(1996 – present)

Da Lata was originally founded by musician and producer Chris Franck and DJ Patrick Forge in the summer of 1996. The idea for the project was to blend influences with modern sensibility incorporating both and elements in the music.

Early experimentation came in the form of remixes rather than original material which proved to be a great way of honing the sound and at the same time gave exposure to the name.

Hooking up with Lee Hamblin (a man who had all the right technical skills and studio experience), Da Lata recorded their first original track - ‘Deep Water’ for UFO’s Brownswood label in Japan. This was followed by a string of remixes for artists as diverse as Ruby, Sly And Robbie, Galliano and Carlinhos Brown.

In the spring of 1997 Da Lata released the highly successful version of the Edu Lobo classic ‘Ponteio’ on Jo DavisFar Out label featuring Brazilian vocalist Liliana Chachian. The tune filtered over to NY and Dj’s such as Francois Kevorkian and Joe Claussel made it massive at the now legendary ‘Body and Soul’ club.

The response to the record was extremely positive worldwide, with all the right people making the right kind of noises, it was hailed as both ‘ground-breaking’ and ‘classic’. Dj’s such as Gilles Peterson, Phil Asher, Rainer Truby, Gerry Lyseight, Shuya Okino were all championing Da Lata’s music.

    I'm looking for a remix of Serious (Tuff Dub). I've heard it from a set of Ian Pooley on his website. I don't know were to find it. I've looked both Palm Pictures and Pooledmusic labels. Do someone know anything about this? The sound is realy powerfull!
