Here I was thinking that it took a lot of people working together to pull off the actual World Cup itself, then I saw the lineup for this track “Eparrei.” You could practically field a soccer team here. The song, from Fatboy Slim’s Fatboy Slim Presents Bem Brasil, which he’s calling the unofficial soundtrack to the World Cup (he’s currently on a World Cup Tour — lucky dude), finds the legendary producer teaming up with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, and Diplo, with contributions from Bonde Do Role and Pin for a Brazilian mega-jam.
Also like the World Cup, this is a multi-cultural affair, with pieces of musical styles from throughout South America and Africa woven into the context of the superstar producers’ globe-shrinking point of view. A little electro here, some moombahton, and funk carioca from Brazil, and Portuguese vocals. Of course whether or not you’re going to be partying to this song anytime soon will probably depend on your favorite team does, but we highly recommend you give it a listen and at least score a couple of culture points for the day.
