 Marcos Valle and Azymuth unite for a very special, one-off European tour this summer!

Azymuth | Azimuth LP Repress

Azymuth | Azimuth LP Repress

Vinyl LP shipping now from the Far Out Shop | Bandcamp We're happy to announce we have repressed Azymuth's cult classic debut album, following overwhelming popular demand. Azimuth was the blueprint for the band's own 'samba doido'/ 'crazy samba' sound: an electric blend of spacious jazz with heavy funk and traditional Brazilian rhythms. Originally released in the summer of 1975, it was a minor commercial success selling around 200,000 copies, but it's now recognised as an essential piece of Brazilian musical history. Surely the rawest and funkiest of Azymuth's albums, every track exudes the brimming energy of three exceptionally creative young musicians from Rio, with their...

Azymuth | Fênix (Ron Trent Remix)

Azymuth | Fênix (Ron Trent Remix)

Rivalling their legendary output from the ‘70s onwards, Brazilian jazz-funk pioneers Azymuth’s latest album Fênix saw the band on top form, with their trademark samba doido (crazy samba) sounding as slick as ever. Since then, we've commissioned a special one-off remix for the project, from Chicago house legend Ron Trent, who has long cited Azymuth as musical heroes and one of his biggest influences. With a toughened groove and gorgeous swirls of synth and pad embellishments, Ron’s remix takes Azymuth’s futurist-disco even deeper... Out 16th June. Pre-order on 12" vinyl and digitally from the Far Out Shop | Bandcamp
