I love listening to unusual remixes of well-known songs, and lately, I’ve been put in contact with Jaloo, a producer from Belém do Pará, Brazil, who makes interesting mish-mashes of pop songs with the new latest rhythms from the north of Brazil, called tecnobrega. On his Soundcloud page, you can find nice versions of Rihanna, Adele, Amy Winehouse and Gotye’s songs, with the funky touch of this recently discovered Brazilian ritmo caliente.
