The Brooklyn beat collective known as Astro Nautico is releasing its latest EP, Quiet Nights, on December 9th. Featuring tracks from all three Astro Nautico artists (Kuhn, Obey City, +weed) and guest spots from both sides of the Atlantic (Young Montana?, Termeric, InfinitiRock, Thirsty Jefferson), this compilation is unified by each artist’s interpretation/mix of the Brazilian jazz classic “Corcovado” as performed by Stan Getz.
Phasing tape hiss, crunchy vinyl pops and thunderous subs interface with classic bossa nova piano vamps, raw saxophone swag and the hauntingly beautiful vocals of Astrud Gilberto. This is as much a tribute to the depth of Brazilian songwriting as it is to modern electronic developments in the wake of dubstep and Dilla.
Seriously, this EP bumps. Relax+enjoy the preview below and make sure to cop Quiet Nights on December 9th!
