This Compilation Showcases Obscure Brazilian Boogie From The 1980s
Somatoria Do Barulho Discos collects rare tracks featuring “Moog synths, vocoders, DX7s, or triggered Oberheim drum sounds.”
Want to discover some of the rarest grooves from the South American continent in one beautifully packaged compilation? The Brazilian label Somatoria Do Barulho Discos just announced their amazing10 Mais Boogie Vol. 1 compilation. They dug through “thousands of records full of weird-looking haircuts, somewhere near São Paolo or Rio De Janeiro,” all of which are all unbelievable boogie cuts.
Brazil’s disco legacy might be a little more obscure than that of its North American counterpart—but that’s only stoked the vinyl collecting fervor within the local scene. In fact, many of the tracks on10 Mais Boogie Vol. 1 previously asked upwards of €110 for a single 7-inch or 12-inch on Discogs.
