Last year latin specialist label Far Out Recordings released a home grown disco extravaganza double LP under their own Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra pseudonym, featuring groovy arrangements of Azymuth’s late Maestro José Roberto Bertrami and legendary Arthur Verocai alongside a host of other Brazilian musical icons.
Continuing in their vinyl-only series, today marks the release of some stunning unreleased FOMDO tracks which have been criminally collecting dust in the label’s back office for too long. With an already impressive list of names the label has had the pleasure of working with (including Marcellus Pittman, Theo Parrish and Mark Pritchard), Far Out continue to wow with the acquisition of Detroit House pioneer and Slum Village DJ Andrés. We’re delighted to give you the first listen of the deep-house innovator’s ‘Give it To Me’ edit, which is also receiving the remix treatment from DJ Spinna.
Coming from a Cuban-Jamaican background and having played lots of latin percussion in his youth, Dez immediately sounds at home working with Brazilian music. Thus, it is through a spine of clave rhythm cowbell and hi-hats that Andrés keeps the Brazilian and disco feel in a track that will do well not to leave an impression of his irresistible brand of house music. As the understated bass line and vocal hooks from Mia Mendez’s take a hold, you know exactly where this boogie is going; hips are sure to be swinging and feet stepping on many occasions to this future classic.
FOMDO10 from Far Out Recordings is available now on heavyweight vinyl and can be copped from all good record stores.
