London-via-Angola producer Brey's debut EP, Brasil (artwork above), is out this week on vinyl, but it won't see digital release until April 2. We've already shared the wild video for "Bengela," Brasil's opening track, and now we're offering a download of its second track, "Juno." Here, Brey expands the boisterous sound of "Bengela," overlaying strings, horns, and raucous electric guitars over big, lively percussion. The track could be superficially grouped in with other syncopated UK garage rhythms, but this is a bold, orchestrated work that subverts the genre's existing palette.
