For the second installment of our yearlong remix collaboration with Fania, the classic Latin label, we enlisted the awesome London-via-Medellin producer/DJ/vocalist Isa GT, whose unending wellspring of energy is second only to her deftness with a synth rack and a dancefloor, often jolting traditional Colombian and afro-caribbean styles with neon electro zap, a 21st Century party-people take on the populist jams of Latin America. And as a founding member of London’s Girlcore Collective, Isa has supported the work of enterprising women, put together notoriously off-the-chain parties and toured the world, with her latest release being the Pa’Kichirri EP on Man Recordings. For this project, Isa remixed Ismael Rivera’s black pride anthem “Las Caras Lindas” into a minimal-maximal masterpiece, injecting a tiny but electrified synth melody and club-uniting handclaps under his powerful vocals. Listen to the track and read our interview with Isa after the jump, then head over to Beatport to purchase the MP3. Stay tuned for more awesome remixes from Fania x The FADER!
