Celebrated Brazilian musician Papatinho drops a vibey rework of AQUIHAYAQUIHAY’s “Muack,” infusing the Dim Mak En Fuego single with baile funk-infused hip-hop grooves.
Papatinho is a force to be reckoned with in the Latin music industry. Boasting collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Ludmilla, Anitta, and will.i.am, the critically acclaimed DJ and producer has proven himself a master of everything from rap to pop, and beyond. Following a collaboration with Scott Storch, Ozuna and Tyga on “Fuego Del Calor,” Papatinho now takes AQUIHAYQUIHAY’s “Muack” for a spin. The DJ and producer puts vibrant Brazilian funk in conversation with the band’s resonant vocals and replaces the track’s lofi-synth melody with his own catchy flute groove. As a result, he achieves a rhythmic rework that perfectly compliments AQUIHAYAQUIHAY’s versatile “M-pop” sound.
Since arriving on Dim Mak En Fuego earlier this summer, AQUIHAYAQUIHAY has made waves around the world with their innovative sound. Across three new singles, the self-proclaimed ‘anti-boy band’ has caught the attention of publications such as MTV News, Billboard, Rolling Stone, HipHopWired, Univision and UMO. Produced by Phynx & Adrian Be, “Muack” sees the band confidently kiss toxic love goodbye with finesse and swag. In a review of the original single, Remezcla proclaimed “..The Mexican boy band gives us an anthem for those people at the end of a relationship, trying to move on yet have lingering feelings..The results are bopping, yet a sense of sadness makes it a repeat listen.”
