A few days ago, I received an email that contained exciting music for my ears to be blessed with.  Timeless Remixes off the Timeless EP from Mochilla. While all of the tracks are wonderful, my fave are #2 and #4.

I’m not going to try to paraphrase the description of this project.  My tooth is literally giving me a headache and I’m afraid I would butcher what has already been wonderfully written.  Check the copy & paste below.

Tracklist:

Yekermo Sew (Te’Amir Remix) – Mulatu Astatke
Untitled/Fantastic (Georgia Anne Muldrow Remix) – Suite For Ma Dukes
Balada 45 (Jneiro Jarel Remix) – Arthur Verocai
The Radcliffe (King Britt Remix) – Mulatu Astatke
Fall In Love (Black Spade Remix) – Suite For Ma Dukes
Cabloclo (Mario C. & Joey A. Remix) – Arthur Verocai

Timeless was the live recording of the decade somehow. How else could this dream festival have happened–and have been recorded and filmed so beautifully. Now Timeless has been remixed. Six great producers across genres have taken a bite from each of the concerts and remade the magic.

The Remixers: 
Te’Amir, born in Los Angeles, of Ethiopian and Irish decent, grew up around art and music. He is new as an artist/producer but has been busy playing drums and percussion for several artists—Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme, Mayer Hawthorne & The County, SA-RA, Quadron and Mia Doi Todd just to name a few. Te’Amir’s first record is entitled “L.A. Soul” which was released to critical acclaim in 2011—his hotly anticipated follow up “Abyssinia” a journey into Ethiopian Soul will be completed soon. His remix brings Mulatu to Brasil by way of Jamaica.

Born to extraordinary musical parents in Los Angeles, Georgia Anne Muldrow surrounded by music of all types and origins. To this very day she carries the same spirit, making her instrumentation and songwriting so unique. She has worked with trailblazing artists such as Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Dudley Perkins, Madlib, M.E.D. , Prince Po and The Visionaries. Georgia is part of the new generation of musicians who can produce, sing and rap. She won the World Wide Music Awards Best Jazz Album of the year for her solo album Ocotea in 2011. When we asked her to remix Suite for Ma Dukes she told us “Im going to do it like I was sitting in that night with the Orchestra…” wow now we wish she was.

For over a decade, Jneiro Jarel (aka Dr. Who Dat?) has provided listeners with an unbelievably eclectic mix of sounds. Often being described as “experimental” and “psychedelic,” Jarel simply calls it “The Viberian Experience”, where various musical styles and influences have beautifully coalesced to become something all it’s own. With more monikers than Kool Keith, his collaborations and producer credits are almost too many to mention. Highlights include works with Khujo Goodie (as Willie Isz), DOOM, TV on the Radio, Massive Attack and many more. He is a huge fan of Arthur Verocai and his remix is an homage to Brasilian women.

King Britt has been breaking the traditional boundaries and forging a unique path as a producer, musician, DJ, label boss and media revolutionary for over 20 years. King is one of the world’s most respected remixers. He has added his unique touch to hugely diverse range of artists ranging from Miles Davis, The O’Jays and Curtis Mayfield through to Macy Gray, Solange, Femi Kuti and Everything But The Girl. King has also scored and underscored music for films, TV series and commercials (Miami Vice, Rolex, Mini, and True Blood) while in 2007 he became the first DJ to be awarded The Pew Fellowship – one of the most prestigious grants for creative arts in U.S. King is also a Creative Cultural Ambassador for his hometown of Philadelphia. King Britt’s vision of Mulatu involves the consumption of sacred herbs and lots of reverb.

Armed with his father’s extensive record collection of jazz, soul, psychedelic rock, folk, comedy and a Kurzweil 2000 keyboard, Black Spade creates music that is a melting pot of sounds and influences. Despite his strong ties to hip-hop, Black Spade’s tastes in music travel across genres and galaxies. Black Spade is a rare emcee that produces music under the alias Stoney Rock. It must be mentioned that he can sing too. Blake Spade has worked with music legends such as The Mizell Brothers, Steve Spacek andMark Pritchard. Black Spade’s remix is a vocal version of “Fall in Love” from the Suite for Ma Dukes EP.

Mario C is a super-producer. His early days were spent soaking up the wide musical spectrum of Gardenia, California. He was the go to engineer and producer on all the classic Delicious Vinyl hits for Tone-Loc and Young MC. He came to world prominence as the man who helped create the Beastie Boys sound from Paul’s Boutique to Hello Nasty. From there Mario has built a career helping people find their sound. He has produced records with Manu Chao, Seu Jorge, Marcello D2, Jack Johnson, Sly and Robbie, One Day as a Lion, Marisa Monte and Super Furry Animals among many others. He has remixed such giants as Quincy Jones, Bjork, Fela, John Lee Hooker and now Arthur Verocai. His remix of Caboclo re-imagines Timeless as if it was recorded in 1972.
