Paolo Apollo & Antonio Negri – Sambabila

The roots of these new tracks have to be found in the deep love for Brazialian music that Antonio passed down to Paolo when he was young, a love that kept on growing through the years and resulted in this homage to some of their musical heroes like Os Catedraticos, Walter Wanderley and Jair Rodriugez.

Paolo Apollo Negri & Milo Scaglioni – Lightswitch b/w Le Cirque du MIDI

Written by Milo Scaglioni, Lightswitch has a Beatles meets Nilsson vibe with a melancholy vocal and is ripe with electronic atmosphere, deep soul percussion, and simmering synth, guitar, and bass. Le Cirque riffs on LQ’s “Dancing ’round the Walnut Tree” with a electronica twist and relentless percussion that right-turns into psychedelic jazz bridge with heavy funk guitar meets electric piano fusion.
