Diggin’ This: Ivan Conti – “Azul” (Max Graef Remix) (Far Out Recordings)


Bleep-hop for the beach.


Germany’s Max Graef steps up to remix one of Brazil’s finest drummers and one third of Azymuth, Ivan “Mamão” Conti.

Graef’s rework of “Azul” is a casual, low-slung affair, replete with strict beeps, descending keyboard chimes, a jovial bass, and blistered drums.



Track of the day.
