New remixes: Lucie Antunes gets remixed by DJ Danifox & DK
Lucie Antunes is back with the delightful EP ‘Vous Êtes Parfait.e.s’ → Listen
On the heels of her critically acclaimed second album Carnaval, a series of remixes, and opening the renowned Parisian festival Rock En Seine, French composer, percussionist, and producer Lucie Antunes is back with the delightful EP, “Vous êtes Parfait.e.s.”
On this EP, we center around the Carnaval mid-album track Vous êtes Parfait.e.s (meaning “You are Perfect”, in gender-neutral French) and two new remixes. It’s a track that is near and dear to Lucie, with her explaining, “I…needed to have a song like Vous êtes parfait.e.s…I needed love. I need to be in a very good mood.” The song is a triumphant ode to the non-binary, with Lucie fusing electronic elements with organic sounds resulting in a festive and sensory trance, highlighted by the unrelenting mantra: “You are Perfect”, with Lucie reminding us to love ourselves as we are.
The first remix is at the hands of Lisbon-born producer DJ Danifox. The track’s previously straightforward, bouncy dance beat is flipped under the shuffling batida, or a musical rhythmic discipline created in Lisbon’s Afro-diasporic underground, where Danifox was born. Sparse piano and chopped vocals proclaiming the title of the track adorn the new vision of the track in the hands of the exciting and fresh producer.
Building on the marimba element of Lucie’s original production, Parisien producer D.K. offers a charming cascading remix combining rhythm melodic percussion, reverberant gamelan patterns and rich textures.
