City Of God Remixed (Vols 1 & 2) (2CD set)

CD (Item 115302) Discmedi (Spain), 2003 — Condition: Used
$13.99 ...


A bright batch of remixed tunes full of pulsing bouncy beats, keys, strings and grooves – essentially a remix project of songs from the film City Of God – a gritty story set in the slums of Rio! That feel is totally re-imagined here, though, as the set is full of positive, bouncing vibes and celebratory atmosphere! The cuts all have a really bright & bouncing sheen, and they are for the most part beat-heavy, club-ready instrumentals. It's the kind of sound we love on the Compost and Mr. Bongo labels, but the vibe demonstrated here is much more immediate – it's all about the bounce! Titles include "Hard Galinha" by Renato Cohen, "Convite Pra Vida (rmx)" by Beto Villares, "Busca (rmx)" by Apollo 9, "Samba Trio (rmx)" by Instituto, "Brasileiro Roxo" by Dj Yah, "Tomada Das Bocas (chill mix)" byAndre Andreo, "Mad Zoo Sessions" by Mad Zoo, "La Virada (rmx)" by Antonio Pinto, and "Funk Da Virada (waterfront lounge mix)" by Eraldo Palmero.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
