INSTORE SIGNING with MARCOS VALLE and AZYMUTH

Crown Ruler, Northside Records & Duke Street Block Party proudly present… 

AZYMUTH & MARCOS VALLE (BRAZIL) // IN-STORE SIGNING


Two of the most iconic and influential archetypes of modern Brazilian music. Legacies that have proliferated and pushed since the 1960s, remaining just as relevant nearly six decades later. 

Coinciding with three hotly anticipated performances at The Night Cat, it is with great privilege we invite you to come meet and greet the living legends – Azymuth and Marcos Valle – for a very special in-store signing @ Northside Records Friday 18th March, 5-7pm.

That’s right, Gertrude Street just might get shut down as Brazilian royalty come to grace Naarm’s funky music institution. A rare occasion to get up close and personal with the minds of those who literally reshaped music history. Bacana! 

For those of you who might want to add some of their storied catalogs to your collection (signed copies with a memory at that), Northside Records will be stocked up with plenty of Brazilian ‘bossa-samba-funk-fusion’ wax goodness on the day. 

This is an entirely FREE event and as you’d expect, we’re anticipating a serious turn out. We encourage you to get down early to ensure you have enough time to meet your idols. 

Given their significance, it’s mind boggling to think Azymuth will only now make their Australian debut while Marcos Valle makes his return for the first time since 2007. 

Valle and Azymuth’s enduring influence on funk, soul, samba, jazz, pop and even rock of the world, cannot be underestimated; an adventurous brand of fusion which continues to be an inspiration for artists everywhere. A who’s who of contemporary iconoclasts have sampled, remixed, repurposed or collaborated with the giants – Madlib, Roni Size, MF Doom, IG Culture, Flying Lotus, Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammed, Mark Pritchard, Theo Parrish, 4Hero and so on; Such is the lasting legacy of these genre-bending radicals who continue to create genuinely pertinent music to this day. 

Between these savant’s they’ve worked with them all – Sarah Vaughn, Frank Sinatra, Sergio Mendes, Stevie Wonder, Leon Ware, Chicago, Jorge Ben, Airto Moreira, Chick Corea, George Duke, Milton Nascimento, Tim Maia to list just a handful. They’ve made global pop hits and explored the more esoteric. Sampled by the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Will.I.Am the music continues to influence today’s pop culture. 

A more than complimentary double header, the occasional collaborators both define not only the story of Rio’s bursting bossa-nova and samba scenes of the 60s/70s but also the forward-thinking imagination to take those traditions to expansive new territories, helping explore modern music’s potential.

On parallel journeys, each have continuously evolved and found new generations of fans, occasionally crossing paths on recordings or live performances to this day. The two combine once more for a bonafide flex of their repertoire and improvisational mastery. A showcase of some of the most defining Brazilian music made and its lasting impact on the world. 

feel free to call us here at NORTHSIDE RECORDS on 94177557 if you would like any more information.

This event will take place on the lands of the Wurrundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. Crown Ruler and Northside Records acknowledge their Elders past and present, and pay their respect to all First Nations people. Always Was, Always Will Be.

INSTORE SIGNING and Q&A with NORMAN JAY mbe

Yes, yes ya’ll. One of the most legendary UK DJ’s who helped coin the term RARE GROOVE. A term that is really the basis for this record store, and many others.

An artist who has had  a defining effect in bringing together the world of groove under one big happy umbrella. It wasn’t happy in the beginning but now it is – thank the lord! He now has a book out that will guide you through the trip that his life has been, always with THE GOOD TIMES! aka Mr Good Times. Get down early and groove to the sounds of Northside DJs who get the space ready.

FLYING LOTUS INSTORE SIGNING

WOW. What a day. We only got two days heads up that this was going to happen. So happy it did! Fly Lo signed for TWO HOURS straight. The queue stretched PAST the RAINBOW and around the corner of Gertrude Street to Smith Street! DJ’s MIKE GURRIERI and EMELYNE set the mood all night just right. The funky drummer, Paul Gorrie gave us an Acknowledgment of Country and FLY LO started his odyssey! As he finished the signing we played a few unreleased THUNDERCAT joints and got the dancing competition underway. Big thanks to Fly Lo and also to THE OPERATIVES and WARP RECORDS.
