Brazil just turns everything into gold. Musically diverse as the country is, it isn’t known for Drum & Bass.
But when Brazilian D’n’B DJ Marco Antonio da Silva, aka DJ Marky, put his hand to making some bangers, he added a layer of Brazilian brilliance that is truly stupendous.
“LK” is built around samples from a 1970 Bossa Nova track called “Carolina, Carol Bena”, by Toquinho and Jorge Ben. So they can take credit for the blissful guitar and those garbled yet comforting vocals in the second half of the tune!
The song was released in 2002 on V Recordings.
