Southern Freeez single – Sonzeira

sonzeira_brasil_bam_bam_bamThis might be a first: bossa nova meets jazz funk. UK DJ Gilles Peterson melded two of his passions to create this Brazilian reworking of Southern Freeez, originally recorded by UK jazz-funkers Freeez.

This Sonzeira version, which features Emanuelle Araújo on vocals, is taken from Mr Peterson’s forthcoming album, Sonzeira – Brasil Bam Bam Bam.

This track is available in limited-edition 7″ and digital download.

For those of a curious nature, a video of the original jazz-funk hit is also on this page.
