One of my favorite producers, remixer and friends is Jaloo, aka Jaime Melo.

A few days ago he released his first EP – Bai Bai, with 8 great remixes.  UMB is also a big fan and he asked me to ask him for a TOP 10 and so here it is together with commentary by Jaloo. Get in!!

Bjork – Come To Me

Thi is one hell of a song, perfection in the lyrics and melody.  It was on her “Debut “, one of my favorite albums of all time.  It has one of the strongest verses and choruses I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing “So do not make me say it It would burst the bubble Break the charm”

Caetano Veloso – Estou triste

This song came out a a while back on the last release Caetano:”Abraçaço”. I had the great pleasure to meet him at his house, I saw the lights of the slum, the beach and the house is huge … I quite understand what he meant by this song .

Chairlift – Amanaemonesia

This is a piece of Art, orgasmic harmonies .

Gal Costa – Sua Estupidez

This song speaks so much to me, has such a perfect structure, stanza after stanza, the chills only increase.

Grimes – Oblivion

How two chords can last an entire song and yet still sound so unique?

Jorge Ben – Errare Humanum Est

I came a little late to the work of Jorge Ben. WOW! what a powerful song. After hearing this, you feel more existentialist and it stays with you for a long time.

Maria Bethânia –  Onde Estará Meu Amor

Chico Cesar wrote this song and he already fulfilled his mission here on Earth after this piece of art. And the voice of Maria Bethânia ! Wow !

Sia – Lentil

She is my favorite singer and my favorite songwriter. She screams out its pain and it shatters me in pieces.

The Knife – Heartbeats

Can an electronic music duo make songs that live forever? Yes! Currently, they inspire the path that I intend to follow.

Morrissey – I’m Not Sorry

This is the kind of music I would wish to hear before I depart.
