Brooklyn’s finest, Razor-N-Tape, are pushing out again on their Reserve imprint, the label love for all things original, shiny and new. This EP is brought to us by Diogo Strausz, a producer, song writer and multi-instrumentalist from Rio de Janeiro. Through both solo work and collaboration, and at just 31 years of age,  he’s already blazed an impressively accomplished trail in the world of music. Part of the duo BalakoDiogo Strausz has released previously on Razor-N-Tape, Barefoot Beats and Greco-Roman.

Following on from last year’s standout 7”,  RNT now reveal the incredible extended mixes of the original pair of tunes, along with a strikingly beautiful remix of the title track by the inimitable Ron Trent.  Originally conceived by this Brazilian producer to be long-form tracks that showcase the deep musicianship of Strausz and his cohorts, extended organ and piano solos and instrumentation now stretch out in all their jazzy glory across one side of a heavyweight 180g 12”.  On the A-side the architect of the Chicago house scene, and Prescription Records master Ron Trent, takes ‘Emancipação’ positively interstellar, with added instrumentation and mounting percussion that builds toward a soulful and hypnotic peak, the way only he can do.
