Sabrina Malheiros


Far Out Recordings

Released: 10th October 2011 | 8 track bossa nova album
The heavyweight 180g vinyl LP edition of Rio's nu-bossa star Sabrina Malheiros' third original studio album. The first time a Sabrina Malheiros album has been on vinyl there is huge anticipation for 'Dreaming' LP. With more electronic sounds in the mix than 'Equilibria' and 'New Morning' it's the perfect record to debut on LP. 'Dreaming' combines the minimal electronic soul inspired sound of her debut Equilibria with the sweeping organic Brazilian pop of New Morning and traditional sounds of Brazil. Linking past and present Malheiros mixes seductive styles to create a truly original sound for the future. Dreaming is her finest work yet confirming Malheiros as one of the finest female Brazilian songwriters of her generation. Featuring leading Brazilian musicians including Alex Malheiros (Azymuth); Jesse Sadoc (Marcos Valle); Alfredo Cardim (Joyce); Robertinho Silva (Milton Nascimento) and written and co-produced with Sabrina by partner Daniel 'Venom' Maunick (Viper Squad / son of Bluey Incognito) the record is a true progression finding a beautiful place between nu-Rio, classic Brazil, and the complex melodic electronic music emerging from the post-dubstep and post-drum & bass London soundscape. Leading the nu-bossa generation with the likes of Bebel Gilberto, Malheiros has built a fanbase around the world addicted to her distinctive blissful sound. With her debut album 'Equilibria' on Far Out in 2005 Sabrina Malheiros arrived in a wave of instant acclaim playing her debut shows in the UK and Japan. The 2006 remix album 'Vibrasons' – including Nicola Conte, Quantic and Kenny Dope reworks – was followed with sophomore album 'New Morning' – declared the best album of summer 2008 Evening Standard. A bigger production, featuring string arrangements from Arthur Verocai, the album broke Sabrina in America with debut tours in Germany, Holland and a UK return. As the daughter of Alex Malheiros, bass player of Far Out's legendary Brazilian group Azymuth Sabrina was born to sing bossa nova and write ground-breaking music. Her classical contemporary Brazilian blend takes a number of surprising routes. On 'Fragil' Sabrina employs renowned samba percussionist Robertinho Silva to deliver her delicate take on Brazil's African routes; 'Bobeira' is a breezy chill-out. Sabrina's special pattern for writing music (alone, with her father Alex and partner Daniel) brings recurring chords and sequences with a huge variety of influences and ideas over eight tracks. Sabrina shows just how far this writing talent stretches as she brings things right in to modern electronic-era with big dub bass, scratching, together with trademark soft acoustic guitar and harmonies on 'Paranoia'. Altogether Malheiros' third full-length record is a lyrical and melodic dream to take her star far higher.
