#Special 20 Davide Gravato -Handpan Freestyle

Yeah, “it’s mi, Mario!”. Don’t know if everybody is going to get that, but what I was trying to say was: yes…that’s me in the video. I was expecting to post something else, but with work and study, I couldn’t arrange to post another’s musician/band video.

In this video, somewhere filmed in 2015, I went to the Pedra Azul’ Park (ES-Brazil) to relax, and end up filming an improvisation on my handpan. This stone is known for changing color up to 36 times per day. It’s not easy to see from the angle on the video, but there is a smaller stone on it that resembles a lizard. So that’s it… hope you enjoy.

Artist – Davide Gravato
Song/video – Freestyle/ improvisation
Genre: Handpan music / Metal music / Other

#19 Gustavsite – Sade

Hey hey! Are you sade? No, really…are you? I don’t know what does “sade” mean, but I’m happy with it (god, I’m terrible with jokes). So, Sade is the track I’m bringing you today. It was made by Gustavsite, from France. Just, to clarify, I really don’t know what “sade” means. After checking in google translator, no english or french was working for me. Google told me to check it in swedish. It seems that it means “say” (like someone “said” something), but I don’t think Gustavsite wanted to express anything in swedish lol. Forgot to ask.

Anyways… I don’t know about you, but I love downtempo related tracks with sax. Obviously I liked this one. But the whole song is cool, so even if you aren’t crazy with saxs as I am, you can still check it out.

Artist – Gustavsite
Song – Sade
Genre – Downtempo / Storyteller / Sade song? (Not sad…I’m just really bad with jokes)

#18 Arctween – Get Moving!

I know, I know… you guys are like “wow…two posts within the same week?”. Improvements my friends, improvements. Well, today I bring you a kind of special entry, because music that belongs to friends must be supported as much as our favorite artists. Even more! At the same time I’m far from making any favor, and you’ll see why. So, this track comes from Portugal (I suppose) and it was made by Arctween, or if you prefer, Tito Romão. Tito used to skate with me back in 2004/2005 (inline skating mostly). He was always connected with and to music and if you are Portuguese, you may recognize him from the band Salto.

Anyways… Arctween is, for what I’ve understood, an experimental project. I can’t tell you exactly what to expect, so I recommend you to go and follow his project if you like what you’re about to hear. Overall I’ve found his first Soundcloud featured song really solid, liking specially the bass line and how the whole song slowly grows. It is better for you to get moving and listen to it:

Artist – Arctween
Song – Get Moving!
Genre – Eletronic / Experimental / Moving song? (understand that as you please haha)

While you can listen to the song for free, the track is downloadable (odd word, right?) for just 1€ at his Bandcamp:

#17 Anjero – Air / 100 likes on FB

Hey ma people! First of all we have reached +100 likes on Sifot’s Facebook page. I know it is not much, but it is still important to me. I used this blog/site without a schedule nor a sense of obligation when posting. Just check the counting… we are at the 17th post hehehe. Anyway, I just want to thank you all =)

Today’s track is from Anjero from Russia. In fact I’m making a song with Anjero, although it’ been a while since I worked on it. The track I bring you makes me remember why I like Downtempo music. Maybe it’s the harmony of it, or the nice layers of sounds which makes me float. It relaxes me, but at the same time makes me enter in a kind of brainstorming, motivating me to do something. And these aren’t mere words, or some cliche review… but what nice downtempo makes me feel.

Artist – Anjero
Song – Air
Genre – Downtempo / Eletronic / Aerial music?

#16 Atentado Napalm – Tempos Modernos

I should had done this post before because I listen to this group two months ago…but here we are. So I went to São Paulo… yes, I’m currently living in Brazil, and when walking along the Avenida Paulista I came across this tall dude selling  CDs. He’s from a group called Atentado Napalm, and was selling their 2013 album for just 5 or 10 reais, I can’t remember now. But even it it was 10 reais, it’s just 2.41€, which is nothing…

After buying the album I got a good surprise. As a note, I have to say that I’ve bought it to support these guys even without knowing it they were any good. So I got intrigued by the album’s name. It’s called “Pronto Como Um Macaco Para Ser Lançado Ao Espaço”, which can be translated into “Ready as a monkey to be launched into space”. Hahaha, cool name right? What will be this work about?

Of course I’m not gonna do an album review, hoping you will listen to it =). But I can say that a lot of the tracks included were quite good. My favorite ones were (are) “Queimadura química” (Chemical burn), “O clã das rimas voadoras” (The flying rhymes’ clan), “Siglas” (Acronyms), and my favorite by far – “Tempos Modernos” (Modern times). This last one made me remember of Valete’s track “Nossos tempos”.

Are you ready to be launched into space?

Artists – Atentado Napalm
Song – Tempos Modernos

I think you can download this album for free but I didn’t find a link. To buy a hard copy contact the group via Facebook. For now I let you with my favorite track:

Note: When I tried to convert Reais in Euros I’ve used a conversor online. When typing my search for it I’ve wrote “conversor de moerdas” wrongly… Portuguese speakers will get it hehehe
