Ivan Conti – Mamao’s Brake ( Tenderlonious Remix)

Via Far Out Recordings: Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti is one of the greatest drummers on earth. A true rhythmic innovator, he is Brazil’s answer to Tony Allen, Steve Gadd, and Bernard Purdie (no small claim considering the country’s famed samba connection). Known by most as one third of Azymuth, his career spans far beyond with over half a century’s worth for recordings with the likes of Milton Nascimento, Eumir Deodato, Marcos Valle, Hyldon, Gal Costa and Jorge Ben. More recently Mamao recorded an album with hip-hop royalty Madlib under the shared moniker ‘Jackson Conti’.

Now aged seventy, Mamao’s work ethic is as strong as ever. In anticipation of a new Ivan Conti solo album set for release in 2017, Far Out Recordings have commissioned a series of remixes to be spread across two separate 12”s. The first is a strictly London affair, with a fiery bruk-boogie club track from West London pioneer IG Culture, joined by the signature future-funk of 22a Records family Tenderlonious, Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Jeen Bassa. The second 12” of Ivan Conti remixes will host reworks from Max Graef, Glenn Astro and Contours.

 

 Mamao’s Brake/ Ah Que Legal (IG Culture & 22a Remixes) is out January 27th (pre-order).
