Image: 1603432 London based South African Esa Mervin Granger is part of a unique breed of talent emerging on the electronic music scene. Drawing influences from his roots but firmly looking towards the future, Esa embodies a sound without limitations. Esa has developed a distinct yet and expansive musical identity. A regular at many of the best underground parties, venues and festivals across the UK and Europe, Esa has also carved out a niche curating electronic music-focused educational programmes in Cuba, East Africa and South Africa which forms part of the Highlife World Series project. Continuing to further his knowledge and share his skills inspiring enthusiastic DJ's and producers around the world.

After a trip to Brazil in late 2015, Esa had the opportunity to meet some inspiring young Brazilian DJ's / producers, notably Dani Souto, Carrot Green & Millos of Selvagem who introduced him to the Cel-Som record store in downtown Sao Paulo, it was here that Esa discovered some of the legacy artist such as Zeze Motta, Tribo Massahi and Tim Maia which were the source of inspiration for these two remakes, the first from legendary Tim Maia, 'Que Beleza' with new arrangements and elements was given beautiful percussion and fresh spacey atmosphere, quite transcendental and pleasant to the ears.

Sandra Sa, 'Trem do Central' delivers a more DJ / Dance floor friendly version with filtered samples, a funky bassline and detuned chords. Both remakes celebrate the respected artist and their great music.
