Far Out follow Sabrina Malheiros stunning debut CD 'Equilibria' with 'Vibrasons' - a collection of remixes of some of the most popular tracks from 'Equilibria'. The list of remixers reads like a who's who of the hippest cats around - Nicole Conte, Quantic, Spiritual South, Kenny Dope, Kirk Degiorgio, Incognito & Venom, plus hotly tipped newcomers Max Cole & Beatnik & Boston Rodriguez. There's also the hip-hop beats of the instrumental version of 'Equilibria' plus a bonus track from Sabrina- a firing drum 'n' bass cut named 'Iemanja'. The remixes by Nicola Conte, Kirk Degiorgio, Boston Rodriguez and Max Cole & Beatnik are all exclusive to this CD (as is the bonus track and instrumental) and the mixes from Quantic, Spiritual South, Kenny Dope, Incognito, Venom and Roc Hunter were only released on limited vinyl only DJ runs. 'Vibrasons' is not a collection for DJs though - with a mix of styles and tempos it flows like an artist album. We have the nu-bossa stylings of Nicola Conte rubbing up against the Balearic funk of Kirk Degiorgio's mix (very much in the style of his new Beauty Room project on Peacefrog). Gilles Peterson knows a thing or two about finding hot new acts and we've got remixes from two new acts he's been hyping: Max Cole & Beatnik, who drop some laid-back future space funk for Sabrina to glide over whilst Boston Rodriguez drops a 21st century funk-jam. Kenny Dope, Spiritual South & Roc Hunter provide the floor fillers with their samba-house remixes whilst Incognito & Venom's mixes are straight up bossas. Quantic gets low down and dirty with Sabrina with his bass-heavy r 'n' b groove and 'Vibrasons' leaves you on a high with the scorching full-vocal drum 'n' bass groove 'Equilibria' that was released as a LTD vinyl promo in 2003. The Daily Telegraph said Sabrina's debut 'Equilibria' was "deliciously fresh... a perfect summer record", the Independent claimed it was "a perfect summer soundtrack..." whilst the Observer Music Monthly hailed 'Equilibria' as "gorgeous samba fusion....summer is here". Sabrina explains the vibe of the project: "'Vibrasons' is a play on words - it's a combination of 'Vibração' (vibrations) and 'Sons' (sounds). I love all the remixes as they breathe new life into the tracks"
