Satanique Samba Trio is back with another mini-album, made during this everlasting confinement.
F O R R Í V E L – Halloweeen / Dia das Bruxas special, get it on our Bandcamp.
After 10 albums dedicated to the aesthetical disassembling of Brazilian music’s most recurrent clichés, Satanique Samba Trio aims its ongoing research at a new formula for musical fuckery: the artificial combination between forró, the popular Brazilian groovy rhythm and horror synth, the not-so-popular music genre extracted from old keyboard-ridden horror film scores.
Think of what would happen if the most syncopated of all Brazilian folk rhythms incorporated a bunch of obsolete-but-nowadays-trendy giallo soundtrack tropes. Mathematically speaking, forró + horror synth = forrór synth. And that is where Forrível is coming from.
Well, enough of homework. It’s Halloween once again (or Dia das Bruxas – Witches Day, as it’s called in Brazil) – and it’s raining in Brazil. As we are slowly descending into a renewed global lockdown, here some soundtrack sounds for these dark times.
Bandcamp is again kindly waiving their fees for 24h during May Day, so that artists can receive more money with their digital music sales or merch.
At Rebel Up we combined this with a 15% discount action that will run for the whole weekend until sunday midnight 25 May. Check our Bandcamp page and claim your discount.
And we have another May Day special >
a new digital only release on our label by Satanique Samba Trio titled “Instant Karma”.
Satanique Samba Trio’s most recent release WAS SUPPOSED TO BE the first liquid album in history: taking advantage of the short-lived exposure provided by Instagram Stories, your favorite Brazilian experimental quintet (yes, quintet), known for its brief-but-complex-deconstructed-Brazilian-rhythm-pieces, presented the world with a 15-second lo-fi tune every day throughout the month of February 2019. It’s a true trip into the tropi-concrete world of SS3.
In accordance with Instagram Stories’ rules, each song was available online for exact 24 hours, only to disappear FOREVER, leaving a faint sketch of Brazil’s musical diversity on the ethereal surface of your memory. Ground breaking, right? Yeah, but only for a year or so, as illegally downloaded versions of the tunes started to pop up around the Russian web. Well, it was fun while it lasted.
The good news is now you can have Instant Karma in your HD as a chock-full digital package. Let it drip.
