Leandro P. feat. Daniel Reis On Keys - African Seed (Nylon Trax)

Nylon Trax is pleased to present “African Seed,” its first single from the Sao Paulo-based DJ Leandro P., joined on keys by Daniel Reis. Leandro P. (given name: Leandro Pereira) is a staple of the Brazilian deep house scene, DJ’ing at renowned club events like Deep Soul Sessions, Ritual House, and Grooveland Party as well as broadcasting his weekly Ritual House Sessions radio show on Discotheque Radio. His sets are known for blending all the possibilities of rhythmic electronic beats, melodies and vocals with sprinkles of jazz, soul, afrobeat, and disco while keeping the vibe deep. “African Seed” introduces Leandro P.‘s talent like a fifty foot wave on our shores with its soulful, percussive feel and enticingly exotic overtones. The “African Seed” refers to Africa as the cradle of civilization, its seed spawning all of us. This heavy thought comes through in the track’s pensive atmosphere, carefully layered pads, and Daniel Reis’ melodic keyboard embellishments. Reis comes through with more prominence in the Organ Mix which features a delightful solo running over the cut’s heartbeat.

Jaymz Nylon delivers the first of a pair of remixes, not only accentuating the beats through his distinctive ‘afro-tech’ rhythm programming, but also accentuating the song’s message with an added spoken vocal. Indeed, Jaymz Nylon could not simply remix the track, but also lent his butter baritone voice and djembe, turning this already great tune into an epic one. The second remix is courtesy of Old Man Yellow, a bright new talent coming out of the Emerald City of Seattle. This evocative version rounds out the project with solid, late night floor flavor, a dirty kick, sophisticated keys, and a deep and sensual bass line. It’s another top notch release from the trusted tastemakers at Nylon Trax, and just the first offering planned with the promising Leandro P.
