DJs and music historians Greg Caz and Deano Sounds have teamed up to bring the world a beautiful package of vintage Brazilian music, selected with discerning and funky Brazilian music fans in mind.
The Brasileiro Treasure Box of Funk & Soul spans an infectious and impressive range of funk, soul, and psychedelic music from 1970s Brazil. Some highlights include: the extremely rare and funky “Labirinto” by 2001 & Beto; the blistering psychedelic funk of Antônio Carlos & Jocafi’s “Quem Vem Lá”; the essential rare groove track “Bananeira” by Emilio Santiago; Osmar Milito E Quarteto Forma’s rare “América Latina” (sampled by Madlib on Madvillain’s Raid); Tom Zé’s unstoppable riff on “Jimmy, Renda-Se”; and many others.
The 45 box set version comes in a durable glossy case with 7 x 45s, a poster containing the original artwork for the album, and a booklet printed on thick paper.
Released on the 23rd of October you can pre-order and check out track snippets on the Cultures Of Soul website.
‘Dança dos Tempos’ is the debut album from thrilling, young Brazilian guitarist Fabiano do Nascimento, and it features legendary percussionist Airto Moreira in his first album project in over ten years. Dança dos Tempos follows folkloric Brazilian music as experienced through the mind and able fingers of an expansive musician, not yet thirty years old, and combines the heady ‘60s and ‘70s experimentalism of Hermeto Pascoal and Baden Powell with the childlike elegance of music played and passed down by native Brazilians for generations.
Released on April 6th on Now-Again Records, preview a track below.
