A Arte Do Barulho

CD (Item 798035) EMI (Brazil), 2008 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...


Marcelo D2's still looking for the perfect beat, but this time around he's got some great help in his search – a list of heavy duty guests that includes Seu Jorge, Miriam Aydar, Medaphor, Roberto Sa, and Marcos Valle – each of whom get a chance to add strongly to a track on the album! As before, the style's a Brazilian variant of hip hop – heavy beats on the bottom, crisp production throughout, and a fair bit of Portuguese rhymes on the top inflected in ways that are quite different than those on American hip hop. There's a fair bit of warm Brazilian elements in the mix too – percussion and melodies you'd never here up here on a record like this – and although lots have copied Marcelo's approach in recent years, he's still one of the best! Other guests include Thama De Frietas, Stephan Peixoto, and Cabeza De Panda – and titles include "Desabato", "A Arte Do Barulho", "Ela Disse", "Kush", "Meu Tambor", "Minha Missao", "Fala Serio", "Pode Acreditar", "Ativadade Na Laje", and "Afropunk No Valle Do Rap".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1971. Used
Fantastic early work from Tania Maria! This record is one of her first – and it's a beautiful batch of bossa and jazzy tracks, with larger orchestrations by Geraldo Vespar, and lots of nice organ and keyboard work. Maria's voice is very nice, and without the polish of later recordings ... CD
