It's hard for me to believe, but we have been working with Zuco 103 since the year 2000. This amazing Amsterdam based trio are one of the pioneers of a sound that has been dubbed "Brazil-electro", mixing up everything that is good and fun about Brazilian music with dance, electronic and even rock influences. All of their releases are great and well worth you checking out- but their latest, After the Carnaval finds them in particularly fine, spontaneous and relaxed form, moving a bit away from the "sample" based sounds of prior records and into more of a warm and organic vibe. It's the kind of record that can only be made by a group that has reached a point in their career where they are confident in that elusive, effortless chemistry that only the best bands possess.
It is a beautiful thing to work with a group long enough to see them come to this point in the creative life cycle of their work. Enjoy-
