PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED & VINYL-ONLY REMIXES & RE-EDITS OF AZYMUTH’S ‘AURORA’ BY SOME OF DANCE MUSIC’S STALWARTS SUCH AS 4HERO, ASHLEY BEEDLE AND ZED BIAS. THE RELEASE CONTAINS A BONUS CD WITH THE FULL-LENGTH ORIGINAL ‘AURORA’ ALBUM .

Disc 1
Far Out specially commissioned this electrifying selection of remixes and re-edits from a host of today’s most in-demand producers to pay homage to these now classic cuts laid down by the masters of ‘Samba Doido’ (Crazy Samba). All having been heavily influenced by Azymuth's historical career at the forefront of Brazilian Jazz funk taken global, this disc presents the heart and soul of Rio's favourite sons, reworked and reignited by the imaginations of a generation of artists they had such a huge effect on. A fitting tribute to these true legends of Brazilian music.

Disc 2
Returning to their unique sound, this Bonus recording was originally released in 2011 to celebrate over 35 years of Azymuth as “arguably the most successful band to come out of Brazil”. The signature swing samba is heavier than ever with a string of unforgettable tunes, from dance-floor fillers and lush jazz to hard, grooving samba funk and warped psychedelia. Together the original three piece Azymuth orchestra has made their strongest album since the seminal recordings ‘Azimuth’ and ‘Light as a Feather’. Discover why musicians as diverse as Friendly Fires and Madlib are addicted to this innovative boogie monster.

Pianist, songwriter, and band leader Jose Roberto Bertrami (1946-2012) is recognised as one of the legends of Brazilian music, and one of its most influential keyboardists. He is responsible for the intensity and maverick approach of Azymuth. Ivan Conti is Azymuth’s drummer and percussionist. Known as Mamao, he is a spontaneous and incredibly energetic drummer, and the real hardcore Carioca of the trio. He has collaborated on a number of major projects in recent years including 2008’s Jackson Conti ‘Sujinho’ album with Madlib. On bass is Alex Malheiros, who learnt his trade playing with the master of Brazilian swing, Ed Lincoln. Alex is respected in Brazil as one of the original groove masters. The threesome is responsible for twenty five studio albums from 1975 crate-digger favourite debut ‘Azimuth’ (Far Out re-issued in 2007); to 1979’s ‘Light as a Feather ‘(which spawned ‘Jazz Carnival’); and ‘80s classics including ‘Telecommunication’. One of the biggest jazz funk tunes of all time, ‘Jazz Carnival’, spent eight weeks in the UK Top 20 in 1980 and was a Number 1 hit around the world in the dance charts.
