New Reissues | Ana Mazzotti - Ninguem Vai Me Segurar (1974) & Ana Mazzotti (1977)

An artist as imaginative and unique as Ana Mazzotti doesn’t come around often. Dubbed a “super-musician” by fellow Brazilian virtuoso Hermeto Pascoal, Mazzotti’s short but rich musical career culminated in just two studio albums: Ninguem Vai Me Segurar (1974), and Ana Mazzotti (1977). Outside circles of Brazilian funk aficionados, these two gems of spellbinding samba-jazz, lysergic funk and trippy bossa have remained relatively obscure.

New Reissue | Dila - Dila (1971)

Release date: 26th July 2019 | Format: 180g Vinyl LP Far Out Recordings proudly presents the first and only album from the mysterious Brazilian vocal sensation Dila.

Between producing Marcos Valle’s new album Sempre and Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti’s critically acclaimed Poison Fruit, amongst a host of other projects, Daniel Maunick returns with another three-track EP of deep, intricate dancefloor weapons under his own name. Following the instant sell-out A Vicious Circle EP, which saw support from the likes of Derrick Carter, Volcov, Carista and Pablo Valentino, Sombra Do Dragão further teases Maunick’s forthcoming album release for Far Out Recordings. Submerged deep-house slammer ‘Dirty Trix’, hypnotic stripped-back Afro groove ‘Until The End’ and wild cinematic batucada title track ‘Sombra Do Dragão’ continue the precedent of sky-high quality, underground...
