Grupo Controle Digital 'A Festa E Nossa' LP
Soundway Records delivers a beautifully remastered reissue of Brazilian duo
Grupo Controle Digital’s only album, “A Festa E Nossa”. First released in 1988,
the album is now housed in a tip-on heavyweight sleeve with restored artwork.
With the title track “A Festa E Nossa” having recently circulated the last few
years in the DJ sets of influential tastemakers, the album has become highly
sought after by electronic fans and collectors alike. Lo-fi synths and cruising bass
lines permeate the record, influenced by the group’s Brazilian contemporaries
at the time such as Tim Maia, Claudio Zoli, Secos E Molhados, and rock outfit
Made In Brazil.
Band members Billy Jaguar and Gel Valiery regularly performed in various
groups in Sao Paulo throughout the 80s and 90s, but after Gel passed away,
Grupo Controle Digital was no more - the band and the album faded into
obscurity and Billy became a priest, working with gospel music. It remained
that way until Brazilian DJ Millos Kaiser (from label Selva Discos, and one half
of the Brazilian street party group Selvagem) tracked down the remaining
member of Grupo Controle Digital to be able to include one of their tracks
on the highly anticipated Soundway compilation “Onda De Amor: Synthesized
Brazilian Hits That Never Were (1984-94)”, which was released in July 2018.
