Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike team up with Diplo & Fatboy Slim for impending World Cup anthem ‘Eparrei’
Seldom forgotten for its natural radiance, Brazil didn’t need the world cup knocking on its doorstep to shine as a nation of natural energy and breathtaking beauty. In a bid to give the soundtrack to the world cup its dance floor worthy edge, fast ascending Belgian powerhouse Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike assemble alongside Diplo and Fatboy Slim for a collaboration connecting cultural dots from across the cream of the modern dance crop.
Borrowing heavily from Diplo’s penchant for brining exotic stimulus onto the modern dance floor, the inclusion of national treasures Bonde Do Role & Pin gives the track an authentic Brazilian edge. It’s “Funk Carioca” with an unprecedented twist, tapping the production values of this stronghold of talents and the exotic undertones of Brazilian culture in a dignified and delightfully energetic track. Just a stone throw from one of soccer’s key calendar marks, “Eparrei” proves one of the more versatile examples of dance music making vast and exciting cultural leaps away from the club floor.
