Disco Tropicalia

Today I've really been enjoying the Brazilian-flavoured disco gem "Chove Chuva / Mas Que Nada" from Samba Soul. This funky classic was released on the group's 1977 self-titled album and was originally written in the mid 1960's by Brazil's Tropicalia legend Jorge Ben. The song features all kinds of great sample and breaks material, possibly making it a great candidate for a future Cabana Disco re-edit. That being said the original song definitely stands on it's own two feet making it one of the better tracks produced by this late 70's Brazilian disco group.
