But within several projects released lies without doubt the 2007 remix from “Oskar.DJ and Babalu” for Carlos Fauvrelle’s original track “Riliz the Pressure”. This work was put out on “Meridua Recordings” along with versions from artists like “Jaimy” or “Joubin”.
His versatile style allows him to enhance tracks like “So Sexy” from world top producers “Jamie Lewis & Dj Pippi”. The “Oskar.DJ & P. Carrilho” remix arose an immense demand on radio airplay and DJ sets. Recognition of this is its inclusion on the “Annual Mix 2007” CD out on “Vidisco” and also on " Club Kaos Vol.5" out on “Kaos”. They got together to remix the track “Southboys – Organik”, a great track that is sung by Dilek Taskin and has been a success since early 2008.
