Premiere: Zopelar - Estrada (Blaq Numbers)
In Blaq Numbers final curation of 2020 they raise a glass to Takis Shelter with a diverse collection of jams showcasing everything from blissed out jazz, funked up house, rich balearic trips and a little sprinkle of joy inducing disco. These come from a selection of the German labels good friends from across the planet who kindly contributed their tracks to make the release happen.
100% of the proceeds from 'One For the Shelter' will go directly to Takis Shelter. As someone who has his roots in the music scene, Takis turned his attention from partying all night whilst running his own nightclub, to well, partying all night with the hundreds of dogs and cats that he saved from landfills and rubbish dumps in Crete. After giving up everything he owned to open his shelter, he nearly had to give up the refuge but donations made it possible for him to go on.
The compilation is a nod to all the incredible, selfless work that Takis has put into caring for these animals and will go towards ensuring they are looked after, fed and can eventually find their way to a new loving home. An amazing cause which you can find more about HERE.
We are very excited to bring you Zopelar's contribution. Currently based in São Paulo, Zopelar has graced the likes of Sonar and Dekmantel Festival and has releases on Axe of Wax, Apron Records and Soul Clap to name a few. 'Estrada', his debut on Blaq Numbers, explores the intersections between electronica, funk and jazz, with acid laced, cosmic, melody lines guiding the track atop deliciously deep chords and crunchy, broken percussion.
