AFRO-BRAZILIAN MUSIC & RHYTHMS FROM 1976 – 2016
COMPILED BY TAHIRA
For our first Afro-Brazilian compilation we teamed up with Tahira, one of São Paulo’s most active DJs and music collectors. Levanta Poeira (Afro-Brazilian music & rhythms from 1976 – 2016) highlights a few of his favourite DJ pearls and encompasses Brazil’s various regional musical styles influenced by African and Amerindian forms.
While most foreign music lovers tend to approach Brazilian music by having American music genres such as Jazz, Soul, Funk, Disco as a reference, Tahira’s personal wish was to showcase the rich musical roots and facets of his country by featuring carefully selected artists and bands from the past 4 decades. Most of these tracks will be made available on vinyl for the very first time with a highlight certainly being Tahira’s “A Toda Menina Baiana” remix (vinyl-only) of one of Brazil’s absolute musical heroes, Gilberto Gil.

“...a refreshing, perspective-shifter that will doubtless become summer essentials for DJs across Europe.”

TWELVE INCH JAMS 002 OUT NOW!
JAMS002 sounds the bell for the second round of the series including a 10 years re-issue of the classic Sam Irl cut “You Don’t Feel Enough”. Originally released as a B1 tune on his “African Dance EP” debut on Pulver Records in 2007, this jazzy house gem found its way into the record bags of many influential DJs over the years. From Session Victim, Glenn Astro, Max Graef to Hodini... the record never disappeared in club sets but certainly from discogs a good while ago.
So it was about time to give the tune a second life and finally press it on the format it deserves - a whole 12” side. The German production duo Session Victim are well-known fans of the track describing it as their secret weapon playing it in quite many DJ sets for years, including their 2015 appearance for Mixmag’s DJ Lab.
Hence, it is a great pleasure that Session Victim contributed a remix to the new release. Their absolutely elegant and groove-driven version with a charming 90’s touch to it makes a brillant counterpart to the original with its jazzy piano-, drum- and double bass samples leading to an epic synth break that regularly causes ecstatic moments on the dancefloor.
TWELVE INCH JAMS 001 OUT NOw!
Sometimes you produce a track with nothing but a dancefloor and a good sound system in mind. “Twelve Inch Jams” is offering you just that - strictly two A side tunes for the floor cut at 45 revolutions per minute. Jazz & Milk pays tribute to this classy release format with their new 12” vinyl series. Each record comes in a hand silk-screened printed and stamped sleeve!
The series starts off with members of the label family - Vienna’s Sam Irl and the man behind Jazz & Milk, Dusty. The two not only share a good friendship, but also the love for raw and sample-based house music tunes produced on the MPC. They got together and created these jams in two nightly sessions.
Our friends at Music Is My Sanctuary have premiered the track "Pick Up The Pieces"!
