A physical realization of the bossa nova record experiment by Chaperone. What was intended to be a mix turned into a project beyond the parameters of what is often considered a mix. A true reconsideration of tropicalia, west coast cool jazz, or bossa nova sound to turn the commercial consumption of exotica into a darker invention.
released June 15, 2020
Recorded using a broken Behringer DJ mixer, two Audio Technica turntables with 20% pitch capability, and a pile of bossa nova records.

Wow. Instant favorite. That immortal dub-techno sound abstracted into lush, amorphous ambience. It feels visceral, deeply rooted in club music, yet transcendent and calm. Grateful for the repress, glad I could get a copy. Alec L. Critten
