Joining the dots between Brazilian musical culture and the sonic melting pot that is New York City, Saidera are a trio on the rise. Theyve already released a pair of critically acclaimed, carnival-ready singles on Brooklyns Lets Play House label and are now ready to make their debut on Leng Records.The bands roots can be traced back to a trip that Lemonade band member Alex Pasternak made to Brazil in 2014. While DJing at a house party in the bohemian Rio de Janeiro neighbourhood of Sta Teresa, Pasternak was left gobsmacked when a mysterious local singer/sambista Vadinho Freire, grabbed the mic and started freestyling lyrics and melodies over his set. Realising their instinctive musical connection, Pasternak and Freire decided to work together on some music, with New Yorker Le Chev joining them to complete the Saidera trio.Now based in Rio and California, the groups sun-soaked sound which they describe as samba disco-Afro melody is a cross-cultural stew in which infectious Brazilian percussion, colourful synth sounds, glistening guitars and celebratory vocals combine to create magical, life-affirming musical moments.Luzes Da Cidade, their first outing on Leng, encapsulates all thats good about the Saidera sound and the trios approach to music. The song is about identity and connection and in its original form is languid, loved-up and joyous, with acoustic and electric guitars, Portuguese vocals and Korey Rikers gently breezy flute solos rising above a squelchy synth bassline and energetic, sweat-soaked samba drums.The songs main mix comes accompanied by a wonderful instrumental pass featuring more extensive solos by Riker, and Saideras own remix of Luzes Da Cidade an extra-percussive, breakbeat-tinged fusion of hazy deep house, energetic samba and sunset-ready synth-disco that will delight DJs and dancers alike.To round off the EP, Saidera has delivered a brand new Uprockin Dub of debut single Deixa Tudo Fluir, this time with female vocals from Irina Bertolucci taking the lead. Brilliantly kaleidoscopic sonically, with dub delay-laden vocals, guitars and flutes, its a superb, life-affirming Balearic reggae interpretation of a now familiar favourite. If youre not singing along with the chorus after your first listen, wed be very surprised.//
