Dj Dolores Featuring Isaar
Aparelhagem
Ziriguiboom

By Jill Ettinger

Published June 27, 2006

Brazilian DJ Dolores (aka Helder Aragao) is one of those rare talents: impossible to imagine before hearing, and once heard, impossible to imagine a music collection without. Dance floors around the world have been transformed at the hands of this digitally inclined discographer. Having scored soundtracks and remixed tracks for artists like Gilberto Gil, Tribalistas and Taraf de Haïdouks, Dolores has made a name for himself, winning several Brazilian awards to boot. On his latest offering, Aparelhagem (Brazilian slang for “sound system” and also name of his new live band), Dolores expands his sonic reach beyond the turntables and sampler. A little bit political (“De Dar Do”) and introspective (“Prece,” “Sanidade”), Aparelhagem is intensely festive, drawing on dance rhythms like maracatú replete with vocals by Isaar (think a deeper Bebel Gilberto), live horns, guitar, synthesizer and percussion. Copious amounts of folkloric vocal stylings tell stories of Brazilian life both night and day versions a la not-so-dubby loops and house-influenced beats. Hips and feet, please meet “Azougue,” “Rouen” and “Matilha.”
