Veteran Brazilian legends Azymuth probably never expected to still be winning over new generations of fans 40 years after they formed, but that is indeed what they are doing. Released back in 2011, Aurora was another of their critically and commercially successful modern LPs, harking back to the disco/jazz/pop hybrid that they first began pursuing in the 1980s. Now it gets the remix treatment from a wide variety of names including the retro lounge of 4Hero, the organic disco of Harvey, the intense techno of Kirk Degiorgio and deep disco house from Ashley Beedle.
Laranjeiras (afro latin London mix) - (7:49) 108 BPM

Stupendously prolific Brazilian outfit Azymuth head back to their Far Out heyday where they released a total of six albums between 1995-2005. Tracks such as the jitterbug organ funk jam "O Lance" and the stomping slap-bass jazz boogie sound as timeless as ever but it's the remixes from this period that tell the most interesting tale. Unless you collected all Azymuth singles there's a chance you haven't caught some of these... Hearing Mark Pritchard in full Chi-town chugging house mode, the stripped-back loungecore steps of London Elektricity and Roni Size getting up to live bass mischief is a history lesson in itself. A rich sonic experience throughout, if you didn't catch this in 2006, now is most certainly the time.
