Pássaro encantado by Pássaro

It was a very special moment when our Brazilian friend and artist Ygor Marotta AKA VJ SUAVE shared his music with us for the first time. Marotta, best known the founder of the multi-disciplinary duo VJ Suave and as a member of the beloved Voodoohop family, joins Bahia based producer Bela Amado AKA Irû & fellow São Paulo bassist Tomás Xavier to present their new project Pássaro (Bird).

The trio’s debut EP Pássaro Encantado (Enchanted Bird) was recorded during a three day jamming session in Marotta’s Sao Paulo studio. It sounds is like a psychedelic tropical hike, a mysterious and enchanting journey into VJ Suave’s world, at once captivating but experimental, pop and psychedelic, natural and synthesized. Brazilian traditional influences sit alongside with wobbling electronic flutes, spaced out synths and Xavier’s freeform bass guitar. The five tracks are in the order that they were created: the energy and unique moment of those jam sessions at Marotta’s studio is printed perfectly onto the soul of this music.

Recorded by PÁSSARO at VJ Suave´s studio, between April 30th and May 2nd, 2019 in São Paulo.
