Smoke Notes

OE:Brazil is the result of a project in which six New Zealand musicians stayed in Sao Paulo for three weeks to record a album with some of Brazil's finest musical artists. Included in the Kiwi contingent were Barnaby Weir (Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties, Flash Harry), Hollie Smith, P.Digsss (Shapeshifter), Maaka Phat (Wai), Recloose, and Brazilian Kiwi Alda Rezende.
The potentially disparate sounds of the collaboration are highlighted in the opening two tracks: 'Ka Hoki Nga Mahara' and 'Doa Doa' - the former a haunting atmospheric soundscape that wouldn't be out of place on the soundtrack to Whale Rider, the latter a typically hip-shaking piece of latin boss nova replete with shakers, chiming acoustic guitars and the sultry vocals of Rezende.
But then comes 'Doin' it for Brazil' in which the crossover becomes seamless - Weir's dub influences melding smoothly with the latin beats of his Brazilian contemporaries. Tracks like 'The Grind' and 'Sunshine' (featuring P.Digsss - sounding like he's fronting his usual band Shapeshifter in some sort of Brazilian-beat mode) are fantastic examples of how the two musical cultures can be fused together into an exciting new hybrid, with perhaps another Weir fronted track - 'I'm Not Gonna Back Down' being the real stand-out mash-up of the two styles: brass, keyboards, percussion, guitars, samples, funky beats and Weir's laidback drawl interweaving around the beatbox and MC vocals of Marcello Pretto and Funky Buia. Recommended.
