[Music] Erlon Chaves – Procura​-​se Uma Virgem OST


Procura-se Uma Virgem turned out to be a very pleasant slab of easy/cheesy/sleazy listening from soundtrack composer Erlon Chaves, who should have been working in Europe, where is mellow style would have been perfect for directors like Jess Franco and Mario Bava.

[Music] Jaze Baqti – Evidence Of Time Travel


There seems to be little information from the prolific French act Jaze Baqti, but they glide effortlessly between genres like Acid Jazz, Funk and Hip-Hop.

[Music] Nu Guinea – Nuova Napoli


Nu Guinea are a couple of lads from a city which has given me a lot of pleasure and a fair amount of both headaches and heartaches, Naples.  Massimo Di Lena and Lucio Aquilina will be releasing their latest album, an homage of sorts to their hometown, on April 7th.

The one track they have offered as a sample of what’s to come is a very funky affair reminiscent of the work of Tony Allen.  You hear disco, funk and Afrobeat rolled into a rather amazing package.

Nor so many other deserving artists who don’t offer up a plate of decent, non-offensive pseudo-soul, hip-hop or tacky dance music. Ah, well.
