Limited Edition Clamshell Box which doubles up as a DJ box for your Brazil 45s collection.We've been toying with the idea of collaborating with a guest selector for the Brazil 45 series since its inception in 2014, but up until now the timing has never been quite right.That all changed following a recent digging trip to Brazil, where upon our return DJ Format was first into the office, full of excitement and enthusiasm (portable record player in hand), ready to bust open the boxes and see what treats we had unearthed.Straight away we knew that alongside being one of the UK's premier record collectors, producers and DJs, he had the passion and knowledge that would result in a totally unique take on a Brazil 45 collection. Brazil has such a rich multi-genre musical heritage that sometimes it can be hard for curators to decide on where to focus.DJ Format has a very distinct stamp to his own productions and mixtapes, and that can be clearly seen in the coherent theme he has applied to his selections for this release.He has chosen 10 funk-psyche-break-beat Brazilian nuggets from the '60s and early '70s, and included wonderful artists such as The Modern Tropical Quintet, Manito, Free-son, and Marisa Rossi, to name a few.It is a body of work that fits together perfectly and shines a light on some perhaps forgotten artists that deserve attention and praise.This collection will appeal to fans of DJ Format, those with a knowledge of Brazilian music, and even the first time buyer just wanting to discover something new. This special limited Record Store Day 5 x 45s collection comes in a box designed by Owen Tozer.
