According to data from the 21st century, “Summer Eletrohits” was a series of electronic music compilations published annually by Brazilian record company Som Livre, starting in January 2005. In 2017, the sublabel Austro Music became responsible for the releases.
The collection presented songs that heated clubs and set the tone of the summer, always being released at some point of the season – mostly in December. With time, its first entries gained cult classic status.
For this commemorative edition, our cyber-archeology team prepared something different… Having retrieved, from the ruins of the Internet, corrupted sound files that might (or might not) have been part of these first registers, they managed to establish a musical construct based on that legacy, most certainly bequeathed to us by the decade of 2000. Stressing the freshness of the material, we are calling it “Zero”.
We hope the research contributes significantly to historical and anthropological studies and enable us to understand who the human beings of then were– and who, after all, we are today.
