perfecto. (ft. Daniela Andrade) – ayo. + disfnk

January 29, 2016

Daniela Andrade

Here’s a good one. It’s a short one but it’s too perfect not to share. Cousins ayo. and .disfnk collaborated to chop and screw this cover of Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie” by Daniela Andrade. The cover is a simple one; acoustic guitar and sweet soft vocals. The remix is another matter, featuring trap rhythms, downtempo, and layered synth lines. Added reverb and distance to the voice gives the song a dreamy feel while the acoustic guitar seems somehow fogged by time. When brought to the fore of the remix the guitar becomes an accent to the rhythm, a flare of attitude. It’s a complex song for all that it’s not even two minutes long. As my grandfather would have said, “It’s wonderful, what there was of it.”
