PREMIÈRE: DJ iZem feat. Nina Becker “Do Avesso”

By 26 September, 2011

DJ iZem will be releasing his debut EP on the 5th of October and we have an exclusive from the EP for you. “Do Avesso” is a reworking of a track by Brazilian singer Nina Becker, and features on the EP alongside a cover of Arnaldo Antunes’ “Debaixo D’Agua” and three versions of the original track “Quiver.”

DJ iZem is the co-founder and music director of the radio channel and website Groovalizacion – really worth checking out if you haven’t already – and also a man who knows a ridiculous amount about the great sounds being made around the world at the moment. “Do Avesso” has already been featured on Gilles Peterson’s show on BBC Radio one, who called it an “exciting dubstep take on Brazilian music.”
