Lhasa de Sela’s “El Pajaro” Gets the Remix Treatment From Oakland’s DLMJ

From the depths of Soundcloud comes DLMJ, who we’re so very happy to have become acquainted with. The mysterious Oakland-based producer has dropped a looping, slow-rising edit of Llasa de Sela’s “El Pajaro,” from the late artist’s album Llorona. The edit, at some points almost entering into deep space, loungey territory, is grounded by a somber tribal beat that leave space for surges of the original’s sped-down vocals.

The remix (with under 200 plays!) feels in line with the eerie tribute remix variety, reminiscent of Sonora’s haunting, elegantly sped-up “Mercedes Sosa” that the San Antonio-based producer and Peligrosa crew member created to pay homage to the Violeta Parra classic.
