Palma Dulce : Sintoma [TTR083]

Palma Dulce is a project by Clayton Borges, a 24-year-old music producer, born in the Cerrado, in the heart of Brazil.
The passion for the idea of synthesizing sounds came at a very young age, fiddling with guitar pedals and building noise boxes, always flirting a lot with the domination of sound technologies. Doing live acts or DJing, he always carries synthetic timbres, ethereal textures and emotionally sculpted chords.”

Craca : Humo Serrapilheira [TTR082]

Craca is the ‘alterego’ of music producer and visual artist Felipe Julián, considered a kind of ‘Amon Tobin pulled from Tom Zé’. A trash-messianic being that rises from the depths to establish playful chaos at parties and festival stages, putting the audience to dance with his surrealist performance of music in sync with videomapped image.
His projects received several awards, such as the Brazilian Music Award, the Music Professionals Award and the Catavento Trophy for his body of work.”

“Opening the 2022 cycle of releases, we are happy to welcome Pérola Branca to the family. The Brazilian duo formed by Mandruvá and AVGVSTVS presents their brand new EP Tudo Que Era Sólido Desmanchou No Ar, which translates to ‘All That Is Solid Has Crumbled In The Air’.

The EP had a long construction, natural and with a lot of study, taking over 3 years to finish. Resulting in 3 original and completely organic tracks, filled with various instruments, percussions and ambient recordings. The work quickly takes us to different corners of the planet, it is tied together with continuity and presents a vintage, vinyl aesthetic.”

“Happy birthday to us!

In celebration of our 6th anniversary, we’re proud to present our annual V/A. This year we bring you a double gift, a two volume compilation featuring over 20 Brazilian artists, showcasing the variety of our experimental electronic music. What we call ‘Downtempo’ is a mix of many different styles, with subjective touches that are hard to name, making it difficult to put them in a box. But they do have things in common, and that’s what we search for, it doesn’t have to be named, it just needs to be felt. That’s what you will always find here at Tropical Twista: different, borderless, genre-less, music with a twist.

Today we’re presenting you the first volume of our compilation, it was very carefully curated and with lots of love and dedication involved. Our music is free, as always, but consider making a donation, as all profits from this V/A will be given back to the artists for 1 year. Help us support them in these difficult times. Volume 2 will come very soon, so make sure you stay tuned!

A new cycle begins for Tropical Twista and we couldn’t be happier. We are very grateful for all the love and support so far.”

Biota : Sistema Organico [TTR074]

Biota represents the symbiotic coexistence of flora & fauna, bridging ancient & modern, utilizing contrast to create colorful diversity.
Their journey is exploration of sound and movement, driven by aesthetics of sound art, cinematic atmosphere, psychedelia and the gritty roots of blues and rock&roll.

In Sistema Organico, the Israelian duo Roman Galperin & Moses Chimen deliver a variety of sonic textures, from spacey feedback guitars through tasty analog synths, forest flutes, traditional percussion, shamanic vibes and more delights – all composed into musical moods to dive into.

The whole piece is inspired by the meditative depths of the natural world, a tribute to the forest, the jungle, the great rivers and thoughts about our relationship with them as human beings.”

Various : Quintessence [TTR068]

“In July 2015 a new electronic music label was born in Brazil. Amidst the rise of many new talents in need of space to show their work, Tropical Twista Records started with the idea to give voice to these brilliant artists, from Brazil and the rest of the world.

Five years later, the label stays true to the mission of releasing new and interesting people, spotlighting Brazilian and South American artists. Beyond that, TTR feeds the underground electronic music scene, encouraging and sharing its music in a broad and accessible way.

Quintessence is the closure of this first 5 year cycle: we gathered all elements of the previous years to give birth to a new energy, expansive, dynamic, long lasting and capable of creating new ideas, breaking paradigms every time.”
