Throwing Shade ups the potency of the Cuban singer's latest single.
Earlier this year, Cuban artist Daymé Arocena put out her debut album 'Nueva Era', which featured the fidgety rhythmic opener Madres. Since the release on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings, the track has been given a series of makeovers by Zepherin Saint and Ron Bassjam, as well as by Throwing Shade, whose revision (premiering below) completes a new EP for the track.
Throwing Shade's remix allows Arocena's multi-tracked vocals to take centre stage of her edit, adding kick drum and claps to the rich, heady brew of thumb piano, organ and percussive shakers. At one point, the track simmers and returns with a revitalised charge on Arocena's backed by jackhammering beats that up the song's potency without losing any of its finesse.
