Inside every modern production duo, there's one that's a better producer and the other who's the better PR. Let's just say that Database is at the moment exploring both sides to the maximum with the second edition of their Uglyedits compilation. Almost every single band or producer who is checkworthy on the Brazilian scene - and also the American duo French Horn Rebellion - have reinterpreted old songs using elements extracted from the original MP3s alongside lots of editing to make the track their own; or have simply just covered it oldschool.
Highlights come from the clash of Copacabana Club versus Our Gang in the cover of La Bionda's 'I Wanna Be Your Lover', The Twelves covering Daft Punk's 'Nightvision', Roots Rock Revolution accelerating the forgotten anthem of Nu Shooz, 'I Can't Wait', and many many many more - as the list of the features continues with Edu k, Superpose, Dada attack, Killer on the Dancefloor, Allan Falkyn, Nando Feitosa, Midnight Martyn, Pelussje & Blood Shake, The Random, Terrorduo, Sexistalk, Dubstrong (2Crazy Deadman), Mono-4, Discobot, Mottorama, Fisk, Digitaria and Chernobyl. Oh, and let's not forget Database with 13 (!) Uglyedits!
From where the Brazilian scene stands now, this release is going to be much better than the first volume. If you like to rock the party, Database is inviting everyone to the release party tomorrow (19th of May) at São Paulo's D-Edge and, of course, urge you to check their Myspace on the 25th of May to listen to all the songs and download them for free.
Meanwhile check the awesome teaser that the boys prepared below and two exclusivity Uglyedits. Database's edit of Dc Larue's 'Cathedrals' is like making love to your ears and as everybody knows you can't go wrong with The Jackson Five, the French Horn Rebellion contribute their groovy lines to the compilation. There is nothing ugly about these edits.
