PAM unveils the London duo’s exclusive remix of “Tanto Tiempo,” which was produced by Adam Scrimshire and the group Penya.
Known in London as a purveyor of party vibes, the duo Village Cuts continues their streak with a remix of “Tanto Tiempo,” produced by Adam Scrimshire and the equally cosmopolitan group Penya. Village Cuts is influenced by all kinds of dance music, wherever it comes from: Afrobeat, cumbia, highlife and rumba blend together perfectly against a backdrop of typical underground British sounds. For Penya, this collaboration marks a significant move, since the group is on a quest to combine different global musical influences. Their name comes from the Spanish word “Peña,” meaning “a place of meeting and celebration for artists.”
As for Scrimshire, they continue to honor jazz, as illustrated by their latest album, and add a touch of warmth during a cold, distanced period: “Everyone I worked with early in lockdown, seemed to want to express those longings for physical and emotional connection too.” “He adds, regarding his latest album, Believers Vol. 1: “It is also, for me personally a love letter to black music and the black artists that shaped everything I care about sonically, from my very first memories of music until now.” With this remix, Village Cuts sublimates the track with brass instruments, but also with added vocals in the service of dance-worthy rhythms.
