Another case of the Brazilian musical influence!
Samba & Brazilian-style melody with electronic/deep house:
“Belo Horizonti (Brix Edit)” by The Heartists (a Basement Jaxx alias).
From the 1994 – 1997 compilation Atlantic Jaxx Recordings: a Compilation.
Thanks to Armando for putting me on to the track!
