Kassin +2 (Moreno Veloso/Domenico)Futurismo ... LP
Trama/Luaka Bop, 2006. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
The long-awaited 3rd album in the trilogy of modern Brazilian grooves from the trio that's recorded under the names of Moreno Veloso and Domencio – and the first one to be issued under the name of Kassin! Following the format of the other variations in the series, Kassin takes the lead here – singing beautifully with a breathy sound that reminds us a lot of Brazilian funk recordings from the 70s – particularly the most spacious, most mellow funk of Joao Donato or Marcos Valle – both of whom seem to have a bit of influence on the sound here! Donato actually guests on Fender Rhodes on one track – and there's some other guest stars here who really keep things interesting – but the main star in the spotlight is Kassin, and he really blows our mind with the depth of his work on the set! The record's a real instant classic from Brazil – a sublime blend of electronic pop, subtle funk, and jazzy flourishes – all put together with a whole that's far greater than the sum of its parts. Genius throughout – with tracks that include "Ponto Final", "O Seu Lugar", "Esquecido", "Pra Lembrar", "Quando Nara Ri", "Agua", "Namorados", "Homem Ao Mar", "Samba Machine", and "Antes Da Chuva". US version features 4 bonus tracks – "Tranquilo (super stereo sound system)" from the Japanese pressing and "Lake Line", "Bow Road", and "Ya Ya Ya" that are only on this version.

✨✧ Jair RodriguesA Nova Bossa Por Jair Rodrigues ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful surprise from Jair Rodriguez – the kind of an album we never expected to like so much! Sure, Jair cut some fantastic work in earlier years, but we really weren't prepared for the quality of this one – as the set's honestly the greatest record we've heard from him in decades, done in a style that really lets his magical vocals come to the forefront, in that angularly soulful approach that often gets buried on other modern recordings. Tracks skip along with a light mix of samba and bossa rhythms – and although there's some electric instrumentation on the set, the overall feel is nice and rootsy – and slightly funky at a few moments. Titles include "Rio", "Se E Tarde Me Perdoa", "Falso Amor", "Voce Abusou", "O Barquinho", and "Este Seu Olhar". CD

VariousWhat's Happening In Pernambuco – New Sounds Of The Brazilian Northeast ... CD
Luaka Bop, Late 90s/Early 2000s. Used ... $6.99
There's been plenty happening in Pernambuco in recent years – a rich blending of styles that's made the region of Brazil a more important musical hot spot than Rio or San Paulo! The sounds of Pernambuco have been simmering under for years – and you may well have caught an earful or two from recent releases on the Trama label. But until this set, most of the region's brilliance has never been fully presented properly to a non-Brazilian audience – and as the label did two decades back with their initial Brazilian compilations, Luaka Bop does a wonderful job of opening up the Pernambuco groove to a much wider audience! Most of the work here mixes older roots with newer touches – often a bit of electronics next to acoustic percussion, or raspily soulful vocals next to tighter instrumentation – that unique sort of balance that's always been present in Brazilian music from the 60s onward, but which is currently done better in Pernambuco more than anywhere else. Titles include "Poesia Da Barro" by Alex Sant Anna, "Amigos Bons" by Junio Barreto, "Cobrinha" by Tine, "Vale Do Juca" by Siba, "Pode Me Chamar" by Eddie, "Maroca" by Mundo Livre, "Carimbaeo" by Nacao Zumbi, "Instante Feliz" by Vates E Violas, "Erectuos Cactus" by Cabruera, "O Pobre Dos Dentes De Ouro" by Cidadao Instigad, and "Cabidela" by Mombojo.

✨✧ Ultramagnetic MCsFunk Your Head Up ... CD
Mercury, 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
Follow up to Critical Beatdown with solid, funky production by Ced Gee and Moe Love, and Kool Keith just being Kool Keith – giving it some crazy charm that a lot people just weren't ready for at the time! Their first major label record, which seemed to take forever to come out, we recall a lot of folks being disappointed with this at the time – but there's ultimately a lot of quality cuts here! "Poppa Large", "Chorus Line Pt. 2", "Make It Happen" were favorite cuts from the outset, and with the benefit of hindsight and without burden of expections, other great ones include "Funk Radio", "Stop Jockin Me", "Bust The Facts" and "I Like Your Style" with many other standout moments. It's got a whopping 23 in all, and other tracks include "MC Champion", "Go For Yourz", "Message From The Boss", "Pluckin Cards", "You Ain't Real", "Moe Love On The ! & 2" and "Porno Star". CD
(Out of print. Spine has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ VariousBeat Classic ... CD
DC Recordings (UK), Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent set of old school hip hop! The set features some extremely rare early singles – the sort that we always sell for a fortune when we find them, which is just about never. And although a few of these have been reissued before, the overall quality of the package is excellent – and the whole thing's all legit, and reissued with super-high quality! Titles include "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee & K Rob, "Funky" by Ultramagnetic MCs, "Triple Threat" by Z-3 MCs, "Throwdown" by Disco Four, "Never Satisfied" by Hi-Fidelity Three, "It's Life" by Rock Master Scott, "It's Your Rock" by Fantasy Three, "B-Beat Classic" by B+, "Something Fresh To Swing To" by Levi 167, "Shout" by MC Craig G, and "Just Call Us Def" by Steady B.
