If you already own Tanto Tempo, consider Remixes an essential companion piece.
If you don’t – well, get off your skinny ass, hit the record store, and make a
much-needed investment in your aural health
Flaunt
A great album made even better... 9/10 stars!
Mixer
Tanto Tempo Remixes stands as a great example of integrating a classic sound
with tomorrow’s technology and creative minds.

The result is a consistency of style rare in the remix world, making this less
an overhaul than a most satisfying alternative version.

sambasoul 70! | various artists
compiler | Ziriguiboom | Crammed
In the 16 songs on this album, the results are nothing short of euphoric, as Carnaval revs up the sex machine and Superfly does the samba. Instrumentals take action-movie soundtracks on location to Rio , where the wah-wah meets the tambourine; songs mesh smooth Brazilian melody with pinpoint riffs.
The New York Times
This is the Album of the Summer.
