Both Vince & I are HUGE Dj Cremoso fans. He is my favourite DJ on Planet Earth! No joke cause no-one puts a smile on my face quite like Dj Cremoso! So what better way to end 2010 than with a Dj Cremoso mixtape!
Apparently, Dj Cremoso is not a real Live DJ but a studio music producer! Of course his real identitiy is unknown, not only to to preserve his anonymity, but also to safeguard his real recording artist persona!
Here’s what he says about dj’ing:
I never would DJ because I am unable to do anything but press the play button and wait for the music stops. And, although many people say that you ought to DJ, I can’t because I do not understand that being a DJ is something much more complex. I would say my attitude is inclusive and respectful of the real DJs.
So, as you would never get DJ Cremoso laying down a mixxtape of his GENIUS remixes, I took it upon myself to remedy that situation and so here you have PART 1 of my tribute to the world’s greatest living DJ (who is not a real DJ)!
And for those of you who don’t know TecnoBrega:
Tecno brega or technobrega (Cheesy Techno) is a form of music from northern Brazil, particularly Belém. Music of the genre is created primarily through remixing and reworking songs from popular music and music from the eighties. (wiki)
Here’s what DJ Cremoso says about it:
I think tecnobrega a musical style very crazy. I often say that it was forged by the lack of musical training of some people who had access to the tools of production. Sometimes a musician will prevent you from doing things that a lay person would. The culture of tecnobrega is the culture in which everyone can write / sing / produce / play. This is interesting from the point of view of the emergence of new ideas and new ways of making music. But it can be tiring when certain themes are recurrent or very much out of tune singers. In the latter case, it can be funny on first listen, but does not result in a further step forward, musically speaking.
It’s all a big joke. There is to “spoil” an original music remix because I will not become more popular than the original versions. And I really believe that the original artists prefer to hear a funny remix of someone translating their music to any content of double meaning and vulgar sing completely out of tune.
I hope you enjoy the mixxtape and all the best for your final 2010 parties tonight.
