Towa Tei feat. Astrud Gilberto - Technova (Mr. PC Belle Isle Balearic Edit)

from RSDD003 // Social Distance Edits by Mr. PC aka Peter Croce



As a younger crate digger I am frequently surprised by the source material of tracks. I got the promo for Felipe Gordon's "Now That You Caught My Heart For The Evening" on Razor-N-Tape Reserve, and thought it was cool that he sampled J Dilla's beat on A Tribe Called Quest's "Find A Way". Going down the sample digging rabithole I realized Dilla actually sampled Towa Tei and Astrud Gilberto's "Technova". So I got my hands on the single and realized there was some great mixes on there. I loved the Original Mix, but the Folknova Mix really jumped out to me. I started playing the Folknova Mix into the Original Mix in my sets, usually manipulating the Folknova Version with echo. But I don't always have access to FX so I went ahead and put them together for an edit.
