Maga Bo – Beyond Digital Mix

This is a mix I did as for Automation Records for their donation to our Beyond Digital project back in June.  File under heavy, hard, experimental, electronic with nasty bits of noise and many different languages, but, oh! then there’s a mellow moment (must be El Remolon!)…..and so on.  a few exclusive tracks too.  Feel free to blog and distribute freely.  Big, big, BIG UP to Jeremiah from Automation Records for his donations not only to Beyond Digital, but also to Quilombo do Futuro!!

Maga Bo – Raízes Mix

This mix is a compilation of music that has profoundly inspired my new release “Quilombo do Futuro.”  This music contains a wisdom and connection with the universe that I don’t find in electronic music (or at least very rarely).  Not one of the songs was created using a computer.  These beats will challenge your Ableton auto warp engine with their (beautiful) irregularity.  The velocity sensitivity on these drums will absolutely defy your groove quantize extractor.  These drums are triggered by human hands in real time.  It’s analog and human.  It’s coco, samba, samba recôncavo, sambareggae, capoeira angola, jongo and maculelê.

7.  Percussão – Boi Paz do Brasil da Sociedade Junina Turma de São João Batista
8.  Maculelê – Capoeira Mestre Suassuna

Support Quilombo do Futuro on Kickstarter

Some pretty big news  – 3 years in the making, my new record, QUILOMBO DO FUTURO is finished and I’m now in the process of getting it out into the world.  For that, I’m asking for YOUR help!  While the music is finished, a lot of things still need to be done.  I’ve started a Kickstarter project to raise funds to make this release possible.

In exchange for your donation, I’m offering a series of different prizes – from a digital download of the record, the remixes, instrumentals and acapellas, to a skype consultation, a custom DVD playlist, a mixtape, a DJ set or even a 1 day workshop.  So, yes, you actually get something in return (aside from warm fuzzy feelings of helping this music see the light of day, of course!) for your donation.

You can read more details about the project and see (and listen!) a video about the record here:

All funds raised by the Kickstarter project will go to making this release a reality – mastering, artwork, duplication, publicity and web design.

If you’re not able to donate, but would still like to help the project, please tell people about this – post it to facebook, pass this email along, tweet about it, post it on your blog, etc.  Every little bit helps – especially YOUR participation!  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask…..
