Cesaria Evora

Club sodade

 

With several million albums sold throughout the world, two Victoire de la Musique award and one Grammy Award ®, the Cape Verdean diva's influence now reaches well beyond the sphere of World Music. Cesaria Evora moves listeners with her grace and simplicity, her ability to reach their inner world and the inspiration she encourages. In fact, inspiration is probably the right word to describe the feelings of house artists fascinated by the Barefoot Diva's music. For Carl Craig, Osunlade, Kerri Chandler and Pépé Bradock, apart from the hedonism of the house (club) scene, Cesaria Evora's music undoubtedly suggests its inseparable melancholy (sodade). Brilliantly orchestrated by Gilb'R (producer / DJ / seminal courier of the French electronic scene), “Club Sodade” invites the cream of contemporary house producers to a choice banquet where the menu consists of covers of the Cape Verdean diva's now classic songs, more or less true to the originals. Apart from its pleasantly surprising aspect, the album represents the successful collision of two worlds, two ways of looking at music and fun. The sad languor of Cesaria's singing and her unique voice are confronted by productions whose identities spring from soul and disco. The combination should help to broaden our auditory tastes. To put it more simply, Club Sodade is the soundtrack for a summer we hope will last forever.

 

 

THE CAST

 

Château flight 

(remixed track: Petit Pays from the album Cesaria , 1995)

Behind the pseudonym “Château flight” stand Gilb'R, the brains of the Versatile label, and I:Cube, a French producer whose youth is rivalled only by the respect he enjoys on the international electronic scene. I:Cube has made two albums for Versatile and Château flight released a first album,  Puzzle, to universal acclaim last year. Since then, the duo has produced one remix after another: Brandy, Seiji, AtJazz, Bebel Giberto, Serge Gainsbourg…

 

Carl Craig 

(remixed track: Angola from the album Miss Perfumado, 1992)

While Kerri Chandler is a star of New York house, Carl Craig is a legend of the more melancholic Detroit house. Directly influenced by jazz, Carl Craig's music moves from house to techno to hybrid jazz, defying any attempt to label it. Carl Craig proved his affection for jazz with the Innerzone Orchestra project on Talkin' Loud a few years ago and released the especially memorable albums More songs about food and revolutionary art on SSR in 1997 and Landcruising in the early 90s. In tribute to Cesaria, our man has returned to his first love, the dance floor.

 

Kerri Chandler

(remixed track: Nutridinha from the album Sâo Vicente di longe, 2001 & Nho Antone Escaderode from the album Café Atlantico, 1999).

What can you say about Kerri Chandler, except that this musician from New Jersey is one of the ten most important house producers in the world? Along with Moodymann, Ron Trent and Masters At Work, Kerri Chandler has helped to turn house music into the soul of the 3rd millennium. Apart from the countless house, deep and garage maxis that the man has produced, he has also released two superb and particularly memorable albums: Saturday with Jérôme Seydenham on Ibadan and Kaoz on King St. on King Street.

 

Señor Coconut 

(remixed track: Besame Mucho from Best Of Cesaria Evora, 1998 ).

German producer Uwe Schmidt launches projects and adopts aliases at the speed of light: Atom Heart, Erik Satin for lounge, Geez'n'Gosh for minimal house on Force Inc, Flanger with Burnt Friedmann on NTone and many others. Two years ago, Uwe Schmidt remixed Kraftwerk in Latin style under the name of Señor Coconut. The Latin lover in exile in Santiago, Chile, could not resist the idea of a remix for the great Cesaria.

 

Osunlade 

(remixed track: Bondade e Maldade from the album Sâo Vicente di longe, 2001)

A highly respected American producer, founder of the Yoruba Records label, Osunlade embodies contemporary black music, releasing house underground maxis while producing million-selling soul records (Musiq Soulchild). His first album, Paradigm, was released last year on English label Soul Jazz, signing its first contemporary artist. Onsulade has also made remixes for Spacek, Zero 7, John Cutler and Incognito.

 

DJ Rork & Demon Ritchie

(remixed track: Sodade from the album Miss Perfumado, 1992)

Rork is one of the first Parisian DJs to play house in its most “soul”, hedonistic dimension. After years spent at the decks, Rork founded the Soldiers of Twilight, a project he worked on at the now legendary Batofar “afters”. It is certainly because Rork always focuses on the organic aspect of his music that he works with saxophonist Demon Ritchie, a Stakhanovite of live improvisation.

 

Cris Prolific

(remixed track: Negue from the album Sâo Vicente di longe, 2001)

Not widely known to the general public despite a few remixes for American stars such as The Roots, Cris Prolific should soon make a name for himself. The producer from the French hip-hop scene is working with Jayhem (Kojak) on an album with Creole influences under the alias Kemit Sources for Versatile.

 

4 Hero

(remixed track: Miss Perfumado from the album Miss Perfumado, 1992).

Pioneers of the Jungle / Drum'n'bass genre, Dego and Marc Mac have endless aliases (Tek 9, Jacob's Optical Stairway, Nu-Era) and have constantly broadened their field of investigation. The album Two Pages, released on Talkin Loud, forcefully proclaimed 4 Hero's affection for jazz and soul, a passion they continue to express in their work with the London broken beat / nujazz  scene (Seiji, Atjazz, Alex Attias). Dego is also the founder of the 2000 Black label.

 

Pépé Bradock

(remixed track: Angola from the album Miss Perfumado, 1992)

This is the French producer that everyone is talking about... Even with just a few maxis (Kif, Versatile) and remixes (Cassius, Iz & Diz, Blaze) noticed by the cream of house producers worldwide, the Pépé Bradock hype is justified. Monsieur Bradock produces efficient but far-from-sanitised house for the dance floor, while addressing the senses with highly memorable sounds. Pépé Bradock now releases his productions - including his recently-released first album - on his own label, Atavisme. Apart from his club mix of “Angola”, this golden boy has come up with a dub version as smoky as the cigarettes the Barefoot Diva particularly enjoys.

 

François K

(remixed track: Sangue de Beirona from the album Cabo Verde, 1997).

This French native of Rodez is a legend of American dance music. Kraftwerk remixer, Depeche Mode producer, founder of the Wave label and New York's famous Body and Soul nights along with Joe Claussel, more than anyone, François Kervorkian embodies the soul / disco / house relationship. This remix was already released back in 1997 and was the first major success of what might be called “world-mix”.  The track now enjoys cult status and has been compiled many times. The remix has been hard to find and makes a great ending for this project.
