Download: Arthur Verocai “Presente Grego”


(from the self-titled LP coming soon on Ubiquity)

Costa Mesa label Ubiquity—and its reissue arm Luv N Haight—have quietly announced a very limited vinyl repress of the long-gone Arthur Verocai LP, a lost masterpiece that surfaced only in 2002 and which provoked such a powerful response (Madlib has said he’d listen to it every single day!) that Verocai was able to perform his first American shows ever in Los Angeles last month. (We even got to interview him—read it here!) This record is an easy lock for any DJs—people always come running up asking what it is—and a satisfying listen start to finish. Folks into Os Mutantes, Azymuth, Jorge Ben, Norman Whitfield, Shuggie Otis, Sly Stone, Charles Stepney (of Rotary Connection) or any of those lone visionary types who made the studio into their own psychedelic instrument will want to get this and will be particularly unhappy if they miss the second chance. The album remains available on CD and iTunes, however.
