Thanks to a steady stream of compilations and reissues, many are now familiar with the contribution made by Brazilian artists to the sounds of '70s jazz-funk and disco. This brilliant compilation takes a different approach, instead shining a light on the country's instrumental funk scene during that most exciting of musical decades. Largely made up of unknown cuts by obscure artists, the material combines the horn-toting, Hammond-sporting heaviness of U.S soul and funk from the period with the sun-kissed colour and jaunty swing of indigenous Brazilian music. It's a hugely attractive hybrid sound that guarantees thrills and spills throughout, not to mention a string of highlights. Check it out for yourself: we guarantee you won't be disappointed.
