Reissue: José Mauro ‎– Obnoxious

Obnóxius by Jose Mauro
“Amazing record. One of my top 5” Floating Points

Via Far Out Recordings: A firm favourite amongst a small circle of deep diggers including Madlib, Gilles Peterson, and Floating Points. José Mauro’s mournful and melancholic vocals create a dark, brooding atmosphere that stands in contrast to the usual joyfulness and high-spirited rhythm of the more prominent Brazilian music of the era.      

Despite this air of foreboding, Mauro’s confident baritones, chord patterns, and sumptuous arrangements have the ability to induce in the listener an almost trance-like state of ecstasy. Mauro’s long hidden masterpiece, a complex and uniquely stunning work is being offered the chance to be heard by the wider audience it has always deserved. A second Jose Mauro release, A Viagem Des Horas, compiling more incredible tracks unreleased in Mauro’s lifetime, will follow, alongside other unreleased jewels from the Quartin catalogue, from the likes of Piri and Victor Assis Brasil.
