Uncorrupted Tropical Wave (1984-2011) is a compilation of tropically unconventional Brazilian music produced exclusively by DIY recording artists from several parts of Brazil - featuring unobvious tracks by Duplexx, Satanique Samba Trio, Tetine, Shiva Las Vegas, Objeto Amarelo, Karine Alexandrino, Mueptemo, W, Divergencia Socialista & O Grito Mudo.

Borne out of the Slum Dunk radio sessions - the weekly radio program hosted by Eliete Mejorado & Bruno Verner aired on Resonance Fm 104.4 in London from 2002 to 2008 - Uncorrupted Tropical Wave (1984-2011) gives continuity to releases such as Slum Dunk Presents Funk Carioca (Mr Bongo 2004) & The Sexual Life of The Savages - Underground Post Punk from Sao Paulo, (Soul Jazz Records 2005) breakthrough albums curated by Tetine

Based on a specific scene of overlooked Brazilian artists who have continuously produced music independently for a number of years around the cities of Sao Paulo, Fortaleza, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro & Brasilia, as well as, artists who have at some point worked together on music collaborations or art projects, the album brings an unusual mix of early tropical post punk, baile funk, post-samba, electronica, experimental drum machine pop, lo-fi, spoken word, new wave & ambient pieces, written between 1984-2011 and mostly self-released locally from cassette tapes to CDs and white labels.

It comes with 17 hard-to-find tracks written by local musicians, poets, artists & writers who kept their music identity intact along the years.

Uncorrupted Tropical Wave(1984-2011) is a fresh sample of the uncorrupted, politically inventive, naïve, dissent and unforced anti-mainstream sound actions that took place in the country as opposed to Brazil’s now well-known mainstream pop or the usual clichés made-for-export. Dig it & you'll find great music to your ears!
