This Record Store Day exclusive 7" probably won't pop up on our shores any time soon, but it's a mean taster for something new from Gilles Peterson..
"Taken from Gilles Peterson’s new album project Sonzeira, Southern Freeez, featuring Emanuelle Araújo on vocals, is an electronic bossa re-work of Freeez’s famous UK jazz-funk hit, due for exclusive release on 7” for Record Store Day Saturday 19th April.
The album Sonzeira – Brasil Bam Bam Bam features all new material produced by Gilles Peterson and is the product of him being a fan and a champion of Brazilian music in the club and on the radio for last 25 years; culminating in him bringing together the country’s finest artists all on one record for the very first time - under the artist collective Sonzeira."
Brasil Bam Bam Bam is released 19th May. First official single Brasil Pandeiro, a rework of the original 1940s track written by Assis Valente, out now. Listen here. Watch the album trailer below
