about

"Cutting-edge hip-hop, edgy afrobeat and drowsy dub" (4/5) THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

"Brazilian DJ and collector Rodrigo Brandao curated this compilation with an ear for variety -- and deep knowledge" THE LA TIMES

"Fiendishly complicated rhythms are combined from junkyard drums, tin-can percussion, squelchy basslines and samples of Afro-Brazilian folksongs" (4/5) METRO

"Another excellent compilation from Mais Um Discos" GILLES PETERSON

++++++++++++++++++++

Dao∙ra (adj.) Brasilian. Slang. 1. Sao Paulo term for something that’s dope.

Daora is a 32 track collection of the freshest hip-hop, leftfield beats, afrobeat and dub-influenced sounds from Brasil.

Compiled by respected Sao Paulo beat-head Rodrigo Brandao – who has collaborated with members of The Roots, Afro-beat master Tony Allen, producer Prince Paul (De La Soul) and artists from the Ninja Tune and Big Dada stables – Daora features 32 tracks that represent the musicians, MCs and beat-heads making some of the most thrilling urban music in “the alternative lanes of Brasil’s third world megalopoli”.

Rodrigo explains: "Blending both the foundations of boom-bap and Brasilian rhythmic and melodic heritage, Daora is an introduction to the most cutting-edge beat culture + percussive oriented music coming out of Brasil today.”

With a mix of samba roots and laidback lyrical flow, Espião’s ‘Cada Um, Cada Um’ starts the journey into Brazilian beats, rhymes and life on disc one with other highlights including a spiritual offering from Brazilian superstar MC Criolo & M Takara 3’s cowbell-driven chaotics. Disc two takes a more Afro and dubwise direction kicking off with Rodrigo Campos’s Afro-beat homage to Bahia, the African heart of Brazil, before taking in other highlights such as hyped Brazilian orchestra Bixiga 70’s rattling Afro-Latin banger and the Tom Zé written track ‘Musico’ by Lucas Santtana.
