Frankie Valentine


Sunshine Enterprises Mcon

Released: 9th April 2007 | 4 track ep
The fourth release out of Frankie´s full length album “World Of What“ features the tale of “Zumbi“ the slave. Zumbi was one of the last leaders of the Quilombo dos Palmeres. A Quilombo was a refuge of runaway slaves. The warriors became experts in capoeira, a martial arts form developed in Brazil by African slaves in the 1500s, due to forced defence against repeated attacks by Portuguese colonial power. Zumbi is still honoured by Afro-Brazilians today who celebrate him as a hero and a symbol of freedom. The 808-version of the album track “Zumbi†offers an unreleased mix by Frankie himself. It features the Bahia based singer Macaco and Vienna’s own Brazilian percussion wizard Fernando Paiva! To honor Zumbi´s tale, we’re grateful for the contribution of two of Europe’s finest producers. Berlin based Henrik Schwarz is a long-time aficionado of funk, house, disco, jazz, techno and soul. Exploring those musical forms and pushing the boundaries in between is his humble mission. His adventures into hi-fi are truly amazing and pure bliss. Once again he´s blessing a vinyl with an enormous remix-treatment! And last but not least…back by popular demand, Enrico Volcov! Milano’s soulbrother with the midas touch, known for his outstanding production-work on projects such as Rima or his current Isoul8 on Sonar Kollektiv, drops a deep and growing house-rework in approved manner.
