The Ipanemas - Samba Is Our Gift  - First Ever Vinyl Pressing


"Evokes a kinder, gentler version of Rio De Janerio... you can almost imagine hearing the samba choruses beaten out on a street corner... Those Buena Vista Social Club comparisons really aren't so far-fetched" - The Sunday Times

Far Out Recordings kicks off its 30th anniversary celebrations with the long awaited, first ever vinyl pressing of The Ipanemas’ Samba is Our Gift.

 The Ipanemas Samba Is Our Gift Green Vinyl Record Store Day 2024

Originally released in 2006, the album combined Afro-Brazilian-bossa nova with classic vocal samba: a step back in time to 1960s Rio de Janeiro.

The Ipanemas, aka drummer and vocalist Wilson Das Neves and guitarist Neco, were instrumental in breaking bossa nova in the 1950s. In the decades following, they recorded with practically every Brazilian great there is, including Elis Regina, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Wilson Simonal, Chico Buarque & Elza Soares to name a small few.

With a remaster and vinyl cut by Caspar Sutton-Jones, Samba Is Our Gift will be released on vinyl LP for the first time ever, on limited edition green vinyl on 20th April for Record Store Day 2024.

Azymuth Jazz Carnival Full Length Record Store Day 2024

Azymuth - Jazz Carnival (Original Full Length Unedited Mix)


“Their reputation is global and their music speaks volumes” - Mixmag

Celebrating 30 years of Far Out Recordings, Azymuth’s biggest club track from their groundbreaking 1979 album Light As A Feather is reissued on 12” vinyl, in its full length unedited form.

When it was originally released, Azymuth’s disco fusion worldwide hit “Jazz Carnival” stayed in the UK top twenty for eight straight weeks. It was used as the theme music for national broadcasts in Italy and even made it onto Top Of The Pops in the UK. Since then the track has become a mainstay for disco, house, and eclectic DJs like Kerri Chandler, Floating Points, Four Tet, Mr Scruff, Gilles Peterson, Dan Snaith and Danilo Plessow.

First released in 2012, the 10 minute, original full length unedited mix of Jazz Carnival sold out immediately and has become Azymuth’s most in demand dance weapon to date. On the B side, Ashley Beedle and Yam Who? teamed up to rework Azymuth’s 1979 proto house classic for the 21st century, which made the record even more sought after still.

The 12” vinyl of “Jazz Carnival (Original Full Length Unedited Mix)” will be available as a limited edition release on 20th April for Record Store Day 2024.
