'CATAGNOMO' | Single 14/05 & EP 28/05 

France/ Brazil | Tropicalist Jazz 

‘Catagnomo’A contemporary jazz piece with a distinct Bagunço flavor.

‘Catagnomo’ is a contemporary jazz piece with a distinct Bagunço flavor. It’s a wandering theme, passing through psychedelic landscapes, funk parties and even romantic rendezvous under sweet moonlight. The resulting experience is the discovery of a unique territory, which the name ‘Catagnomo’ represents. ‘Catagnomo’ is a portuguese play on words that mixes the verb “catar” which means “to pick up” and “gnomo” that means “gnome”. As far as neologism goes, this one sounds more “Neo” than “Logos”!

 

In addition to the Single Catagnomo with the OriginalMix released on May 14th, the EP ‘Catagnomo’ will be released on May 28th, bringing the Original version + three Remixes by the producers Infrared (France) ClãBR (Brazil) and Mista Monk (Australia). that explore various possibilities of the song.

 

Argentine video-maker Joana Vento made a dreamlike Music Video, joining dance and reflection on femininity in the mysterious waves of the song.

'CATAGNOMO' | Behind The Remixes

BAGUNÇO

Catagnomo - REMIX

INFRARED

France

I always been a fan of jazz, jazz funk and hip hop and a huge fan of horns section, which inspired me for this remix.

I wanted an old school feel and soulful melodies to lift up the original

arrangement.

BAGUNÇO

Catagnomo - REMIX

CLÃBR

Brazil

The original music is very varied, with changes in rhythms, something very characteristic of the versatility and musical power of Bagunço.The song has a bpm similar to that of many Drum n Bass that I like, so I decided that this would be the main part of the music. I cut a part of the original track in order to give more dynamics, and transforming Jazz into Disco Music and DnB.

MISTA MONK

Australia

Mista Monk does a funky chop of elements of the original track ala Madlib style and adds a fresh dose of rap flavours musing on the questions, the questions.

 

Keeping the feel of the original intact for the most part this is an edit slash remix with Monk's signature rap style for added bonus.

'SIM OU SIM' | Single & Music Video

France/ Brazil | Tropicalist Festive Jazz 

'Sim Ou Sim' | Picture John Coltrane jamming in Rio de Janeiro!

Bagunço's new release 'Sim ou Sim', 'Yes or Yes', as the name suggests, is a hymn to assertiveness. It sounds crazy, and we love it. Born out of influences that go from the jazz master John Coltrane to the Samba and Pagode of Grupo Molejo, the song is an instrumental samba theme coupled with unexpected chord changes. The combination goes straight to the point to make people dance!

The Launch of 'Sim ou Sim' Single & Music Video is set for 22 of January, on Brazilian Summer.

'AS TRÊS' | Behind The Remixes

BAGUNÇO

As Três - Drum&bass
REMIX

INFRARED

France

As a huge Drum & Bass music fan, UK is my source of inspiration and those beautiful horn section from Bagunço, i just needed an extra push with a strong drum and bass to make it even
 more massive.

'As Três' is one of the best Remixes i have done so far.

Jungle is massive!

BAGUNÇO

As Três - CaboclinhoDub REMIX

ZIVITO

Brazil

My reinterpretation of 'As Três' was developed under the base of the Caboclinho, a popular revelry in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil, translated in the context of digital music.

The track had the mixes of percussions and electronic drums with the power of metals, mixing Frevo and Cavalo Marinho rhythms with elements of dance music and synthesizers.

BAGUNÇO

As Três - SkaDub REMIX

INFRARED

France

A beautiful horns section and melodies was the inspiration for this Remix.


With those two distinctive horns section, I was able to play around, going from Ska to a Reggae Dub part, which gives movements to this SkaDub version for
'
As Três'.  

Rastafari!!!

BAGUNÇO

As Três - Afro House REMIX

THE PHAT ONES

South Africa

We have had our far share of remixes over the years but this one was a real beautiful challenge.

We loved Bagunço’s horn section and we knew that we wanted to focus on that part of the song, to give African spirit in the Brazilian Jazz and make it a worldbeat for the dance floors.

With a soft yet aggressive guitar to set in the background as a solid foundation. Then we took it back to our South African roots by adding a spiritual, raw, jungle, soulful incident vocals.
