Artist: NINOS DU BRASIL
Title: Novos Misterios
Format: CD
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Hospital Productions presents an exhilarating label debut by flamboyant Italian battery, Nicolò Fortuni and Nico Vascellari, aka Ninos Du Brasil. Novos Mistérios follows their debut LP for La Tempesta International/Tannen Records with an acutely stripped-down blend of mostly "live" recorded percussion and explorative electronic sound design. The project, and album, is a radical inversion and consolidation of the duos respective backgrounds in performance art, punk and indie bands. Inspired by the febrile humidity and sensory overload of Brazilian carnival music, they temper layers of roiling, propulsive percussion with electronic drones, effects and tribalist vocals to militant, hypnotic effect. Six tracks charge between technoid polymetrics, kinky minimalism, and meditative ritual with particular focus on rhythmic, melodic cadence and carefully-constructed atmospheres, drawing lines between the avant-garde coda of William Winant and Indonesian Gamelan on "Essenghelo Tropical," to Cut Hands voodoo invocations on "Legiõs De Cupins," and the percussive moments of Brazilian metal legends on "Sepultura." Nicolo and Nico both emerged from the Italian punk and indie-rock scenes. Nico is also regarded as one of the worlds pre-eminent visual artists. He is represented by Monitor Gallery in Italy and Bugada & Cargnel in Paris, and participated in Biennale Venice and Manifesta7. The song "Sepultura" is also part of the soundtrack to Socrates One of Us, directed by Mimmo Calopresti, and Nicos Von Archive co-curator, Spanish film director Carlos Casas is producing an individual video for each track. NDB have also recently announced a 12" release for DFA, due summer 2014. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton. Album cover by renowned artist Luigi Ontani." - Hospital Productions.

SOLD OUT

Artist: NINOS DU BRASIL
Title: Para Araras
Format: 12"
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Two extended productions from Ninos du Brasil(Nico Vascellari and Nicolò Fortuni), who follow their much-praised 2014 album Novos Mistérios (HOS 411CD) with an oddly compelling blend of joyous theme-park music crossed with the chaos and explosive tension of mass street protests. "A Magia do Rei" is a rolling techno variant kinked with polyrhythmic shuffles, darkside synth strokes, and swooping subs, superbly rendered by Neels mastering. "Algo ou Alguém Entre as Árvores" hits a different groove with a roiling, humid swamp of churning bass, scissoring syncopation, and layered voices, like an extended outtake from the Cannibal Holocaust soundtrack." - Hospital Productions.

Artist: NINOS DU BRASIL
Title: Vida Eterna
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Nico Vascellari and Nicolò Fortuni come out to play in the dark on their third and deadliest LP as Ninos Du Brasil, taking their fascinations with ritual musics -- from Brazilian Afro-Latin tribal rhythms to library music and freezing Scandinavian BM -- deep into the festering undergrowth of their shared, exotic aesthetic. Where the cover of their first album for Hospital Productions, Novos Mistérios (HOS 411CD, 2014), depicted a naked man covered by a leopard pelt, Marvin Gaye Chetwynds oil painting of a screeching Chiroptera in flight on the Vida Eterna jacket makes a strong visual allegory for NDBs finer tuned spatial sensitivities inside, with their churning rhythms now embedded in fathoms of dread space and father shaded in layers of processed vocal chants, both punk, metal, and tribalistic. The big highlight is no doubt the closing cut, "Vagalumes Piralampos", where Arto Lindsay, the legendary founder of DNA, chimes in on a stygian, moonlit jag between the eyes of bossa nova, batacuda, and the sort of esoteric electronics also charted by Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement or Cienfuegos. But it only really makes sense after youve expended your energies along with the band thru monstrous techno shakedowns such as "O Veto Chama Seu Nome", the soca-like rush of "Condenado Por Un Idioma Desconhecido", or found yourself lost, without coordinates, in the pitch black breakdown of "No Meio Da Noite" and have been hypnotized by the stalking rhythms and atmospheres of "Em Que O Rio Do Mar Se Toma". The creation of this album, inspired by vampirism, was born from a collaboration between Vascellari and Fortuni with producer Rocco Rampino, whose love of dense textures and low-end bombast masterfully and cleverly couples with the bands explosive percussive charge, resulting in eight tracks that mimic sharp blades scything through a nocturnal jungle. RIYL: Psychedelic Warriors Of Gaia, Female, Vatican Shadow. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Comes in a gatefold jacket." - Hospital Productions.
