2002 release. Far Out Recordings brings together some of the best producer/remixers world-wide to create a concept album inspired by the music of the highly acclaimed percussive collective Grupo Batuque. The collaborators decided to put together an album of cutting-edge tracks influenced by the passion of samba to take a contemporary look at the work of Grupo Batuque that is perfect for the club and home listening. Grupo Batuque's work has been massively sampled over the years to create some hugely successful tracks and this diverse album pays homage to their music. This album includes Jamie Anderson's "Do Anything" and the anthemic "Between The Lines", already a club classic and now blowing up dancefloors on 12" with a fresh remix from Big Bang. 4Hero's exclusive track "The Samba" brings uplifting vibes influenced by their dynamic Afro-percussive beats and samba rhythms. Fauna Flash's slamming bassline on the version of "Ole Ola", originally from the Samba de Futebol (1998), will get you in the mood for World Cup fever. From the same album, Zero dB takes the frenetic rhythms to the ecstatic climax of the pulsating carnival. Masters At Work pick up the Afro-beat influence on samba with their reworking of "Keyzer" dedicated to Brazilian funk group Banda Black Rio and Fela Kuti, from the Grammy nominated album Africa Brazil (FARO 040CD, 2000). There are also groundbreaking mixes from Da Lata, Osunlade, Viper Squad and Roc Hunter. Rhythmix, with the blistering beats of the streets, is guaranteed to shake up dancefloors globally but is also perfect for a lounging cocktail party.
