Release Info

With its memorable combination of tribal beats, crystalline breaks, melodic vibraphone motifs and blasts of brass, Freedom Satellite ’s “Soul Samba” became a full-on club hit in 2000. Motivated by the interest expressed by various producers and the desire to work with like-minded musicians, Freedom Satellite producers Gernot Ebenlechner and Jürgen Drimal decided to get on the case and unleash their remix project. The first in a series of three 12" singles is now available and the second and third has been released in May 2001.

Track Infos

A1 Freedom Satellite Soul Samba (The Menheads Head Mix) [4:41]

"Blaxploitation meets electro-brazilian-boogie" could be the motto of the Menheads energetic "Soul Samba - Headmix" . Ever since their foundation in 1997, producerduo Marcello Armetta and Michael Hirschler have pursued a distinctive mixture of funky bass-lines, latin rhythms and jazzy breaks (provided by some of the finest studio musicans in Vienna). Their jazzy downtempo 12" "La Politique" earned them a reputation as groove aficiandos in 2000.

A2 Freedom Satellite — Soul Samba (Max Schneider Remix) [6:25]

For three consecutive years multiinstrumentalist Max Schneider has released several formidable 12"s on the German Infracom Label. Although his long-awaited album is still in the lab, the Schneider remix of "Soul Samba" gives you an idea of things to come. Based on abstract drum & percussion loops, Schneider transforms "Soul Samba" into a hypnotic, soulful electro meltdown. Sublime vocal support comes by way of Patricia Kamden.

B1 Freedom Satellite Soul Samba (Aromabar Club Mix) [6:57]

On their first "Soul Samba - Remix" Aromabar present themselves in a deep Brazilian mood. A fine bass-driven groove, lyrical bossa guitars and tight percussion blend into an extremly relaxed lounge track. Latin Chill deluxe.

B2 Freedom Satellite Soul Samba (Aromabar Open Air Mix) [6:47]

Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut "1" (Infracom) Aromabar masterminds Roland Hackl and Andreas Kinzl have developed a widespread reputation for distinctive borderline productions.Their smooth elegant sounds could be described as "pop couture" – an eclectic mixture of contemporary electronic sounds and classic pop. "Soul Samba – Open Air Mix" distinguishes itself with floating harmony structures, based on a pop beat with a "housy" feel, providing us with a short preview of their upcoming second LP.
