About the Artist

This exciting new project was created by producer Rio (Adrien Zerbini) of Bluefish, and Brazilian guitarist Ecio Parreira. They conceived the idea of fusing well-known disco tunes with Bossa Nova whilst working on an album with Brazilian singer Diana Miranda.

Rio was a founder member of Mosquito records in 1993, and has been releasing successful dance records of all types ever since that time. His constant quest for blending genres in new ways has led him to the development of this project.

Ecio Parreira is known as the leader of such bands as Amazonia, a project which takes the traditional Brazilian styles like Baiaio, Maxixe and Batacuda, then pairs it with other musical styles from around the globe such as Reggae, Rock and Funk.

It took the duo two years of hard work, selecting just the right songs, choosing the best tempo and creating the lush arrangements heard on this recording. At this point, they began the search for the singer best suited to lead the music. After advertising widely, and selecting from over 120 singers, they chose three female vocalists: de L’amour, Mars and Chloé. All three singers bring their own personality to the songs:

De L’amour’s soulful style and Caribbean heritage combine with consummate sophistication. Her voice embodies the relaxed feel of Eldissa, taking the listener on a journey to a refreshingly positive state of mind.

Chloé was born in New York and is now based in Switzerland. Her vocals on tracks like "Stayin’ Alive" provide a bright and sunny flavor with a jazzy tinge.

Mars has a unique and expressive voice, heard to best effect on tracks like, "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!" A long-time collaborator with producer Rio since 1993, they have released many recordings together including "Boy I Gotta Have You" and "How Deep is Love?" Mars is currently based in London.
