Batu

This Brighton, England-based six-piece band mingled ethnic drumming with house music, with vocals by Sharon Scott (who previously worked with Soul II Soul). Formed in 1992, they attracted the powerful advocacy of Kiss-FM disc jockey Patrick Forge (b. 21 May 1962, Ipswich, Suffolk, England) after they handed over a tape at a Talkin’ Loud Records club night in London. He was excited by the authentic Brazilian sounds the band created. Batu’s guitarist Chris Franck (b. 12 September 1968, Düsseldorf, Germany), after playing samba while studying for a degree in France, was tutored by two expatriate Brazilians, Pedro (guitar) and Beberto de Souza (octopusine percussion). Their debut single, ‘Seasons Of My Mind’/‘Hold It Now’, prefaced a samba/house contribution to Island Records’ Rebirth Of Cool series. Their feel for Latin music was profound: ‘What Batu are doing is taking an authentic approach to Brazilian music, but we’re 90s people, we come from a club culture. You can’t carry on making music now without being aware of hip-hop production.’ Franck and Forge carried on working together in Da Lata, with the latter also recording as part of Smoke City.
