This set includes songs that for long-term lovers of Brazilian music will perhaps come as no surprise, while for other listeners it might be a set with no familiar music. I tried to make it different by not confining what is 'Brazilian' only to music styles commonly associated with the country, while that is certainly the focus of the first part. One can obviously compile a selection entirely of non-Brazilian bossa nova or of music that came from the country that sounds nothing like what we would expect.
I take 'Brazilian' here to mean more of a feeling rather than a geographical place - though the majority of those songs are written and recorded in Brazil, many others are only samba- and bossa nova-influenced or they just include samples from Brazilian music. Mixing-wise it's a bit of an experiment on two turntables used with Serato and one Akai LPD8 MIDI controller. For your listening pleasure!
