Literally a treasure box of Brazilian funk and soul. Veteran digger Greg Caz and Deano Sound have teamed up with Cultures Of Soul to deliver this incredible document of vintage Brazilian music. The Brasileiro boxset contains seven 45's spanning the scope of Brazilian music - from funk to soul, psychedelic and beyond- all selections are extremely funk exceedingly rare in their original presses. Highlights include the blistering psychedelic funk of Antônio Carlos & Jocafi’s “Quem Vem Lá,” the rare groove cut “Bananeira” by Emilio Santiago, Osmar Milito E Quarteto Forma’s “América Latina” as sampled by Madlib, Tom Zé’s killer “Jimmy, Renda-Se,” and many more. From co-compiler Greg Caz - "Without necessarily having a central theme other than funky nuggets from the first half of the 70s, we believe this compilation displays its own particular sense of logic, and that these songs ultimately all sound fantastic together. Regardless of one’s familiarity, or lack thereof, with artists like Antonio Carlos & Jocafi, Os Incríveis, Toni Tornado or Celia, the material on these 45s speaks its own truth and justifies their inclusion here. Many of these were originally available as singles, while others were taken from albums, but all are guaranteed to find their way into many DJ boxes and playlists." Comes in custom case with fold out poster and color booklet featuring detailed liner notes.
