Arthur Verocai mix by DJ Nuts

Arthur Verocai is one of my all-time favourite producers and arrangers from Brasil. His self titled LP is just one of those records you will appriciate for the rest of your life. Dj Nuts is the.., perhaps the brasilian Dj Shadow?! Amazing tunes and skills.
So this particular mix, I believe, has something to do with the Brasil-in-time project by Mochilla. Anyhow, check it out at The Sounds of VTech. It's beautiful!

"DJ Nuts is an astute and rigorous historian of Brasil’s vast and varied musical culture. His record collection is legendary; his skills as a DJ are world class. We commissioned him to make this mix to help people understand the extraordinary legacy of Verocai. Many by now know Verocai’s self-titled album, some even know the more popular compositions and arrangements, but none have dug as hard as Nuts. Years of collecting and a strong friendship with Verocai himself have made this historic mix possible. 78 minutes of all Verocai compositions and arrangements is a dream come true.
For such a mix to be made, only a true Brasilian music aficionado could have created this, and we are honored to be able to share it with you."
