Fila Brazillia Maim That Tune: 20th Anniversary Edition on Limited Edition Import 180g 2LP
Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Formed in 1990 by Steve Cobby and David McSherry, Fila Brazillia played electronica, ambient, techno, rock, funk and dub, and are often described as downtempo. Fila Brazillia's sophomore set, 1995's Maim That Tune, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2015, was dedicated to the deceased stand-up comedian, satirist and social critic Bill Hicks, and it finds the duo really mixing it up, constructing various takes on techno while incorporating elements of hip-hop, house, African music and a continuous stream of luxuriously lush ambient funk.
"Following on from their slinky New Codes, New Chaos album, Maim That Tune finds Fila still tainting their leftfield grooves with stylistic impurities. And now they're deepening the channels which irrigate their tempos with liquid mellotronics. Fila set the controls with an African mantra hovering on "A Zed & 2L's." The wah-wah house sound of "At Home In Space," the Spaghetti Western' influenced "Harmonicas Are Shite" and the scratch ‘n' hop knee-jerk of "Leggy" all pass without a slack-jawed vinyl skunker in earshot...Fila Brazilia are both weird and wonderful." - Veena Verdi, Muzik Magazine
