UrbanWorld Records and Al Lindrum proudly present Ojos de Brujo Reworked, a remix compilation of the music of Grammy award-winning, Spanish flamenco-fusion group, Ojos de Brujo.

Throughout the last 10 years, Ojos de Brujod has represented the freshest fusion of flamenco and urban music. By staying true to their Catalan roots, they successfully merge past and present to create a unique sound. It was a difficult job selecting only five tracks from their immense and amazing back-catalog, but we think you will agree with us that the following are some of Ojos de Brujod best works: Ventilaor R-80 (Bari, 2002), Sultanas de Merkadillo (Techari, 2006), Todo Tiende (Techari, 2006), Una Verdad Incómoda (Aocana, 2009) and Nueva Vida (Aocana, 2009).

UrbanWorld Records and Al Lindrum have spent over a year working one this project. Al who has Danish roots but lived more than half of his life in the Catalan capital is friend of both Ojos and UrbanWorld, thus combining them on this compilation was just waiting to happen. Al Lindrum is a well-known DJ on the global bass scene and is producing a number of projects, featured here as Al Lindrum with a mellow drum&bass remix that tastes of exotic, spicy but still sweet. And as LoveAvalanche with a powerful remix ripping it up in a dubstep/ragga style with a breakdown that will get most dance floors jumping.

Thirteen remixes from top producers take Ojos De Brujo from dub-step and drum & bass, over cumbia and dancehall, to house stompers and funky breaks, incorporating the unique freshness and global-bass sound that has put UrbanWorld Records on the international scene. Junkyard Productions have given Una Verdad Incómoda their hallmark sound, based on classic dub and roots reggae. Makala added extra double-bass and piano on his amazing rhumba version of Ventilaor R-80. Copia Doble Systema smashes it with their electro-cumbiaton version of Ventilaor R-80. Los Chicos Altos honor us with a nice layback funky version of Todo Tiende. DJ Farrapo cooked up an organic funky house version of Sultanas De Merkadillo. George Vala & Audioprophecy created an epic house version Todo Tiende, which is sure to blow up dancefloors. Thykier & Dubpiraten’s mutual passion for bass-heavy urban sounds is heard throughout their remix of Sultanas De Merkadillo. Suonho shows why he was selected to work with Giles Peterson and DJ Shadow with his broken version of Ventilaor R-80. Duboffensive flips Una Verdad Incomoda into a fresh drum&bass tune. Tony Seal gives us a stomping house version of Nueva Vida that is sure to rock the casbah. And rounding off is the Empresarios with an electro cumbia take on Ventilaor R-80.

Epic track ‘Pretty Cliche’ from the WARA EP on Movimientos Records has made its mark as a live favourite and as one of the first tracks ever to blend Cumbia with Cuban Timba and Hip Hop – a true Latin-London style mash up!! Both our remixers bring their own unmistakeable dancefloor sensibility to proceedings with Makala giving it a Cumbia-Moombahton type treatment and Palov infusing the track with big Afro-dancehall bounce.

The Remixers:

MAKALA

A prolific DJ, musician, producer and remixer who’s been on the scene for two decades, playing massive clubs and festivals across Europe. A stalwart of the ever excellent Lovemonk Records with several releases and a recent album, ‘Unexpected Tapas’, on the label. Makala also hosts monthly Global Funk Parties in his local Basque Country with the likes of Alice Russell & TM Juke, Nickodemus, & Daniel Haaksman. His production styles veer from Spanish rumba beats, gypsy swing, funk and jazz to more tropical sounds like latin, boogaloo, cumbia and ska, seamlessly combined with modern electronics.

PALOV

With a style that blends latin flavours, block breaks, exotic soul, cumbia, swing and tropicalismo, Palov’s reputation continues to soar following a highly acclaimed series of E.P releases with his partner Mishkin (as production duo Palov & Mishkin) for labels like Gamm, Resence, Scribble, Rebtuz. He’s also remixed for The Hot 8 Brass Band and Lovemonk’s Más Achilifunk – Gipsy Soul From 21st Century. He recently launched his own label Carnibal bringing more funky tropical beats and mash ups.
