Check Out Boogát Remix Poirier’s “Café Com Leite”
You would never know it was winter listening to this superb restyling of Poirier’s “Café Com Leite” by fellow Montreal producer and vocalist Boogát. The first single from a forthcoming remix EP of Poirier’s 2020 LP “Soft Power”, this flip of that album’s standout track features the addition of brilliant horns and Latin percussion, transforming the dreamy original into a euphoric and tropical house heater. Pour yourself a Caipirinha, take in the alluring rhythm and breathy vocals… if you close your eyes you would be forgiven for thinking you were in Copacabana.
