The single features Marcina’s first work for Far Out and it seamlessly blends her strong distinctive voice with the powerful percussive rhythms of Brazilian Grupo Batuque to produce a smooth, sophisticated London/Rio groove. The track takes Grupo Batuque’s traditional Samba sound and adds vocals, and horns and mixes it all up with some London dance sensibility-provided by Roc Hunter.
On a dancefloor friendly AFRO BEAT tip, Grupo Batuque present the first single from their forthcoming album ‘Africa Brazil’. Their earlier Samba flavoured albums include ‘Samba de Rua’ their soundtrack to the Rio Carnival and last summer’s world cup smash ‘Samba de Futebol’. These recordings have featured some of Brazils percussion legends and have been very well received;
‘Between the Lines’ is creating a big underground buzz, and the acetates have been receiving regular airplay on Radio1 thanks to Gilles Peterson. This, along with the already-strong reputation and popularity of Grupo Batuque should ensure big success for this exciting new release from Far Out.
