Fumaça Preta

Impuros Fanaticos

    Having made a name for themselves as a cutting edge, genre-bending live and recording act on their debut, Fumaça Preta's 'Impuros Fanáticos' pushes one step further. Crossing psychedelia, free jazz, metal, tambu, voodoo, fado and a lot more, the album is a musical cocktail and a journey of experimentation.

    From the meticulous recording of discarded metalwork in an abandoned factory in the middle of the Spanish desert, to a late night voodoo ritual in a remote village on the Venezuela/Brazil border, to steel drums recorded in a disused military base in Czech Republic, the record has a truly unique sound and feel, whilst retaining the band's frenzied grooves at its core.

    2015 was a year of change for Fumaça Preta. Rising popularity and constant touring created conflicts and changes that translated directly into some of the darker, more contemplative moments on the record. Alex Figueira took over vocals, which expanded the language, with the addition of Spanish, and spectrum with the addition of Spanish and various melodic elements, creating a musical depth beyond that of the first.

    "Fumaça Preta offer a cracked Latin American psychedelia that jives to the wiggier end of Tropicalia... while drinking deep from the Butthole Surfers' manky goblet of insanity" - The Quietus

    "A deranged blend of heavy metal histrionics, tropicalia, psychedelia and shouting in Portuguese." - Financial Times

    "Steaming tropical concoction." - The Wire

    Fumaça Preta

    Fumaça Preta

      Fumaça Preta’s hard hitting, free-wheeling debut LP brings together elements of tropicalia, psychedelic rock, fuzz funk, musique concrete, acid house, radiophonic electronics, hair metal, voodoo and African, Brazilian and Latin rhythms. Beaming down from another planet and sonically stretching across decades, ‘Fumaça Preta’ is released on Soundway Records.

      Fumaça Preta (pronounced Foomassa Pretta, meaning Black Smoke) started as a studio experiment when Alex Figueira, a Portuguese-Venezuelan producer and percussionist, invited some old friends to join him in the tiny analogue studio he built on the back of his house in Amsterdam.

      After producing 2 critically acclaimed 45s, Fumaça Preta continued to work in the Barracão Sound Laboratory, swiftly producing their debut album. All musical boundaries collapsed during recording as the band drew upon their vast array of varied influences.

      Live, Fumaça Preta becomes a quintet that swerves in and out of endless musical avenues but never loses the rock solid heavy psychedelic groove that drives them.
