Bebel Gilberto is a vibrant link between bossa nova and contemporary electronica. She is the daughter of singer Miucha and legendary Brazilian crooner/guitarist Joao Gilberto, and performed for much of her life before releasing TANTO TEMPO (2000) and BEBEL GILBERTO (2004). Since Gilberto's silky, billowing voice lends itself not only to the seductive strains of bossa nova, but to the insistent beats and layered sonics of digitally tinged, contemporary production, it makes sense that she would be the perfect candidate for remix albums. (Her first remix collection, TANTO TEMPO REMIXES, was released in 2001.)
As the title implies, BEBEL GILBERTO REMIXED contains all the cuts from her eponymous sophomore release filtered through the imaginations of a host of international dance, hip-hop, and electronica producers. The album features high-profile talents like English down-beat mixer Tom Middleton, hip-hop DJ Spinna, and the trip-hop/lounge act Thievery Corporation, as well as lesser-known talents like NuSpirit Helsinki and Steve Hillier from Dubstar. No matter the mix-master, the 13 tracks here are captivating and quite beautiful, both in their rhythmic and sonic reinvention (by the guests) and the strength of the songs and performances (from Gilberto herself). This will please not only electronica, dance, and Latin jazz fans, but anyone with an ear for fresh, captivating music.
