Bodikhuu - Rio / Bodianova (LP)

$19.99

Bodikhuu is a producer and hip-hop obsessive from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, the world’s coldest capital city. He works as a crane operator and dreams of Brazil.

“I was stuck on a crowded bus listening to João Gilberto,” Bodikhuu said. “I closed my eyes and felt my spirit rise in the air.”

When winter came and it got too cold to work construction, Bodikhuu made “Rio.” The album is lush and tropical -- scratchy bossa nova, street noise, internet ephemera, fat drums, subtle turns, and the guiding hands of Bodikhuu’s favorite artists, Dilla and Damu the Fudgemunk. Composed on a battered MPC in a Soviet-era housing block on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, “Rio/Bodianova” is a love letter to Brazil, a place Bodikhuu knows only through music and his imagination.

“Rio” and “Bodianova” were originally released as digital EPs and have become classics in the small but passionate Mongolian hip-hop underground. This new LP combines these legendary releases -- the first time a Mongolian hip-hop record has been pressed to wax. We’re incredibly proud to release these songs in the format they deserve. The tracks have been fully remastered by Tim Stollenwerk. Artwork comes from hip-hop illustrator David Barnett (Curren$y, Erykah Badu). Limited run of 500 vinyl.
