Far Out Recordings
With his first album in over twenty years, and the first to be released on vinyl since his 1984 classic The Human Factor, “Mamão” shares his zany carioca character across eleven tracks of rootsy electronic samba and tripped out jazz, beats and dance music. Featuring Alex Malheiros and Kiko Continentino on a number of tracks, the Azymuth lifeblood runs deep, but venturing into the modern discotheque (as Mamão would call it), “Poison Fruit” also experiments with sounds more commonly associated with house and techno, with the help of London based producer Daniel Maunick (aka Dokta Venom) and “Mamão“‘s son Thiago Maranhão.
Take a bite of “Mamão“’s psychoactive Papaya and join the maestro on a weird and wonderful stroll through the Brazilian jungle.
United by a love for the music of “Mamão” and Azymuth, the CD and digital edition also feature the previously released remixes and dubs from some of today’s most forward-thinking producers with a penchant for percussion, including IG Culture, the 22a crew, Max Graef and Glenn Astro.
