Overview

Gilles Peterson's mix to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Far Out label unites old and new with ease -- which is no wonder, from the man equally tuned in to dusty crates of previously forgotten LPs as well as the newly shrink-wrapped dubplate. Focused on the music of Brazil (obviously), Brazilika resurrects forgotten classics -- to cite just two: Jose Mauro's piece of string melancholia, "Obnoxious," and a version of the Doris Monteiro hit "E Isso Ai" by Sidney Miller (who wrote the song) -- alongside tracks from the '90s and 2000s (like remixes by Domu and Osunlade) that originally came out on Far Out, not just their publishing
eissue arm. It's hardly a surprise that the mix is packed with gems, but Peterson continues to astound with the way he unites a vast array of different music with ease. (As most fans know, Brazil is hardly a uniform music culture.) Also worthy of being called out is "Quem Sou Eu" by the unknown Krishnanda, which brings together a little of the jazz avant-garde with electronics and some skewed Tom Zé type of songwriting.
