Brazilian drumming legend Ivan ‘Mamão’ Conti will release his new album Poison Fruit on January 25th via Far Out Recordings.

As one-third of cult Rio jazz-funk trio Azymuth, Mamão was at the root of the group’s ‘samba doido’ (crazy samba) philosophy, which warped the traditional samba compass with jazz influences and space-age electronics.

The album follows two 12” remix releases Azul and Mamao’s Brake/ Ah Que Legal which featured reworks from the likes of IG Culture, Max Graef, Glenn Astro and more.

Always one to push the musical boundaries the album “experiments with sounds more commonly associated with house and techno” with the help of London based producer Daniel Maunick (aka Dokta Venom) and Mamão’s son Thiago Maranhão.
