With Brazilian baile funk-bringers Bonde do Role having just made the jump from Diplo's Mad Decent label to Domino Records, the REMIXX is here. It has a more minimal backdrop, and plays up emphasis on the marching band horn blasts, twisting them into menacing air-raid sirens. Chants of "Afrika Bambaataa" anchor the track, spliced up and reassembled until they become a central element of the beat. It's Nice. Where the new meet the old.
