fantasmo remikso) (4:53)
Atlantis (Jacques Renault edit) (8:14)
Corre Caminos (Marcel Vogel Happy edit) (6:21)
Review: Sonar Kollektiv has done an excellent job in re-introducing the world to the cosmic disco, jazz-funk and dusty grooves of Venezuelan producer Daniel Grau. As well as last year's timely career retrospective, The Magic Sound of Daniel Grau, they've also been releasing a steady stream of contemporary reinterpretations. There's plenty of killer material on this edit-heavy fourth 12" of reworks, with Mark E's chugging, loopy version of "Combination" arguably standing out. Jacques Renault and Marcel Vogel deliver deliciously celebratory scalpel versions of "Atlantis" and "Corre Caminos", while the little-known Fajra Fantasmo turns "Con El Cielo En Tus Ojos" into a stripped-back, organic house delight.
Review: Peace and football: not only the best compilation album title of 2006 (and possibly every year since) but also an immaculate collection of Brazilian folk, funk, disco and soul by Sonar Kollektiv champs Jazzanova. Ten years on and the SK dons are back with a second edition of Paz E Futbol, compiled with just as much care as an homage to football's spiritual home as that debut record. To adopt the football parlance, the band's digging duties score goal after goal after goal; the smoky Simoneisms of Ary Lobo, the heavenly vibraphonics of Skymark, the slippery time signature and almost cosmic bossa of Lucas Santana, the raw jazz soul of Nathan Haines, the list goes on. Peace out.
