Collection: MAIS UM

I first came across Mais Um after seeing the epically good Minyo Crusaders live at Le Guess Who in 2018. The show was a so good (and so much fun), it remains a complete stand out from the weekend, and with the line-up of the festival that year, that's really saying something. Having rinsed the record repeatedly and having sold a shed load via the shop since then, it was a surprise that Mais Um is actually based up the road in E17 and is home to loads of really great releases which we're now stocking. Here's a bit more about the label:

Named one of the UK’s ‘best boutique labels’ by The Guardian, Mais Um specialises in releasing music from international artists who fuse styles, disregards genres and irritate purists.

Launched in 2010 as an international platform for new sounds from Brazil, Mais Um became the go-to label for discovering the real sounds of exciting, contemporary South America via releases from artists such as Rodrigo Amarante (the composer of the theme music to Netflix’s Narcos), “Queen of the Amazon" Dona Onete, Elza Soares and her career-defining ‘A Mulher do Fim Do Mundo” and Sao Paulo’s Afro-jazz-punks Meta Meta.

In 2018 Mais Um opened its doors to artists from all corners of the globe, immediately finding success with Japan’s Minyo Crusaders. Since then releases from Beijing’s Howie Lee (“traditional Chinese references with wild electronic experimentation” Pitchfork), New Orleans-based ÌFÉ ("Electro-Jazz Fusions (that) taps into the Afro-Caribbean divine" Rolling Stone) and most recently Tonkori in the Moonlight (The Guardian’s Folk album of the month, February 2022) from Japanese-Ainu musician OKI have helped established Mais Um as a platform for forward-thinking international music.
