Only out for 2 weeks and ’Brazuca’ is 2nd best seller in the Juno’s broken beat charts this week!!!!
There’s eight million stories in New York City, and if you’re in the know, there’s a refreshing movement of bodies several stories above the Manhattan street bars and clubs in secret lofts and apartments. One of these reoccurring parties is Roland’s Six Degrees, with Sid Vaga providing the sonic backbone. After over ten years of heavy dance-floor smashing, Sid steps into the studio to make some of his own sounds, presented here via Nickodemus‘ Wonderwheel Recordings.
Starting as a music lover in his native Paris, 1999 is the year Sid Vaga took control of the turntables. Since then, he’s played in lounges, clubs and hotels all over the Americas (North, Latin, and South). Sid has DJ’ed aside many renown DJ’s and friends like Roy Davis Jr., Nickodemus, Ursula 1000, Matthias Heilbronn, Mr V, Rich Medina, and Gilles Peterson (during an underground set at the Getdown Party III).
An underground house head with years of experience under his belt, Sid Vaga just keeps on getting better. “Brazuca” sees Vaga showcasing his Latin/Brazilian influences to the max as a deep double bassline and cumbia-esque percussion leads into a blistering deep house groove that’s kept masterfully airy and light yet hypnotic and engrossing at the same time. An accompanying mix by D*Sol gets deeper and lets live brass, flute and guitar playing dominate the mix. A treat for fans of modern Latin-tinged brilliance.
