Following on from their standout debut release, Viaggio return with another collection of global grooves, formulated by co-captain of Viaggio Recordings, Musta. Nestled alongside Mustas productions, Disco Halal affiliate and man of the moment, Kincaid takes to remixing the mind bending Cantana.
The A side is an invite into the inner circle of the tribe, with melodic messenger Musta leading the dance. Rome born, Sardinia based, he channels the sounds, sights and feelings of his time spent living in South America into the tribalistic Cantana. Hypnotically rhythmic, drawing on local samples and entrancing, percussive loops, Musta weaves organic, analog synths and beating kicks to form its basis. The energy conjured is animalistic, moving bodies with a purpose drawn from deep within. Enter the spiritual vocal – as infectious as they get, itll have dancers imitating the chants without them even knowing what theyre doing.
Who better to remix this far-flung treasure than rising star, Kincaid. Taking Cantana and twisting it into a tripped out roller, that transplants Mustas exotic soundscapes into a distant cosmos. Surging synthesis, tectonic echoes and wobbly, otherworldly tinges pop and crackle throughout. Its a grittier, glitchier affair with a more electronic, distorted feel, yet its roots still remain in that warm, earthy aesthetic with its rich, tactile tones.
Take to the flip side and Musta swaps the baked earth, for the sandy tropical disco sounds of Mangiamo – further bringing that South American flavour to the fore. Strutting guitar riffs blend with fiery bongos, whilst a punchy bass strides over the top. Its uplifting, alluring and drenched in the kind of zesty sax lines that will bring a smile to the face of any frown it comes up against.

Variety is the spice of life. Bumping!
Cantana original is BIG! Will play. Also enjoyed Mangiamo.
Ooh yes sir! This is sounding really rather lovely and a worthy and consistent follow up to the first Viaggio release. Mangiamo is pipping it for me but the Kincaid remix will be getting plenty of spins too. Nice one!

PETER OAKDEN/ FIFTY FATHOMS DEEP/ 6TH BOROUGH PROJECT
Both nice versions but like the Kincaid remix of Cantana and the original a little bit more than the original, maybe because i know i can play it in the club..
Mangiamo is great too – will defiantly play out.
BILLY SCURRY/ BELFAST MUSIC CLUB
Superb OG and killer remix, Kincaid on the money ,but it’s the rhythm in Mangiamo that’s shaking me. Strong release, def will be in the playlist for quite some time..
JIM LISTER/BRIGHTON FM
Uplifting tribal bass line business!
CHRIS DE BUERRE
Lovely little bubbler this one! The original mix is a lovely slow build with chunky bottom end and a lovely nagging groove that you can’t say no to. The break is really fun too.
The Kincaid remix isn’t as immediate for me because the groove isn’t as good. It’s housier and the perky hi-hat is nice. Prefer the original though, sorry!
Mangiamo is sunshine on a plate! Lovely Doobie Brothers -style riff and the vocal is really summery. It sounds like sunshine! Looking forward to dropping late in the afternoon sun somewhere nice!
PHIL MISON / CANTONMA
Really like it.
MARK ROBERTS / POTATO HEAD
I am loving the Kinkaid mix. So much fun this one – lovely vibe!
SIMBAD / WWFM
Yes for the original of Cantana
JUSTIN PENNY/ GRAFITTI KINGS
I can’t work out which version of Cantana I like the best. Both are excellent! Afro funk, percussion, vocals that nobody knows what they are on about 😉 – Kincaid’s remix has that dance floor tripped out effect – it’s all good!
BEN DAVIS/ PAPER RECORDINGS
Managiamo hits the goal on the penalty shoot-out of afro raveor something.
I really like Cantana original version.
AL MACKENZIE/ FIELD OF DREAMS
Loving this. Mangiamo is ace. Also feeling the Kincaid remix. Lovely EP
