Sérgio Mendes + Ledisi x DJ Spinna = Soulful House Heaven

sergio_mendes_ledisi_dj_spinna.JPGWith the temperatures heating up outside, it's not as if we need anything else to make us sweat. But Sérgio Mendes and Ledisi clearly want our antiperspirants to work overtime with this DJ Spinna remix of their song "Waters of March." Brazilian superstar Mendes enlisted soul sanger Ledisi for the remake of the Antonio Carlos Jobim classic on his newly released album, Encanto. Led's album version is cool, but in Spinna's clutches, this song is taken to a funky higher level with more percussion, keys and synthesizers. It's great to hear Ledisi on another soulful house track after she lent her vocals to Miguel Migs and Petalpusher's "Breakin' It Down" a few years back. Just like that song, this is another tune perfect for dancing the long summer days away.

  1. Thanks for the song! I'm also into the top 100... good picks! I've been getting into Janelle Monae too. She's going to be at a Toyota event in NYC this week. I work with them, so I'm really excited about spreading awareness of these thrilling, new webisodes called If Looks Could Kill. They follow an aspiring fashion designer, Bianca, who's involved in international espionage by night. If you're familiar with the BMW shorts from a couple of years ago (Guy Ritchie, Madonna), these webisodes definitely have a similar production level.

    Interactive: Toyota has gone one step further, the viewer can interact with Bianca to help her unravel the mystery that has suddenly become her life. I really enjoy the multiple levels; it adds a dimension of reality to the story and builds a unique relationship between the main character and viewer.
    Launch party: We have our official launch party the 11th @ Eyebeam in NYC— with performances by Ashanti, Janelle Monae (woo!) and Anthony Hamilton. Tyra Banks is also on the guest list!
    I'd really love your take on the first episode—Haute Pursuit—and discuss more as the other episodes roll-out. Myself, I'm still trying to figure out who the bad guy is—the ex, the boyfriend, the boss? Or maybe it's Nana? lol
    Again, would love your take because bloggers like yourself definitely have a good eye about what's cool, hot and current. I would have contacted you via email but I didn't know which the best way to reach you was. I hope I didn't overstep my bounds by directly contacting you.

    My fav song from Serio is still without a doubt "Never gonna let you go" One of the cool ballads of the 80's

  5. Spinna can do no wrong in my book. This is all one big ole "perfect combination

  6. Love it! It makes me smile and that's always a good thing.

  7. That was like two of my fav things together..Chocolate n Peanut butter.. A Reese's peanut butter Cup.. LOVE THEM BOTH!!

  8. Love Sergio Mendes.When I come to SB, memory lane just starts.Love the summery feel to it.Love Ledisi voice on this.

  9. Love Sergio Mendes! His last album featuring collabs with Black Eyed Peas and Stevie Wonder was pure sickness! And in my eyes, vocally, Led CAN NEVER DO NO WRONG!!! Oh yeah, Butta, Miguel Migs and Petalpusher are one in the same person... it's his DJ alter ego.

  10. I love this song!!! I love Ledisi and Sergio Mendes is the best!! Can someone tell me if they have this and the original on itunes? If not, where else can i find it?
