Amplificador – Various Artists (Far Out Recordings)

Amplificador artwork

Label: Far Out Recordings
Cat No: FARO186
Release Date: 13th July 2015
Formats:  CD/ Vinyl/ Digital

Amplificador documents the diverse music blossoming from Brazil’s vivacious musical undergrounds.

This compilation draws together components of Novíssima Música Brasileira (brand new Brazilian music), ranging from afro-grooves to rock, to modern samba and MPB (Brazilian pop music).

The music reaches back across Brazil’s rich musical and cultural traditions. But it also shows the influences of other movements from around the globe, including African music and in particular Afrobeats. Artists such as Abayomy Afrobeat Orchestra from Rio bring with them sounds and rhythms of Candomblé. Zebrabeat Afro-Amazônia Orquestra draw upon traditional instruments such as carimbos and fuse them with Afrobeats to create a unique regional hybrid.

Amplificador is scheduled for release on the 13th July 2015. You can purchase it through Far Out Recordings store.

Dehousy – Unknown Fluids (Resources)

Available to buy now from Juno and all good music outlets.

Dehousy is a ‘rising star of the French Electronic scene.’ (Trax) This is his third EP and it’s out this week on French label Resources.

Hard to categorise. Breaks. Bass. Industrial-flavoured techno. All of the above. Give us your genre suggestions in the comments. Spotify would tell us not to fret about it though.

The EP also includes remixes from Tomás Urquieta, Liar and Trap Door. All worth turning the volume up for.

Favourite tracks: Manda Le and Manda Le (Liar Optimix).

Unknown Fluids follows previous EPs Penpal Ballad (a collaboration with Ana Sia) and 2013’s Feel So Brave.

It’s out now! Available from Juno, iTunes or Beatport.

Find Dehousy on Twitter or Facebook. Here’s the label Resources on Twitter or Facebook.

Here’s the last track off the EP, the Trap Door remix of On The Edge.
