Da Lata

Led by DJ Patrick Forge (Kiss FM/Dingwalls) and Chris Franck (Smoke City/Zeep), Da Lata have consistently questioned the conventional map of Brazilian music, redefining and remoulding traditional music with a pioneering aesthetic and energy guided by UK club culture and their worldwide family of collaborators.

One of my all time favorite groups. Patrick Forge, Christian Franck and Liliana Chachian are the core three along with Ollie Saville. WHen you look at the musicians, that's half the fun. There's like a six degrees of separation. Ollie Saville connects to Patrick Forge from the group "Batu", Da Lata connects with the group "Smoke City" thanks to Christian Franck and Nina Miranda. Da Lata connects to KV:5, who connects to Smoke City because of Marc Brown, and Da Lata did a remix of a KV:5 cut "Lies & Untruths" on the Da Lata Re-Mix album.

About Da Lata - they are a very talented group, and I cannot wait for them to come out with a new release. They focus on a more cultural and traditional side of Brazilian music, featuring samba, bossa and mixed/produced superbly by Patrick Forge with fresh new sounds and samples. Great percussion beats, a rich sounding and powerful vocalist in Liliana, and a master guitar player in Christian Franck. I recommend this album. Especially if you're a Smoke City fan.
