Ivan ‘Mamão’ Conti – Poison Fruit

Update – First single Bacurau now available

Ivan Conti is best known as the rhythm section of the fantastic long running Brazilian jazz funk group Azymuth.  Azymuth have been going since 1973, but this isn’t the first time Ivan has put out a solo project.  Discogs tells me his first solo album came out way back in 1984 featuring this rather fetching cover!  One for the shopping list no doubt.


Currently there is only a little 6 minute teaser mix of a bunch of tracks from the new album, but it’s enough to get excited about for sure.  The album’s been produced by Daniel Maunick (aka Dokta Venom) and Ivan’s son Thiago Maranhão.  The label is promising experiments with sounds more commonly associated with the modern dancefloor.   The album is due on Far Out Recordings in the new year.  A couple of remix EPs which have preceded the release are still available with remixes from big hitters IG Culture, 22a crew, Max Graef and Glenn Astro
