Brazilian Fusion Band Azymuth Prep New Album, Release 'Outubro' Reissue

"Azymuth are back in the studio recording a brand new album! In anticipation, we're reissuing the band’s seminal 1980 album Outubro: mixed and mastered from the original tapes and pressed onto 180g vinyl (also available on CD and digitally).

Outubro began Azymuth’s run of prolific output for Milestone Records throughout the 80's. Typifying the consummate craftsmanship of the three members’ performances - each with such distinct personality and together so perfectly balanced - together they colour the expressionist fusion of samba rhythm, jazz progression, funk attitude and psychedelic electronics. From Alex Malheiros’ earth-shaking slap-bass on ‘Dear Limmertz’, which was to become a hit on London’s underground disco and jazz-dance club scenes alike, to the late maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami’s genial melodic Rhodes excursions on the vocoder laden, samba-jazz masterpiece ‘Un Amigo’, while Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti’s signature swing on ‘Maracana’ exemplifies the root of Azymuth’s ‘samba doidoi’ (crazy samba) philosophy.

Azymuth will be playing at Dekmantel Festival Amsterdam on 4-7th August alongside a star studded line up that includes Tony Allen, Theo Parrish and Jeff Mills. We're also very excited to announce that the guys will embark on a European tour in October/ November 2016 to support the release of their new and unheard forthcoming album release." - Far Out Recordings
