Plugged into the mainframe of the power station, Antonio returns to the label with a barrage of loner panzer funk and mechanised thrash metal from the shadows of Frankfurt's industrial district. It's a record fed and nurtured among copper coils, rusted voltage boxes, plasma and ionised sweat coming out to breathe among power surges and industrial smog. Four tracks from the heat of the machine. A total submission to your new electrical system. Mastered by Andrea Merlini.

Natural Sciences kick off 2018 with a visceral electroid bullet, label stalwart Antonio with four tracks of galvanized, rocket-propelled power. Frazzled n fried and (unknowingly) paying tribute to that turn of the millennium electro sound favoured by MCR camps Kindergarten and Sequence. Think the Attic on Friday night circa 2002 and you're there. Gas masks not included.

After half a decade of Emotional Rescues the dependable imprint ticks one of the bucket list and treats us to a much needed reissue of rainforest masterpiece "A La Izquierda Del Colibri". A collaborative effort from flute-toting multi-instrumentalist Jorge Reyes and percussion king Antonio Zepeda, the 1986 LP fuses new age textures, ancestral rhythms and shamanic melodies into a mindbending vision quest. Bathing in the same fourth world stream as Jah Wobble, Tri Atma and Paolo Modugni, Reyes fused prehispanic instruments with transcendental electronics, leading us through the undergrowth and into the humid jungle beyond. Pulsating Poly800 bass and DX7 mallets ring through the trees as we scope out an Aztec temple, off-beat guitar and flautal swirls add a little froglicking funk and the organic clatter of Zepeda's percussion ties everything together with tribal mysticism. As a man who shelled out top dollar for an original copy around 18 months ago, you'd think I'd be gutted to see this one make a return to the shelves, but in all honesty, everyone needs to hear this album.


Patrick says: Brush through the digital undergrowth, follow the flautal bird-song, dance to the ancient rhythm and you might just find enlightenment. In an Aztec temple that touches the sky, Jorge Reyes and Antonio Zepeda weave a fourth world spell of future primitive beauty.

Victor Assis Brasil

Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim

Over the course of the 60s, Roberto Quartin released more than 20 albums in Brazil on his label Forma, by artists including the likes of Eumir Deodato, Quarteto Em Cy, Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraës. Selling the rights of Forma to Polygram in 1969, Quartin struck out for pastures new at the dawn of the 1970s with the launch of his self-titled label. Significant works and high-water marks for Brazilian music overall followed in that decade's first year, with "Victor Assis Brasil Plays Antonio Carlos Jobim" and the "Obnoxious". These singular gems in Brazilian music, difficult to categorise yet compellingly haunting, have for too long gone unheard. Unlike Jose Mauro, whose biography is almost completely shrouded in mystery, Victor Assis Brasil's tragically short life is a better known story. He passed away aged just thirty-five, but by this point his status was already cemented as one of Brazil's top players. Gifted his first saxophone by his aunt at the age of fourteen, his debut LP was recorded just four years later, alongside some mercurial greats of Brazilian jazz, Tenorio Jr and Edson Lobo. Following the release of his first two albums, Victor was granted a place to study at Berklee College of Music, and it was during this period he recorded toca antonio carlos jobim upon returning to Brazil in the summer of 1970. At a time in Brazil when the smooth n' easy groove of the bossa beat no longer reflected the inflamed politics of a nation under the cosh of military dictatorship, Victor Assis Brasil morphed Jobim's soothing originals into raw, deep jazz cuts, with the help of Brazilian legends Edison Lobo, Helio Delmiro and Edison Machado. The album's influences spans both American continents, finding a meeting point for Latin jazz and North American post-bop, with Roberto Quartin's perfectionist approach to sound elevating the already incandescent music to divine new heights. Like all Far Out reissues, the album has been remastered from the original tapes, and pressed to high quality heavyweight vinyl.


Patrick says: Beguiling and brilliant, this third LP from Victor Assis Brasil is a masterclass in deep Latin jazz, packing each and every groove with pure expression and feeling.

Antonio Ocasio

Amor Puro - Mandado Del Cielo

Ocasio returns to his own Tribal Winds label with this dedication to Carlos Santana. Electric guitars therefore play quite a role, soloing away beneath the layers of windpipes, native percussion and Amazonian spiritualism.
