My favourite is Side B. Sounds like a Remix of Super Mario.

I disagree with Wolfy666 so much. This EP was so different when it came out, really changing the face of the summer vibe of D&B for ever. It opened the door for the slew of Brazilian style tracks, many of which have stood up well, helping to bring in a bright, jazzy and uplifting soulful vibe to the music.

'Carnaval' is a slick, sexy summer track, 'Sambassim' is a rich sun drenched samba latin gem more at home in a Giles Peterson set than Fabio or Bukem. 'Secrets Of Floating Island' is a more conventional roller but has that driving bass, slick beats and liquid flavours. 'Samba Raro' shows Markys' talents at making beautifully crafted liquid funk.

Essential summer vibes to start a liquid set or play alongside a mix of genres

Well produced drum'n'bass with a brazilian fusion edge.
The kind of breaks which will appeal to the broken beats/latin percussion crowd whilst retaining a tuff Planet V sound.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. A good purchase.
