Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
The third volume in Far Out's series of Brazilian mix albums really opens up the field from previous headliners 4hero and Kenny Dope. Although Andy Votel may frequent the same shops as Marc Mac from 4hero, the music they represent is far different. While Mac's volume featured fusion heavyweights and smooth musicianship from the likes of Azymuth, Votel treats the music as his personal playground -- much as he's done with Welsh psychedelics on Welsh Rare Beat or the hard prog of England's Vertigo label on Vertigo Mixed. He overlays two tracks at once, jumps from one to the next with nothing more than a spacy effect, and usually spins just the best two or three minutes of each ...

All Music Guide - John Bush
The third volume in Far Out's series of Brazilian mix albums really opens up the field from previous headliners 4hero and Kenny Dope. Although Andy Votel may frequent the same shops as Marc Mac from 4hero, the music they represent is far different. While Mac's volume featured fusion heavyweights and smooth musicianship from the likes of Azymuth, Votel treats the music as his personal playground -- much as he's done with Welsh psychedelics on Welsh Rare Beat or the hard prog of England's Vertigo label on Vertigo Mixed. He overlays two tracks at once, jumps from one to the next with nothing more than a spacy effect, and usually spins just the best two or three minutes of each record before moving to the next. Not that most of these records need any added lunacy; they're already stocked with zany fuzz-toned guitars, crazy reverb, and echo effects bouncing around the mix. The tracks all come from Som Livre or RGE, two of the best Brazilian independent labels for tropicalia in the '60s; although they weren't the homes of best-selling artists like Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethânia, or Gilberto Gil, they were putting out sizable hits from Tim Maia, Pery Ribeiro, Marcos Valle, and the aforementioned Azymuth. What's more, freak fans who have already exhausted their Mutantes collections can hear -- and then check out -- some fellow travelers such as Novos Baianos and Os Brazões. Although identification is made more difficult by the uneven sequencing -- most tracks feature parts of two or three songs -- there's no denying Brazilika as one of the most exciting and deepest trips into Brazilian psychedelia yet heard.
