We are not only trilled as a recording company to be able to realize this record but we are very proud to introduce this record to you with a poetic introduction written by our brother Almir Rosa.
I have long lost the habit of seeing old photographs. The moment is a classic of the 80s and 90s. Family gatherings where the photo books appeared amid the smell of coffee in the middle of the afternoon after a delicious and warmhearted lunch.
This ritual has marked many people, even today it happens in many families. It’s so important for us not to disconnect from the past, to look where we come from.
What if we could open a photo album from the future?
Berlin is a record that lives its own time, dilated, anachronistic, mystic and joker, it slides between rituals and swings that travel in bottomless pits, while it sees appear with the sunset the impossible right side of trees.
A record, a magical rift that casts violet light on what we live, turns our days warmed by the heat of affection and hope and even more radiantly it spreads golden seeds through the gardens of the future!
Berlin swings at the crossroads while photo books orbit it!”
