As tUnE-yArDs, Merrill Garbus pulls musical inspiration from around the world, and a song like “Water Fountain” brings a tribal dance-music intensity that doesn’t quite compare to anything else. DJ Marfox, a dance producer from Lisbon, has now reworked “Water Fountain,” somehow turning it even more frantic and throwing in guest vocals from Pearls Negras, the Brazilian baile funk trio who wound up in the Mixtape Of The Week column earlier this year. It’s a busy, overwhelming remix of a song that was already pretty busy and overwhelming. Listen below.
TUnE-yArDs’ album Nikki Nack is out now on 4AD.
