Its summer time, Its hot out there… and DJ Patife is about to make it even HOTTER. Directly from the sun soaked beaches of his native Brazil, SUNANDBASS & V Recordings are proud to bring you DJ Patife Presents- Viva Brazil: SUNANDBASS Sessions.
Patife has compiled new and exclusive music from some of the most exciting producers in Brazil including names such as L-Side, Alibi, Drumagick & DJ Chap along with new music from himself and guest appearances from top class talent such as Command Strange & MC Fats…
This project is an important one. Its represents Patife’s re-found love for the game that was re-ignited by a trip to the SUNANDBASS festival. In his own words, DJ Patife tells how and why he felt so inspired.
‘From 2009 to 2013, I was away from the industry due to marriage, kids and other personal stuff, but also I’d stepped away from the scene because at that time I wasn’t so happy about the music that was out there. A lot of things was changing and I it seemed like a natural time for me to take a break.
Then in 2014, I had my first SUNANDBASS experience, it was a game changer for me in so many ways! As a Drum & Bass lover, it was hard to believe that for a whole week an event took place in a paradise named San Teodoro in Sardinia (Italy). An event full of people who love this musicfrom all around world, all alongside those legends who’ve been in this scene since the beginning.
As a person who loves to share, I thought about my boys in Brazil who have been following and supporting D&B all these years. I was trying to find a way for all of them, or at least a few of them to come to SUNANDBASS, and to see and feel what I was feeling.‘
… and that’s exactly what he did. Viva Brazil: SUNANDBASS Sessions is a beautifully compiled ode to the SUNANDBASS festival, but also Patife’s love of Drum & Bass. This exciting project kicked off last month with ‘The Vibe Is Coming EP’ EP that was released on both digital and vinyl on SUNANDBASS‘s own label with a selection of tracks that can also be found here.
The tracks on this compilation are fresh and new but they also manage to capture the essence of the first time you went raving in the sun. This album is a labour of love for Patife, SUNANDBASS & V Recordings.
