Image: 1598906 Brazil 45, number 30: Brazilian disco/boogie double.

A. Marcos Valle - Estrelar

Marcos Valle is back again, this time with the almighty 'Estrelar', his most well known disco/boogie track co-written with Leon Ware. Added hints of Yacht Rock too!

The video (see below), filmed in Rio in the early 1980's, is particular special and is well worth 5 minutes of your time. Marketed as “workout music" at the time, 'Estrelar' was his best-selling record with a total of around 90,000 sales.

'Estrelar' is taken from his 1983 self titled LP released on Som Livre.

AA. Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti - Alleluia

Two of the masters of the Brazilian Boogie sound joined forces to make a self-titled LP released in 1982 that epitamised the sound of early 80's Rio de Janeiro. Synths and keys float over razor sharp samba, jazz and 2-step drum grooves backed by huge layers of horns. Production is as shiny, bright and ultra clean as it ever got!

'Alleluia' is a mid tempo groover, with rich horns, guitar, synth and vocal lines. An end of the night jam if ever there was one.

Released on the LP mentioned above and also on 7" in 1983. Available from 28.08.2015
