Madlib the eccentric producer of many hiphop classics for Stonesthrow Records and the successful Shades of Blue series for Blue Note Records loves Brasilian music. When he went to Brazil in 2002 with Mochilla to participate in the production of Brasilintime his one mission was to meet Ivan "Mamao" Conti the drummer of the legendary trio Azymuth. Madlib had made an Azymuth tribute record he wanted to play for him. This moment across generations and continents was revealed in the critically acclaimed documentary Brasilintime: Batucada com Discos. Now the fruits of this meeting and eventual collaboration are being released by Mochilla. On a rainy night in Rio Mamao and Madlib went in the studio. Several hours later the rhythm tracks that make up Sujinho were laid and the process began. Featuring the music of Madlib, Mamao, Edu Lobo, Chico Buarque de Hollanda, Luiz Eca, Baden Powell, Vinicius De Moraes, Marcos Valle, Joao Donato, Dom Um Romao, Airto Moreira and even George Duke… and with guest vocals by new sensation Thalma De Freitas -- Jackson Conti is a unique and classic record. Filled with the angularity and edge of a Madlib production and underwritten by the polyrhythmics of Mamao -- Sujinho takes Brasilian music into places it has never been, bringing oft forgotten classics like Upa Neguinho to 21st century ears.
