Far Out Recordings is an independent record label based in London that specializes in releasing quality Brazilian music from both new and established Brazilian artists such as Joyce, Marcos Valle, Azymuth, Arthur Verocai, the Ipanemas, Sabrina Malheiros, Binario and Zeep.
In 2009 Joe Davis' Far Out Recordings celebrates it's 15th anniversary with a back catalogue of CD, LP and Digital releases now stretching towards the 150 mark.
Far Out also releases music from European and US musicians and producers who share the label’s appreciation of the Brazilian vibes such as Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1), Andy Votel (Finders Keepers), Nicola Conte (Blue Note), Zeep, Troubleman (Mark Pritchard) and Marc Mac (4hero)
Formed in 1994 by London born record producer & Brazilian aficionado Joe Davis, Far Out has released new recordings from Brazilian superstars Marcos Valle, Joyce, Azymuth and Wilson Das Neves whilst at the same time discovering and nurturing the next wave of Brazilian artists such as Sabrina Malheiros and Binario .
Far Out has also reissued forgotten masterpieces from Milton Nascimento & Roberto Quartin and created successful compilations such as Brazilika’, which has previously been compiled by Kenny Dope, 4Hero and Andy Votel.
The name Far Out is almost a by word for quality new Brazilian music – you won’t find a Brazilian music compilation worth its salt without at least one track from the label on it and to date we have licensed tracks to over three hundred compilations while our music has been synched on numerous TV shows , films and adverts including CSI Miami, Nike and Clarks.
