The Trilaterals welcome the summer with a new EP showing love for Teena Marie. The trio consisting of Aljax3, Kristi Lomax and Third Sun apply their 3 producers, 1 sample process to the song Portuguese Love.
Laced with latin and harmonic jazz overtones, “Portuguese Love” is an orchestral bouquet of sonic mood shifts, string-infused motifs and a rising, cascading free-flowing melody. Teena’s emotional vocals and outstanding production make “Portuguese Love” an enduring bedroom masterpiece.
The Trilaterals sample and flip “Portuguese Love” and find 3 unique vibes. “Teena’s Mood” by Aljax3 is a mid tempo groove inspired by the Theo Parrish remix for Jill Scott’s Slowly Surely. Teena’s Mood takes an inside look of the creative process that all music producers go through. Does your mood dictate the song or does the song dictate your mood? Aljax3 looks to answer that question.
Third Sun’s “Teena’s Bounce” takes you on a broken beat journey that zigs and zags in all the right directions. While “Afro-LaTeena” by Kristi Lomax keeps the song’s original Latin flavor, while adding some Afro house vibes.
Ladies and gentlemen,
The Trilaterals present to you: Teena
