'Quero Mais' is Lua Preta's latest single that has also become their biggest hit up to date. Featuring the ever-fresh intercontinental production from Mentalcut that bridges Africa and Europe, Ms. Gia's bold rapping verses and the guest vocal appearance from the one and only Morena Leraba from Lesotho, the song quickly caught attention of both the press and DJs all around the world.
The concept of a remix EP seemed irresistible and the result comes in a form of 'Quero Mais Remixes EP' which brings four reworks from top players in the game. The journey starts with Jowaa - the Accra-based duo consisting of Benjamin Lebrave, head of Akwaaba Music, and Gafacci, one of the most promising African producers of his generation - who have just followed their last year's killer singles with a releae of 'Asokpor 1.0 EP'. Next up is Ugandan dancer and producer Faizal Ddamba Mostrixx whose 2017's 'Tribal Match' was one of the most valuable albums in the continent's electronic music scene and definitely one of the most important debuts.
Then European producers come into play. Italy's Lorenzo_BITW who famously collaborated with Mina on a perfect jam 'Tombura' few years ago, now polished 'Quero Mais' into a lovely laid back tune just as he prepares for the release of his debut album out in June on Friends on Friends label. The last track hides a real gem created by the exceptional mind of Rafael Aragon who transferred the original song to another universe by producing a moody and psychedelic composition that captivates the listener in every single second over its seven-and-a-half minutes duration.
Amazing album produced by a mysterious Polish duo RSS B0YS with the use of field recordings made in Brazil. An absolute standout from the album is a finishing track - a true masterpiece. Basy Tropikalne
