Eden Prince amazing remix of Basement Jaxx’s “Mermaid of Bahia”
It’s one of the first releases from Michael Brun’s new label Kid Coconut, and Eden Prince has unveiled a wonderful bit of dance music. Basement Jaxx did their own Brazillian-twinged rework, “Mermaid of Bahia”, in honor of the World Cup last year, and now Eden Price puts forth this big-room take that retains the lively spirit of the original but makes it more accessible for certain clubs.
He puts a electro house vibe on the Basement Jaxx original, by turning up the energy and lacing it with clean synthesizers. Eden’s take speeds the track up to a nu-age progressive house pace, however, the soul of the tune has been relatively untouched.
This remix shows a strong ability to live between styles of house. It’s apparently Eden Prince’s first track so we’ll see what more Eden Prince has in store in the future. Well, remixing Basement Jaxx is quite the way to start. This tune is huge and perfect to party this weekend.
