Cadenza revisit Felipe Venegas & Francisco Allendes’ iconic ‘Llovizna’

The marvellous Chilean blooded “Llovizna”, produced by the talented Felipe Venegas & Francisco Allendes was originally released in 2009 on Cadenza 40th vinyl release. We are delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its publication with a crisp remix by the mighty Luciano and a rework hot off the press by its original writers. Furthermore, there will be another heavyweight remixer, a big surprise and an appreciated comeback: Loco Dice needs no introduction, and his remix of this Cadenza classic leaves us speechless. A magnificent bond of the original Latin vibes and astonishing peak-time sound manipulation with a relentless pace. The remixes and the rework will be released both on a vinyl E.P. and in digital format.

“Llovizna” is a track with an indissoluble bond with Cadenza’s South America roots, abound perpetually fortified by the origin of many of the artists involved with the label, and by the choice to host amazing massive events in Chile and in the rest of the continent. A funky bassline and full-bodied reverberating jazz drums make out Luciano’s bubbly and shiny remix. The cutting edge climactic sequencing of its synthesisers and the seasoned use of percussive breaks and fills exalt the emotional interlude of the folkloric female Latin chant, just before a fully-fledged dancefloor-oriented restart.

The rework delivered by Felipe and Francisco starts off banging with a resolved bass drum, rattling shakers and fierce hi-hats. Subtle melodies slowly rise from its minimalistic framework revealing in advance all the sweetness.
