Stateside have produced quite the compilation here, literally thanks to a vault of rare and Brazilian funk and disco from the larger-than-life Warner imprint. Where do we even start? Well, there are eleven solid Brazilian dance grooves by the country's finest talents, and most of them hard to come by on vinyl these days. There are too many favourites on here, but the ones that we've left ton repeat are: Gilberto Gil's carnival anthem "Today Menina Baiana", the gloriously deep and tropical "Maria Fumanca" by Banda Black Rio, Azymuth's "Circo Marimbondo", and the jazz-funk masterpiece "From The Lonely Afternoon" by Flora Purim. Sublime.
