Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Bebel Gilberto's acclaimed album Tanto Tempo is the source for this collection of remixes – ranging from downtempo to danceable – by some of today's most groundbreaking producers, including Peter Kruder (of Kruder & Dorfmeister), Trüby Trio, Rae & Christian, King Britt, Faze Action, 4hero and more.

Bebel Gilberto appears to be the figurehead of 21st-century bossa nova, so it's only fitting she should be the subject of one of the biggest 21st-century trends, the remix. But when the remixes are done as well as this, it actually adds to the original album. Her languid, sensual vocals are still the cornerstone, but Rae & Christian's more upbeat take on "Bananeira" propels the song to the dance floor, while Trüby Trio evoke the shantytown favelas, home of samba, on the percussive "Sem Contencao." A couple of the tracks might seem more like limp Sade than tropical Bebel, but for the most part there's plenty of invention occurring, as with Da Lata's gorgeous interpretation of "August Day Song." In addition to all of the aforementioned, King Britt, Ananda Project, and 4hero are among the studio whizzes who lend their high-profile talents to Gilberto, making Tanto Tempo into something reborn. --Chris Nickson

Another reviewer criticized that the remixes paid too much respect to the originals. If you are considering purchasing this set of remixes from Bebel's wonderful TANTO TEMPO album, this is a key point to consider. If you are looking for radical revisions of the tunes--to or beyond the point where the original versions remain recognizable--then you may be disappointed by what you hear here.
I respect that opinion, but for me I am elated that these remixes retain the flavor of the originals. Bebel's original vocal tracks mostly remain in the foreground..it is just her accompiament that gets more aggressive grooves. If you think you will enjoy the contrast of Bebel's smooth, emotive vocals over a more rhythmic (but still compatible) backdrop, then I highly recommend this album. It's like having a second look at an excellent album that is as focused on Bebel's musical strengths as the original!

I can't say enough about this album, really! If you're a bossa nova, downtempo, tropical-loungey music type of fan, you'll absolutely love TANTO TEMPO REMIXES. For this project, some of the best in the bizz were commisioned to remix Bebel's gourgeous, sultry bossa Brazilian voice, each with their own personal flavour and style, remarkably adding (without detracting) a special touch to the already near-perfect debut album TANTO TEMPO. Standout tracks for me are the groovey, funky Rae & Christian remix of Bananeira, Truby Trio's jazzy, tropical rerub of Sem Contencao, the electro-luscious Chateau Flight take on August Day Song, Ananda Projects soulfully-housey Alguem, and last, but certainly not least, the deep, moody, intrigue of Peter Kruder's digital-esque reconstruction of the title track Tanto Tempo. As always, six degrees has proven itself to be a forward-thinking, modern music label, adding yet another release of class and quality to it's ever-expanding roster of wonderful electronic and world music! So what else are you waiting for, go get it already!!!

I actually heard these remixes BEFORE hearing the originals, inspired to buy the CD after hearing it play in the music store. Now it's a favorite, along with the original. Both are outstanding, in my "Top 5, play anytime" list. Heartily recommended!

I'm a Bebel Gilberto fan. Her voice & style is truly awesome!! I bought this album on pre-sale, knowing that at least it'd be good...and it's very good indeed, although the original Tanto Tempo album is the "masterpiece", no doubt (it deserves more than five stars). The remixes are lively, most of them electronic-techno-oriented (of course), but do not surpass the original versions, with one exception: "Bananeira", which in my opinion improves on the original. Other remixes that stand appart from the lot are Mario Caldato's "So Nice" (I love this song)and Faze Action's "Close your Eyes", because they tend to "capture" the brazilian flavor and do not differ too much from the originals. In the totally electronic-techno-oriented trend, Peter Kruder's "Tanto Tempo" is the best. If you are a Bebel fan, this one must be in your collection. We're waiting for the follow-up to "Tanto Tempo"!

As a DJ, I acquired this album after viewing the list of remixers and knowing of Bebel Gilberto. I did not listen to the original album, but don't really think it's a matter of one album being "better" than the other. I regularly use tracks from this album in my sets - particularly for late in a cocktail hour when people are settled in and feeling good, and things can get kicked up a notch in tempo and volume. My favorite remixes on this album are Chateau Flight's "August Day Song", Chari Chari's "Tanto Tempo" and "Bananeria" by Rae & Christian. The lush arrangements and beautiful voice of Bebel Gilberto transport the listener to an afternoon at the beach in sunny Rio de Janeiro. Highly recommended!

After being released over a year ago, Bebel Gilberto's original album "Tuto Tempo" remains
tightly lodged at the very top of Billboards World Music charts. In what amounts to a worldwide Bossa Nova phenomenon, Brazilian music in the last 5 years has inspired a vast number of talented producers from Europe all the way to Asia. This collection of
reconstructions and remixes by Peter Kruder(Kruder and Dorfmeister), Rae and Christian, King Britt, Reiner Truby Trio, Da Lata, 4hero, and others, is not only impressive for the talent it gathers on one record, but also for transcending the original versions and elevating them to new grounds, while retaining all of Bebel's smooth tropical sensuality.

I stumbled across this compilation at my local Goodwill. Familiar with the name Bebel Gilberto, if not her music, I picked it up having recognized Peter Kruder as one of the remix artists. So I come to this not as one who knows her music but as a techno geek who loves such artists as Thievery Corporation and Kruder & Dorfmeister (half the duo being the Peter Kruder noted above) who have introduced me to a collection of artists I'd never otherwise hear.

Compilations such as this remix album are a great way to listen to something new. It's obvious that the backbone of these mixes is Bebel Gilberto's music and it is quite lovely, though I will have to venture forth and obtain the original of this album.

But to compare it to the original is to miss the point. Of course it isn't the original and of course one should have the original. But remixes, in my opinion, are a great way to introduce people to the often inspired alternative versions one can make, even from a great original. Such is the case here.

There are some clunkers on here but many of them are quite stunning the highlights being Peter Kruder's version of "Tanto Tempo" and Rae & Christian's take on "Bananeira". Others are mere background music, though nice background music at that. All in all this is a good mix to put on for some downtempo mood music.
