Caipirinha

Adel Dior & Jammin’ Unit and a shit load of guests rock this crazy-assed album that aids Caipirinha Music’s global domination of all music non antiquity. [You should check out SUM: 1 to get a slanted taste for where the Unidentified Musical Objects flow.]

These guys recorded this shit all over the world in Berlin, New York, Sydney, Frankfurt, and Bozeman, Montana. They have a tight grip on the new sensation electric groove sick motherfuckin’ shit. No one has been able to pigeonhole this style of electric speed pop yet, but UMO’s crazy energy is right on!

The cats’ work with Terrible on the cut “In Memoriam of Chou Chou” sounds like an acid washing of Herbie Hancock’s “Rockit” scratch breaks. Helped out by brothers from Kerosene on “Ox” we catch a squeaky clean futura dance Berlin style, leather pants, new VW beetle, fashion mogul groove. Heroin?

Beautifully done. Cutting hedge production and writing. The joke’s on us. Caipirinha Productions, 1120 5th Ave. #15A, New York, NY 10128
