Mamao's Brake/ Ah Que Legal (IG Culture & 22a Remixes)
No of Discs:
Slip Sleeve (CD or Vinyl)
Azymuth drummer Ivan Mamao Contis forthcoming self-titled solo project, remixed by West London broken beat pioneer IG Culture for a scorching club monster, alongside three future-funk remixes from 22a records family Tenderlonious, Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Jeen Bassa. Ivan Mamao Conti is one of the greatest drummers on earth. A true rhythmic innovator, he is Brazils answer to Tony Allen, Steve Gadd, and Bernard Purdie (no small claim considering the countrys famed samba connection). Known by most as one third of Azymuth, his career spans far beyond with over half a centurys worth for recordings with the likes of Milton Nascimento, Eumir Deodato, Marcos Valle, Hyldon, Gal Costa and Jorge Ben. More recently Mamao recorded an album with hip-hop royalty Madlib under the shared moniker Jackson Conti. Now aged seventy, Mamaos work ethic is as strong as ever. In anticipation of a new Ivan Conti solo album set for release in 2017, Far Out Recordings have commissioned a series of remixes to be spread across two separate 12s. The first is a strictly London affair, with a fiery broken-boogie club monster from West London pioneer IG Culture, joined by the signature future-funk of 22a Records family Tenderlonious, Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Jeen Bassa. The second 12 will host remixes from Max Graef, Glenn Astro and Contours.
