✨✧ Attica Blues/Shinichi OsawaOh La La La ... CD
Toys Factory (Japan), 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful bit of funkiness from Attica Blues and Shinichi Osawa from Mondo Grosso! The CD's a 7 track e.p. – with 6 mixes of the heavenly soul cut "Oh La La La", a remake of Tina Marie's classic, done with heavy hip hop beats, great warm instrumental samples, and excellent female vocals, sung in English. The CD also contains the excellent track "What Are You Gonna Do Now", another great soulful groover with vocals by Roba El-essawy. Great stuff, and packaged in a cool gatefold cover! CD

BatidaDois ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. Used ... $7.99
The second album from Batida, and even more crackling than the first – bristling beats, bubbling electronics, and a strongly Brazilian undercurrent – all blended together in the best contemporary styles we've been hearing from the Soundway label of late! Vocals are by a shifting lineup of singers, but there's a core sound that always holds fast – thanks to creative production from Pedro Coquenao, who mixes favela-styled elements with a more thoughtful, intellectual approach that almost reminds us of the late Trama Records at their best. Things are nicely skittish overall – and titles include "Luxo", "Bantu", "Cooking Ugali", "Fica Atento", "La Vai Maria", "Chat With Mr Ochieng", and "Ceu". (Global Grooves, New Grooves) CD

Don TikiForbidden Sounds Of Don Tiki ... CD
Taboo, 1997. Used ... $6.99
Better than you might think – and a sparkling selection of recent exotica work that's very much in the best tradition of Martin Denny or Les Baxter, but which also goes far beyond that style, into a wealth of groovy modes that also hits some great 60s soundtrack moments! The first few tunes are very much in a late 50s Capitol/Liberty mode – but as the album progresses, it hits a style that's much more than you'd expect from the exotic cover – kind of a blend of Lalo Schifrin-type grooves with some bossa and 60s LA jazz influences. The album's got some killer percussion by Carlinhos De Oliveira, and solid jazz basis to some of the playing on the best tracks – a feature that takes the record way past the simple retro mode that usually ruins a project of this nature. Titles include "Exotica 97", "Close Your Eyes", "Hot Like Lava", "Barbi In Bali", "Clutch Cargo Cult", "Da T'ing He Grow", and "Itchy Palms". (Now Sound, New Grooves) CD

✨✧ VariousTrip Do Brasil Vol 2 – Still Mixing Brazilian Vibes With Electronic Beatz ... CD
Small (France), 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Brazilian vibe continues to spread worldwide, as a host of French and European producers go to town on a great set of tracks tinged with the sound of Brazil! This one's a lot more open-ended than some of the other sets on the market with a similar approach, in that the tracks don't necessarily focus on the dancefloor, so much as they expand the groove for a wider variety of experiences. Of course, there's still more than a few toe-tappers on the set – very much in the best style of work on Compost in a similar vein. Titles include "Brazil.com" by Isolee, "Non Fatiguing Natural Silk" by WR, "Ibis Vermelho" by Rom, "My Little Brazilian Pony" by Dr Rockit, "Tridade" by Alex Kid feat Jerome Badini, "Jelba" by Russ Gabriel, "Obrigado" by The Deal, "Bahia Blues" by DJ Spinna, "Tiu Ba La Quieba" by Boyz From Brazil, and "Kotu Rete" by Mental Remedy.
