Today, Leo Justi (Brazil) and Empara Mí (UK) share their new single “Bounce”. The track is a collaboration between the champion of Brazilian “heavy baile” and an enigmatic audio-visual artist on the rise. While Leo provides driving percussion and hypnotizing vocal samples, Empara Mí sends out her powerful statement in both English and French. The song will be featured in a commercial for the new Apple Watch line shortly after Apple’s keynote event on September 12th.
Empara Mí describes the track as “Something I would never usually write. Leo’s from Brazil and I’m from the Channel Islands. We’re from two opposite sides of the world with completely opposite musical styles but as soon as I heard the beat I knew exactly what I wanted to do: dance! I wanted to bring a bit of my Guernsey culture to the track so I added a bit of French to the mix and lyrics that make me want to move!”
