I released a mix in 2005, Fly Points Across The Map, highlighting beats & rhythms from tropical places around the world. 2500 CDs were made & distributed, mostly hand2hand, & the feedback was very positive.
Now, after traveling to 1 Fly Point in particular, I picked up an abundance of fascinating new sounds as well as some funk/soul gems from the 70s. From deep in the Brazilian jungle - concrete & natural - comes a mix of hip-hop, dub, tribal chants & heavy percussion swirled with electronic bass & futuristic rhythms that reflect a new Brazil...hurling towards the future but fighting to keep 1 foot firmly planted in the rich musical roots of their culture. Some songs have never been released.
