Azymuth | Dear Limmertz / Maracana 12" Reissue

Following the recent release of Azymuth’s new album Fênix, we're proud to announce a 12” reissue of two of the Brazilian mavericks’ heaviest dance cuts, remastered from the original Outubro tapes.

Victor Assis Brasil | Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim

Following the recent reissue of Jose Mauro's Obnoxius, the second release in the treasure trove of the Quartin catalogue, Victor Assis Brasil Plays Jobim, is set for a limited vinyl only release on 24th February 2017.  Unlike Jose Mauro, whose biography is almost completely shrouded in mystery, Victor Assis Brasil’s tragically short life is a better known story. He passed away aged just thirty-five, but by this point his status was already cemented as one of Brazil’s top players.
