Cuban born producer, musician and DJ WHEELER DEL TORRO, (aka DJ Kinfolks) follows his recent floor filler ‘If Only You Could See Me’ with a sunny, Latin drenched ‘Voce e Linda’, which, we’re reliably informed, means ‘You Are Beautiful’ in Portuguese. Remixed by Doug Gomez, the tune features a candy sweet vocal from Sidney Washington who also graced ‘If Only You Could See Me’. Latin guitars, insistent percussion, gentle shuffling, warm keys, a sunny vibe… for sophisticated rug, cutters what’s not to like?
Wheeler explains the provenance of the tune thus: “I was in school there was a cute girl in class that I had a crush on and I decided to ask her out, but she dissed me loud enough for the whole class to hear, that I “wasn’t her type”. It was humiliating. A friend overheard the exchange and said … “Wheeler, you are beautiful, don’t ever forget that. We say ‘voce e linda’ in Brazil and it means the same thing, You. Are. Beautiful. “Ever since that day, whenever I feel anxious, stressed, or out of place, I say that phrase to myself.’Voce e linda’. I wrote this song response to the recent events taking place in America. It’s an anthem of pride, a reminder that we all are beautiful“… can’t argue with that!
‘Voce e Linda’ (Doug Gomez Remix) is out now on Traxsource promo. Full release July 31st on Dog Day Recordings.
