New: Fatboy Slim presents Bem Brasil

With the World Cup only weeks away the relentless tide of Brazil themed albums, compilations, TV programmes, drinks, burgers, flip flops, cheese slices, toothpaste, beachwear and even underwear flows ever stronger.  Its amazing to know how football and Brazil can be linked with such an eclectic range of life’s everyday essentials.  BUT, there are some Brazil specials that stand out from the crowd, one of them is Bem Brasil, compiled and curated by Fatboy Slim.  An array high grade electronic music talent including Fatboy himself, our very own Riva Starr, Yousef, DJ Fresh, Carl Cox and Joey Negro have contributed tracks and remixes of new and existing tracks, but the real scoop here is the calibre of Brasilan artists who feature  - Joyce, Jorge Ben, Gilberto Gil, Elza Soares, these are proper legends!  
Bem Brasil delivers high energy party and club tracks and reversions of classics spread over 2 CDs, and is enough to keep any world cup party going long after the last ball has been kicked, (and England return home triumphant!)..
