Various ‘Brazilian Beats Brooklyn’ UK CD/LP (Mr Bongo)

The latest in Mr Bongo’s Brazilian Beats compilation series focuses on some of the favourite vintage grooves played at the weekly party sessions, Brazilian Beats Brooklyn hosted in Brooklyn by DJs Sean Marquand and Greg Gaz. With 22 tracks included there’s a lot to take in but Silvio Cesar’s soul groover ‘A Festa’ and Helio Matheus’ ‘Mais Kriola’ with it’s spacey keys shine through immediately. Well worth purchasing for these 2 tracks alone!
