A soaring selection of Brazilian groove – selected by the great Gilles Peterson – one of the best collections ever assembled by the world famous DJ! Gilles goes way past the obvious for the sets, which are divided into two discs – one for classic tracks (many of which are actually woefully under-appreciated, in the grand scheme) and a second disc of recent tracks and remixes. The mood is really soaring and soulful throughout – groovy sambas mingle with Brazilian jazz and soul tunes, and cheeky psychedelia-steeped 60s sunshine on the first disc. The mood on disc two is wholly reverent of the samba roots, but it's also awash in modern club grooves – with sputtering post drum & bass, a hip hop beat track sensibility on others, and a straight driving club groove on still others! Disc one (Classicos) includes "Nem Vem Que Nao Tem" by Wilson Simonal
, "Berimbau" by Golden Boys, "No Caminho Do Bem" by Tim Maia, "Serrado" by Djavan, "Nana" by Os Cobras, "Zanzibar" by Sergio Mendos & Brasil '77, "Sob O Mar by Jaime E Nair, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Quarteto Em Cy and more. Disc two (Da Hora) includes "Bob" by Otto (Edu K mix feat Bebel Gilberto), "Menino" by Patricia Marx & 4 Hero, "Parabens" by Marcos Valle, "Green Gold" by Spiritual South, "Malandragem" by Drumagick, "Beyond The Rains" (Drumagick city mix) by Mitchell & Dewbury featuring Billie Godfrey, "Moments Of Lust" by DJ Marky & XRS featuring Vikter Duplaix and more.
