NINOS DU BRASIL - Novos Misterios

Hospital Productions presents an exhilarating label debut by flamboyant Italian battery, Nicolö Fortuni and Nico Vascellari, aka Ninos Du Brasil. Novos Mistérios follows their debut LP for La Tempesta International/Tannen Records with an acutely stripped-down blend of mostly live" recorded percussion and explorative electronic sound design. The project, and album, is a radical inversion and consolidation of the duos respective backgrounds in performance art, punk and indie bands. Inspired by the febrile humidity and sensory overload of Brazilian carnival music, they temper layers of roiling, propulsive percussion with electronic drones, effects and tribalist vocals to militant, hypnotic effect. Six tracks charge between technoid polymetrics, kinky minimalism, and meditative ritual with particular focus on rhythmic, melodic cadence and carefully-constructed atmospheres, drawing lines between the avant-garde coda of William Winant and Indonesian Gamelan on "Essenghelo Tropical," to Cut Hands voodoo invocations on "Legi-ɬµs De Cupins," and the percussive moments of Brazilian metal legends on "Sepultura." Nicolo and Nico both emerged from the Italian punk and indie-rock scenes. Nico is also regarded as one of the worlds pre-eminent visual artists. He is represented by Monitor Gallery in Italy and Bugada & Cargnel in Paris, and participated in Biennale Venice and Manifesta7. The song "Sepultura" is also part of the soundtrack to Socrates One of Us, directed by Mimmo Calopresti, and Nicos Von Archive co-curator, Spanish film director Carlos Casas is producing an individual video for each track. NDB have also recently announced a 12" release for DFA, due summer 2014. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton. Album cover by renowned artist Luigi Ontani." - Hospital Productions.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
