W&W Go Brazilian With DV&LM, Diplo, Fatboy Slim And More
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Diplo and Fatboy Slim feat. Bonde Do Role and Pin - Eparrei (W&W Remix) [Smash The House]

If you want an EDM mega-group, how about this little lineup: Dutch duo W&W (pictured) put their spin on Eparrei, the collaborative single from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Diplo, Fatboy Slim and Brazilian electro-funk group Bonde Do Role.

This mass orgy of dance music stars is all part of Fatboy Slim’s Bem Brasil album, released to celebrate the 2014 FIFA World Cup. W&W take the carnival spirit from the original track and combine it with some dark and dirty electro house. It’s an unusual mixture, but it’s something they pull off perfectly. The builds, with the Portuguese vocals and samba rhythms, celebrate one of the biggest sporting events on the planet and the party atmosphere that goes with it, yet the drops are as tense and serious as a penalty shoot-out. It’s not all about football though, as Eparrei is a great summer tune in its own right, so even if you couldn’t care less about the tournament, this is still worth turning up loud.

The W&W remix of Eparrei is out now as a Beatport Exclusive, with the original featuring on Fatboy Slim’s Bem Brasil album, available now on iTunes. Check out the video for the original mix below:
