Oribata & Banda De Pifanos De Caruaru


Tiff's Joints

Released: 25th November 2016 | 2 track brazil single

Tiff's Joints launches into the ether with two Afro-Brazilian dancefloor cuts.

The A-side, Batuki is an Afro-Brazilian house jam from Sao Paolo production duo Oribata, consisting of DJ Tahira & Fernando TRZ. Tahira has been a fixture on the Sao Paolo scene since the late '90's, gaining recognition both in Brazil and abroad for being one of the most knowledgable DJs on Afro-Brazilian music. His edits of classics like Gilberto Gil's Toda Menina Baiana getting heavy airplay from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Francois K and Nightmares on Wax and the seal of approval from Gilberto Gil himself. Fernando TRZ is a musician, arranger and producer, most famous for his work with TRZ trio and Lavoura, and counts Marc de Clive-Lowe and Eumir Deodato amongst fans of his music.

The B-side is a DJ Tahira edit of Cavalinho Cavalao by hugely influential forro group Banda de Pifanos de Caruaru. Originally formed in the 1920's, Banda de Pifanos de Caruaru are widely credited with bringing Afro-Brazilian to main stream audiences in Brazil, playing on albums be artists like Jorge Ben. Tahira whips the drums and flutes of Cavalinho Cavalao into a galloping frenzy.

TJ001 has clocked plays and support from the likes of Gilles Peterson on BCC 6 Music, Jon K, Optimo and more.

"DJ Tahira from Brazil probably does the best re-edits of Brazilian classics."
Gilles Peterson, BBC Radio 6
"Mad! I'll get some use out of that!"
Jon K, Hoya:Hoya
"The remix by DJ Tahira of “Cavalinha Cavalao” by Banda de Pifanos de Caruaru, though, is the one that’s going to get attention. Running at a maniacal tempo, it shows how just drums and flutes alone can be as alien, as crazed and as head-melting as any techno wizardry."
Joe Muggs, The Guardian/FACT
"Conjuring scenes of a fierce marching samba line filled with bass rich surdos, frenzy stirring timbale drums and metronomic cymbals, Tahira’s edit pulls no punches. Perfect for those who want to move."
Andrew Mensah, Stamp The Wax
"Batuki is song of the year contender. I've played it out at every opportunity since I got it, and it doesn't fail."
Gabriel Szatan, Boiler Room
"Yes this is the shit."
Addison Groove, Addison Groove
"Batuki for me...will support"
Harri, Sub Club
"Already been playing and loving this. Pure club heat!"
Dom Servini, Wah-Wah 45s
