Music on 'Beyond Ipanema'


One song by Lazybatusu, 'Nu-Gezzando' is featured in the documentary 'Beyond Ipanema'.

If you get a chance, check out this incredible film directed by Guto Barra and produced by Béco Dranoff:

BEYOND IPANEMA is a mash-up of thoughts and ideas about the repeating cycle of discovery of Brazilian music in the world.

Through interviews with David Byrne, Devendra Banhart, M.I.A., Os Mutantes, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé, Seu Jorge, Thievery Corporation, Bebel Gilberto, CSS, Creed Taylor and many others, BEYOND IPANEMA surveys the Brazilian music experience outside of Brazil. Artists, producers, DJs and critics analyze how the crosspollination of music styles, as well as sampling and globalization; have helped Brazil to secure a unique position in global culture.

National ad campaigns: Alcatel-Lucent & Nokia!

Don't get scared, we haven't gone all corporate yet. But..we have indeed been featured in the new campaign of Alcatel-Lucent technologies 'Always On'! This is great exposure for us and it reminded us how important it is to keep on going, especially during hard times. The national campaign featuring Emunity Records is already out on paper, online and on TV. 'Business Week', 'Fortune', 'Esquire', CBS Europe, CNN and of course the Alcatel-Lucent website.

Emunity Records' honcho Matias Iribarne aka Urko (pictured above) did an amazing job explaining what Emunity is all about, to quote the man himself:
"Discovering and meeting new interesting sounds and people doesn't depend only on luck. You need to explore, be open, you need to be on, ALWAYS ON." How's that for a catch line?

So, fellas, keep on sending us links, feedback and shout outs: we're always reading and answering every email we receive, like we've been doing since day one.

A track by Lazybatusu is featured in the new NOKIA campaign, in collaboration with Spike Lee, check it out! You can use 4MuLA & Corrado's song 'Ability', as the soundtrack for your movie submission that will be watched and selected by Spike Lee.

We are still listening to the hundreds of submissions for
'PAXPORT VOL.2', and a great thanks goes to everybody who sent us music and is still sending... Most of it is definitely not up our alley, but as usual, we're more than happy to point new artists and young & old talents in the right direction, if we're able to. You can always reach us at: info@emunityrecords.com

That's all for now! Stay tuned - new music coming out soon

Coo coo cachoo,

Lazybatusu Cut On Acid Jazz Records + Petrol Records/EMI compilation


Hello everybody,
it's been a while: hope you're all in good shape and spirit.
A little bit of fresh news from our side: a new remix by Lazybatusu just came out on the legendary British label Acid Jazz Records, it goes without saying that is printed in that good old material we all love, it's black, it's shiny, it's wax! 12 inches of love (ok, that sounds like a bad porn flick's title, but you all know what we mean).

This time Corrado & 4MuLA remixed Smoove. We've never met Smoove but were blown away by his remake of 'The Revolution Will Be Televised' a few years back, so we got in touch, linked up and here comes "AS IF", his new single. The release comes with another latin mix by Smoove himself and a great nu-jazz mix of 'Rejoice In Righteousness' featuring The Bukky Leo Quintet. A nice breeze of fresh air, English style. Have a listen here.


Lazybatusu is featured on 'The Departure Lounge Chill', a new compilation released by Petrol Records, a new label hailing from Sidney, Australia. Petrol Records is distributed by EMI, which makes us all very happy and confident that you'll be able to find this downtempo compilation containing our music pretty much...everywhere. Next to Lazybatusu you'll find among others: Madredeus, Max Sedgley and The Pinkertones.



4MuLA is trying to install a double processor in his cerebral cortex and who knows, he might even succeed at some point. He couldn't stay put in the wee hours and collaborated with Terron Darby playing keys on his latest remix of Rob Slac Feat. Fourfeet called 'It's Official', deep nice jazzy beats! Bravo, Terron. Terron Darby is an upcoming Brooklyn-based producer who's also a slick sound engineer: he already mixed Natalie Williams'remix "This Girl" for Lazybatusu and is now working on his beats.

Music keeps flowing here, and it's coming your way.
Stay tuned for more news and as always, keep on... keepin' on.
