Tracks: AIRPORT LOVE THEME/AFRO SOM

You know it’s going to be a heavy record when DJ / collector Mr Thing asks

you to keep a look out for a copy on your next digging trip to Brazil. Add on

top of that, being sampled by Madlib on the track ‘Curls’ on his

Madvillain album!

This quirky 60’s-breakbeat-funk groove is reminiscent of French artist Jean

Jacques Perrey’s ‘E.V.A.’, also from 1970, in its melody and backbeat, where

the Moog synthesizer of Perrey is replaced with a more orchestrated sound

by Calmon. This track is magical, cinematic and breakbeat-laden with a hidden

unknown exoticism. Waldir Calmon had an active career in music working from

the ‘50s right up until his passing in 1982.
