328 // Caju – Piña Colada (Original Mix)

Rio de Janeiro-based label Underdogs brings to life the compilation "Viralatas". Premiered here, the "carnavalesca" contribution by Caju, the rising Brazilian duo formed by Agrabah & Caio Schmitz.

Caju (cashew apple, in English) “is a light reddish to yellow fruit, whose pulp and juice can be processed into a sweet, astringent fruit drink or fermented and distilled into liquor”. Caju (SXDNS200/FREEDL016) is also the name of the hot Brazilian duo formed by Ágatha Prado aka Agrabah (SXDNS008) & Caio Schmitz. They land for the first time on the Rio de Janeiro-based imprint Underdogs Music as part of its forthcoming compilation called “Viralatas”, a groovy and spicy VA also featuring Bernardo Campos, Live Motel, Morgado, Icle, Leo Janeiro, and Seed Selector, a combination of seasoned artists and new faces on the block who delivered insightful themes in order to showcase the growing Brazilian Nu Disco scene.

The track we chose to premiere, “Piña Colada”, brings Ágatha & Caio once again flirting with Samba-infused percussive elements, something definitely and extremely characteristic in their sonority. If they were not DJs/producers, they would probably be part of an Escola de Samba or Bloco de Rua to parade during the carnival in the streets of Brazil while playing the pandeiro or the timbal. Undoubtedly, “Piña Colada” is one of the highlights of the compilation and carries an enormous potential to become a hit in the carioca Summer.

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
