World renowned BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson compiles a spectacular collage mix tape from the vaults of Far Out Recordings for this fifteenth anniversary celebration. A close friend to Joe Davis for 25 years, Gilles Peterson has been a constant supporter of the original and best UK based Brazilian record label.

The pair released the first 'Brazilika' compilation on Gilles' Talking Loud label 15 years ago and now go full circle with the fourth installment in Far Out's series, following block party mixes from Kenny Dope, 4 Hero and Andy Votel. Brazilian music aficionados Peterson and Davis introduced a new generation to the cream of Brazil's bossa and post-bossa artists and here expertly blend the timeless with the new breed from Far Out's monumental catalogue.

These 23 hand-picked tracks barely break the surface of the thousands recorded by Far Out over the years yet they provide the perfect introduction to and celebration of his enduring label. DJs, record collectors and record label owners, Gilles Peterson and Joe Davis are perhaps the two most influential UK figures breaking Brazilian music to the Western world over the past thirty years. This album is testament to their success and unending passion for bringing classic and innovative Brazilian music to the people.

Gilles Peterson's "Brazil, classico, mix!" is the definitive collection of Far Out's work, taking us on a breathless ride through a beautiful, barmy Brazil. The authority on world and Brazilian music has found the perfect beat. Get swept up.
