about

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.
