Limited-edition quintuple "Brazil 45s" boxset curated by one our favourites DJ Format (Who played our festival Ventnor Fringe a few years back), and featuring ten tracks unearthed on his most recent crate-digging trip to South America.
DJ Format has a very distinct stamp to his own productions and mixtapes, and that can be clearly seen in the coherent theme he has applied to his selections for this release.
He has chosen 10 funk-psyche-break-beat Brazilian nuggets from the '60s and early '70s, and included wonderful artists such as The Modern Tropical Quintet, Manito, Free-son, and Marisa Rossi, to name a few.
It is a body of work that fits together perfectly and shines a light on some perhaps forgotten artists that deserve attention and praise.
This collection will appeal to fans of DJ Format, those with a knowledge of Brazilian music, and even the first time buyer just wanting to discover something new.
Originally releases for Record Store Day this 5 x 45s collection comes in a box designed by Owen Tozer.
