20 years in any game is no mean feat. But in the music industry, it deserves a knighthood. Far Out knows this, and they are celebrating their double decade digits with this incredible project that taps into the very roots of the label's original inspiration. Armed with some of Brazil, the US and the UK's best performers and working closely with Brazilian arrangers Jose Roberto and Arthur Verocai, this is an immaculate document that explores every corner of Latin and western funk, soul and disco. Ranging from the incredible orchestration of "Keep Believing" (notably Theo Parrish's translation) to the contemporary house-tinged soul and funk bubbles of "Don't Cha Know He's Alright" and the delicate balance of squidgy synth boogie and Mancini strings on "A Disco Supreme", this is far more than a celebration of Far Out's 20th year, but a celebration of the very best music and musicians, too.
