Radio Soulwax Presents Batuta Discos- 08 November, 2011
We’ve got to admit that this is a little bit special. Here’s a new mix of Brazilian music by 2manyDJs aka Soulwax. It’s part of their Radio Soulwax project, which will eventually include 24 1 hour mixes of music. Batuta Discos is all about quality Brazilian vinyls with a mixture of classics, rareties and new tunes thrown in too.
One of the most enjoyable things about this mix is the video that goes with it, featuring mainly the streets of Sao Paulo with various people holding up giant copies of the vinyl being played in the mix. It gives a little glimpse into the environment where this music is coming from as well as a great way to identify the tunes being played. Also – and I think this is most important – it makes you want to hold these records in your hands rather than download faceless mp3s. And maybe that’s the point. Here’s Batuta Discos:
