Ivan 'Mamao' Conti | Tenderlonious, IG Culture, Reginald Omas Mamode IV & Jeen Bassa remixes

Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti is one of the greatest drummers on earth. A true rhythmic innovator, he is Brazil’s answer to Tony Allen, Steve Gadd, and Bernard Purdie (no small claim considering the country’s famed samba connection). Known by most as one third of Azymuth, his career spans far beyond with over half a century’s worth for recordings with the likes of Milton Nascimento, Eumir Deodato, Marcos Valle, Hyldon, Gal Costa and Jorge Ben. More recently Mamao recorded an album with hip-hop royalty Madlib under the shared moniker ‘Jackson Conti’.

Now aged seventy, Mamao’s work ethic is as strong as ever. In anticipation of a new Ivan Conti solo album set for release in 2017, We've commissioned a series of remixes to be spread across two separate 12”s. Here's the first, a strictly London affair, with a fiery broken-boogie club monster from West London pioneer IG Culture, joined by the signature future-funk of 22a Records family Tenderlonious, Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Jeen Bassa. The second 12” will host remixes from Max Graef, Glenn Astro and Contours.
