João Donato & Donatinho and Joyce, Mauricio Maestro & Nana Vasconcelos announce Record Store Day releases

João Donato & Donatinho

JOÃO DONATO E DONATINHO - SINTETIZAMOR

LIMITED EDITION RSD REISSUE (+POSTER!)

Far Out Recordings proudly presents laid back Brazilian groove maestro Joao Donato’s synth-heavy collaboration with his son Donatinho. Sintetizamor sees the father-son duo jovially hurtle through space and time across ten tracks of sparkling pop, Brazilian boogie and club friendly disco-funk.
Joao Donato has been a hugely influential figure in the development of Brazilian music since the mid-1950’s. He’s played and recorded with virtually every one of his fellow Brazilian masters. Many of his own albums (of which he’s recorded over three-dozen) are regarded with such adulation that ‘cult-favourites’ doesn’t quite cut it.
Aged 82 at the time, Donato’s collaboration with his prodigious, synth obsessed son Donatinho - whose keyboard talents have been called on by the likes of the late Gal Costa, Djavan and Donatinho’s contemporaries such as Diogo Strausz - was originally released back in 2017, as a limited Brazil-only release.
On April 22nd, for Record Store Day 2023, Sintetizamor will be available on vinyl (for the first time outside of Brazil) and CD, from participating stores.

Joyce Mauricio Maestro Nana Vasconcelos Visions Of Dawn Record Store Day

JOYCE MORENO, MAURICIO MAESTRO & NANA VASCONCELOS - VISIONS OF DAWN

LIMITED CLEAR VINYL RSD REISSUE

Recorded in Paris, in 1976, Visions of Dawn is the stunning ‘lost’ Brazilian acid-folk album by Joyce, Nana Vasconcelos and Mauricio Maestro.
First uncovered and released in 2009, the record transfixed Brazilian music lovers and fans of otherworldly psych-folk alike. Led by the sharp lyrics and gorgeous voice of a young Joyce, the trio is completed by the late great Brazilian percussion legend Nana Vasconcelos, and master arranger, producer and bassist Mauricio Maestro.
These beautiful, hazy and understated recordings offer a unique opportunity to sit in on the original sessions of tracks that would later become Brazilian cult-classics, such as uplifting samba-jazz opener 'Banana' and 'Clareana', a lullaby named after Joyce's daughters Clara and Ana. The trippiest moments come from 'Jardim Dos Deuces' (one of Frank Ocean's favourite tracks of all time) and the orgasmic album closer 'Chegeda'.
With vinyl copies increasingly scarce and hard to find, Far Out Recordings is bringing back this cult-classic for Record Store Day 2023 on limited edition clear vinyl.
