TUCK SHOP MUSIC
NINETY MINUTE MIX
Joe put together a 90 minute mix for Tuck Shop music to go with an interview. You can access the interview here, or find it in the 'WORDS' drop down menu.
“This mix meanders through a variegated collection of Brazilian music. After an opening dripping with attitude courtesy of Priscilla Ermel’s and Bebel Gilberto’s recent releases, we swing into a swaggering, groove-heavy mood. Dipping into a Carrot Green slow-roller, we come out the other side in some fusion, funk and R&B before Azymuth’s rhythm section going back to back. Towards the middle of the mix we leave groove-based music behind briefly, with some structurally-meticulous Elis Regina and ethereal Flora Purim. The last section of the mix carries you through, often fuzz-laden, dance music beginning in the Afro-Brazilian idiom before climaxing with a bass-slapping edit from Gop Tun’s XAMA 2020 compilation. After our favourite slice of mathy fusion, the mix ends with something special commemorating the recently deceased and dearly-loved soul sensation, Bill Withers.”
