Hot on the heels of their highly acclaimed Glitterbeat album “III” -- an album The Guardian called “imaginative, progressive afrobeat”-- Bixiga 70 returns with this limited-edition, vinyl-only LP. Whereas “III” was a highly contemporary take on the Afro-Brazilian musical conversation, ‘The Copan Connection’ looks northward from Brazil to Jamaica, and embraces the repeat-echo history of dub music as its inspiration. On the album, Bixiga 70 producer Victor Rice applies shimmering, kaleidoscopic dub reinventions to tracks from “III” and the results are jaw dropping and ear opening. The music swells, ebbs, flows, deconstructs and then blissfully reconnects in completely unexpected ways. The result is not a mere companion piece to “III” but a completely new, stand-alone sonic experience.
