Habanera (Feat. Katia Ricciarelli) (dOP / Nu & Israel Vich Mixes) by Shield & Robytek

Circulating on a limited promo in the last few weeks and gaining big support from names like Pete Tong, Gilles Peterson, Guy Gerber, Dj Koze, Bedouin and Acid Pauli to name a few, ‘Habanera’ is finally here ! A collaboration between Shield, Robytek and Katia Ricciarelli, the most loved and well-known Italian soprano in the world.

Katia made his debut with La Bohème in Mantua in 1969, performing all around the world, and gets back into the game this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her career.
The result is something innovative, a new version of the famous aria ‘L’amour Est Un Oiseau Rebelle’ by Georges Bizet’s Carmen, mixing opera with the electronica, deconstructing its traditional conception and fusing it with downtempo, jazz and house.

The unique trio from Paris, dOP, are back with their eclectic style, speeding the tempo up, and combining the magical elements of the original version with an effective groove, a penetrating bass, and a beautiful strings section.

A nomad of modern times, Nu is back on production after a long time joining forces with Israel Vich, and delivering another modern-day electronic classic. They slow things down into an hypnotic balearic number with trippy percussions, piano and the original guitar parts.
Elegant, modern and unconventional music. A record that will stay with us for a long time.
