all is well underway with the release of the record. the release date has been moved to May 22, with the double vinyl remix album on May 29.
The first video clip from the record was featured on Remezcla.
Feel free to share and post these links!
the main album will be sent out to those who donated for digital download the week of may 14 - yes, that's one week early for you guys! And, the remixes and DJ tools will be available for download the week of may 21.
The physical CDs have already been manufactured and are in the process of being distributed now. Those will be sent out sometime in june (it's ridiculously complicated to get them here in Brazil with out forking out an arm and leg in import taxes!).
Thanks again for all of your support!!!
beijos e abraços,
Mastering was very generously donated by Krishnin at www.blissonance.com in Paris.
Design was done by Zhao of www.optikom.com
Just wanted to send out a quick update on Quilombo do Futuro. Things are fully underway - the mastering (massive thanks Blissonance in Paris for this) and art will be done this week, a ton of awesome remixes have been delivered - Stank (DJ Dolores' new project), Frikstailers, Process Rebel, Leo Justi, Subatomic Sound System, Uproot Andy, Digitaldubs, Buguinha, Dub Gabriel, Chancha Via Circuito, El Remolon, Copia Doble, Dr. Das, Sabo, Poirier, Batida...Stereotyp and Fletcher promising things in the next few days.
We've also been hard at work filming video clips. Maarten van der Glas is now editing one clip, Fernando Salis is directing another 2 clips (filming nearly complete) and Emilio Domingos directing another. These are all slated to be finished by the end of the month.
I don't want to say too much yet, but looks like there's going to be a vinyl element (or two, maybe) to this release. More info on that soon soon.
For those of you who donated for a DJ mix or DVD, please hit me back and let me know a little bit about what you'd like. I'm beginning to work on those soon soon. Thanks!
Here are a few fotos from the video shoot last weekend...in order, that's Jeru Bantu, Garnizé, Sambadeiras do Reconca Rio and Rosângela Macedo and a couple shots of our location.
Just a quick update to say THANK YOU, obrigado, gracias, merci, danke, arigato, grazi, dankie, shokran, amasegenalo, asante sana to all of you who donated to this project. It's been an amazingly fantastic show of support!!!
The final mix of the record is already underway, mastering is being donated by Blissonance in Paris, France, 4 video clips are now in production (directors Fernando Salis, Emilio Domingos, and Maarten Van Der Glas), and about 15 remixes are coming in (great tracks from Chancha Via Circuito, Frikstailers, Process Rebel, Poirier, Buguinha, Dub Gabriel and Copia Doble are already in).
The preparations for the actual release are well underway. Filipe Cartaxo in Salvador is doing the art. Post World Industries in Barcelona will release the CD and negotiations are underway to release some tracks on vinyl.
The official release date is April 9. Depending on which country you're in, you'll get the physical copy around that date (if you ordered the actual CD). The digital release will be available on the 9th.
For those of you who donated for a skype session, a mix tape, a DVD, DJ set or workshop, I'll be in touch with you directly to set things up.
Again, thank you so much for your support!!!!!
