Brazil's Barefoot Beats series returns, serving up fresh chunks of sticky dancefloor humidity from Ray Mang and label co-founder Carrot Green. Mang handles the A-side, making merry with layered, carnival-friendly drum rhythms, ghostly backing vocals, rhythmic samba guitars and a pulsating bassline. The veteran producer wisely emphasizes the intricate but heavy percussion throughout. On the flip, Rio De Janairo's own Carrot Green takes a different approach, expertly cutting ip a punchy, horn-heavy disco-funk number. It's naturally celebratory in mood, with the producer adding reverb and delay here to emphasize key vocal passages. Like the A-side, it's something of a floor-friendly thriller.
