Black Sun / Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra

Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra - Black Sun

Far Out Recordings

Ever since their first compilation in 2014 The Far Out Monster Orchestra has delighted us with invigorating dance tracks remixed by some of today's acclaimed DJs. With three members of Azymuth, including Arthur Verocai and Jose Roberto Bertrami plus fellow Rio funk legends Banda Black Rio are back to deliver another fabulous collection of original compositions. On the title track we're delighted by the vocals of Heidi Vogel over a bass driven dance friendly groove. "The Two Of Us" with Mia Mendes on lead vocals is another winner that's filled with blissful orchestral arrangements and gorgeous vocal harmonies. This album comes with six vocal recordings and an instrumental of each track as well. It's quality disco stripped down where the focus is on groove, melody and lush arrangements. These musicians have quite the resume when it comes to Jazz, Brazilian and funk compositions. With this release they've proven to be equally adept at infectious dance tracks as well.
