CON ALMA 01: Trepanado (Selvagem / Selva Discos)

By 31 August, 2020

Trepanado is the stage name of Augusto Olivani, one of the founders and current commander of the Selvagem party collective, and boss of Selva Discos label. Throughout its 8-year existence, Selvagem has consistently been one of the continent’s most influential and important labels, showcasing an anarchic amalgam of obscure House, Techno, Soul, Jazz, and almost every other musical style. Demonstrating a compelling blend of technical mastery and enthralling showmanship, Trepanado has become one of Latin America’s most revered DJs. With a swathe of weird and wonderful reissues on his Selva Discos label (and, indeed, some tried-and-tested dancefloor-fillers, such as Barbatuques’ “Baianá”), as well as a much- loved compilation, “Street Soul Brasil”, released through New York’s Hello Sailor label, it’s a pleasure to have him put together Sounds & Colours’ inaugural Con Alma Mixtape.

The Con Alma series will be a mug of hot coffee served on Monday mornings, to start your week off right. An hour of musical soul food that’s good for the body. Although the series’ name is taken from Dizzy Gillespie’s latin standard, don’t expect an hour of frenetic bebop – this is gentle introspection, warm sunrises, shower sing-a-longs… and always with plenty of soul.

Trepanado has a few words about his mix:

“I’m a slow waker so to speak – it takes me a while to get my machine up and running again each and every morning – so this selection is a reflection of this. It starts with some sort of “alarm”, or wake up call, then some decompression, some stretching, little by little it starts to move and talk and by the end of it the good mood is flagrant I hope.”
