Perhaps, after finally nabbing the Grammy in 2004 following five previous at-bats, Cape Verdean star Cesaria hit the clubs. If so, the result may have sounded something like this refreshingly varied set of remixes. Two of the biggest DJ names here - Carl Craig and Francois K - turn in thumpin' house mixes of Cesaria's music. Craig's is worked around the handclaps in "Angola" (one of three versions of the song from 1992's Miss Perfumado), while Francois K goes straight for the soul in "Sangue de Beirona," which was a favorite in his set at New York's storied deep-house haunt, Shelter. But there are other flavors here. German Latinophile Señor Coconut takes Cesaria's version of "Bésame Mucho" to its logical end, with a cha-cha-chá remix that punches up the Latin rhythm with plenty of Perez Prado grunts and trumpet blasts. The U.K. drum 'n' bass duo 4 Hero in their future-jazz incarnation submit a dreamy version of "Miss Perfumado" that ripples with electric piano and organ, a perfect companion the dubby deconstruction of "Angola" by Pepe Bradock. Eight more stylish versions of Cesaria's exquisitely melancholic music await. While none have all that much in common with the grandmotherly singer, fans of left-of-center electronica will want to check this club out.
