Other than Solange’s A Seat at the Table, possibly no other album released this year contains the cultural depth heard in Maria Usbeck’s debut solo album Amparo. At the end of this week, Cascine, in conjunction with Labrador Records, will be releasing a remix EP to compliment the album featuring reworkings by several producers. New York City’s Kaazi, who just dropped a pretty great album himself thorugh 100% Silk, is one of those producers. His offering is a reinterpretation of “Ciudad Desnuda” (“Naked City”) that he has dubbed the “Inner City Garden Mix.” His version is more smooth subtracting the somewhat frenetic percussion of the original creating audible serenity. It is quite beautiful and worthy alternative to the album cut.
