Vasconcelos Sentimento (Guilherme Esteves) (todos los instrumentos, producción)
João Victor Fontoura (batería, produción).
"A residir no Rio de Janeiro, Guilherme Esteves, compositor, produtor e multi-instrumentista auto-didacta, chegou à conversa com Joe Davis, o fundador do selo britânico Far Out, a propósito da curiosa história de José Mauro pois foi Sentimento o responsável por finalmente fazer a ligação entre Davis e Mauro.
Depois do primeiro contacto com o jovem músico, o homem do leme da editora deu de caras com o seu som, “um mosaico de breaks lo-fi, jazz-ambient cósmico e funk cromático e instável”: “Nunca tínhamos ouvido nada assim antes, mas, curiosamente, parecia estar em casa na Far Out. Como se ele tivesse tirado pedaços de diferentes lançamentos do nosso catálogo, juntado toda a música dos 60s em diante que influencia tudo aquilo que fazemos, e recriasse essa magia de uma nova e excitante maneira”."
"(...) It was his fascination with his fellow countryman, the enigmatic, psychedelic 70s folk artist Jose Mauro, that led the young Vasconcelos Sentimento (real name Guilherme Esteves) to first make contact with Far Out. Coincidentally living in the same region as Mauro, Sentimento managed to track him down and put label boss Joe Davis in touch, after Davis had spent years of what felt like hopeless searching for the man many assumed dead.
When Joe and the Far Out team heard Guilhermes’ own music, there was a sense of shock. “It was unlike anything we’d heard before, but it also sounded curiously at home on Far Out. Like it had taken little pieces of different releases from the catalogue, and all the music from the ‘60s onwards that influences everything we do, and recreated all that magic in such an exciting new way”.
Indeed, Sentimento is not afraid to admit what he himself sees as acts of theft. (Furto=Theft in Portuguese). But while the debate surrounding the ethics of sampling is a never ending one, Sentimento’s music - while it does contain the odd sample, including an interview with Joe Davis himself, “One For The Masta Digga”) - steals in an entirely different way. His creative process involves an intensive period, in which he’ll listen to just one artist or song over and over, for days and weeks on end. Then he’ll head to his rudimentary bedroom studio, which, as he puts it, is “built for speed”, hit record and “blurt” whatever comes out. “I never spend more than a day working on any one song idea”...
Picasso once said “lesser artists borrow; great artists steal”. And it’s through this process of ‘Furto’ that Vasconcelos Sentimento has somewhat ironically cultivated a sound that is unmistakably his own." (Extracto del texto de presentación del sello discográfico)
