What exactly is Boogie? Is it a genre, an era, a style? Colours, clothes, textures are all part of its make up. Boogie is the “top shelf” music of the 80s. Anything from this era that brings along Moog synths, vocoders, DX7s, or triggered Oberheim drum sounds, is Boogie! Brasil has a huge archive of underground dancefloor heat. Dierent styles of music ranging from Macumba to Samba, MPB to Pop, Electro to early Hip-Hop, were all stung by this Brasilian “Boogie Bug”, cleverly orchestrated by geniuses of the style; Robson Jorge, Lincoln Olivetti, Junior Mendes, Mister Sam, Sergio Sá, to name a few, were the backbone of uncountable projects by big names of Brasil´s pop and underground music scene during the 80s.

This compilation brings together a bunch of non-obvious “compactos” (33 RPM 7” singles), most of them, promos, which never saw the light of record store shelves, but instead sat for years in the dead-vaults of radio stations or ended up in second hand shops, flea markets, church basements to junkyards. Rare boogie hits from Brazilian titans Tim Maia, Cassiano and Tony Bizarro rub shoulders with underground artists like Elizio de Buzios with his only recording, the funky boogie joint “Tamanqueiro”, Gaby Whiskadão's disco hit “Super Amor”, the B-Boy Crew Electric Boogies with their very fresh early 80s rap hit “Break Mandrake” as well as the very obscure group called Let´s Dance featuring their version of “Riguera” sung in Portuguese entitled “Dance com a Gente”.

Even after so many years, Brasil’s most obscure boogie gem is yet to be found on a long diggin’ session thru thousands of records full of weird looking haircuts, somewhere near São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Keep diggin' guys! 

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Maximum respect to SDB Discos! Each and every one of these Brazilian boogie rarities is a total bomb, packed with South American swing, tropical heat and loads of soul!
