Various – Far Out Futebol Brasil review

Proving that no challenge is beyond the incredible crate-diggers at Far Out, in time for the World Cup they’ve put together a selection of songs celebrating the beautiful game, all from a Brazilian perspective. Kicking off with Grupo Batuque’s “Umbabaraumba,” a song previously made famous by Jorge Ben in the ’70s, a swinging bossa-nova underpinned by a bluesy guitar riff and stuffed full of breezy funk.

Sabrina Malheiros’ 2009 single “Connexao” follows and is almost a hybrid of bossa and disco, with vocals taking the lead and joined by big silky strings and brass on the chorus. While “Connexao” is a peach, the footie connection is fairly tenuous. “Brasileiros E Ingleses” however features samples from Brazilian football commentary, and even lays out a long trademark “gooaaall!” at one point. “Na Cadencia do Samba” is even the theme tune to the Brazilian version of Match Of The Day, and a rollicking tune to boot.

Elsewhere, Far Out use some excellent remixes of Brazil’s finest to evoke the passion Brazilian’s feel for the game – Spirtual South’s mix of Azymuth’s mighty “Roda Piao” for example, or ZeroDb’s crazed electro-samba mix of “E Ruim”.
