Mr Bongo Record Club Volume 4
The latest release in the much loved Mr Bongo Record Club Series. Curating the tracks for a Mr Bongo Record Club compilation is always such a pleasure. At a time when the expression “Music is My Sanctuary” has an even greater cathartic impact for many people, we set out to make this volume an extra special one – like an old favourite mixtape or playlist. For Volume 4 in this series they continue in the same mould as with previous editions, selecting current favourites and rare lost gems from the Brazilian, African, soul, funk, and disco genres. They present tracks from artists such as Azwon, Cindy and The Playmates, and Zé Roberto to name just a few. However, one main departure and progression to this edition is the first time inclusion of recordings by contemporary artists. These come from Matthew Tavares (of BADBADNOTGOOD fame), Wax Machine, and DJ Format and The Simonsound, which were originally featured on either limited private press vinyl releases or were previously only available digitally. They felt their inclusion was important and wanted to share these wonderful discoveries with a wider audience. They also complement, enrich, and fit perfectly with the flow and journey of the compilation. Mr Bongo hope you will enjoy this selection of seventeen eclectic songs (in tempo and style) as much as they do, whether they make you move your feet, take you on a trip somewhere, or trigger a happy memory.
