Fresh kickin´stuff, found the amazing Bebel du Guetto via the SoundGoods blog, where you can download two songs from her. And SoundGoods from Rio de Janeiro is always worth a visit, presenting a lot of superb mixes with music not only from Brasil, but from Latin America and Africa in general. I want especially spotlight on the MPBC Mix. The MPBC series was released by Phonogram-Polygram from 1978 to 1981 and presented contemporary popular brazilian music (Música Popular Brasileira Contemporânea). But don´t let you fool by the name, the record series with – as far as I know –  11 parts has nothing to do with MPB, how national pop-music generally is called in Brasil. In fact it was Jazz and Fusion more or less infected by brasilian music styles…… plopp blobb blobb, ya exactly, you did guess right: Forró, Samba, Bossa Nova and so on. Every single release is worth your attention and the mix is a very good introduction to it and if you decide to digg deeper, SoundGoods also gives you the links to all the records. Thank you and greetings to Rio!

I also remembered what I said a dozen times to myself, “ripp some of your fuckin LPs”. Well, I am a lazy guy but now after my puplic confession the pressure is rising and in the near future I will present you some vinyl rips of finest and rare brasilian music, which are not available on CD or as a vinyl-rip for all I know.

always open minded! feel free to leave a comment if you like or dislike the music, the review or just this blog in general. make the monologue a dialogue! (and receiving some responses keeps me motivated)

normally I try to post new stuff once a week, quality not quantity, so the front page shows you the posts of the last month, but there is a lot more to discover, just click your way thru the older entries.
