I love jazzy Brazilian/Latin house as well!
In addition to everything that Michael Aregood mentioned, I highly
recommend the Italian label Far Out who puts out the band Azymuth as well
as other great Brazilian stuff. Far Out puts out "Brazilian Love Affair
vol 1 & 2" which I think should be in your record crate (as well as many
other great records.)
I also can't help but second Michael's recommendation for anything by Joe
Claussell on Ibadan Records. His stuff is so distinctive and amazing.
Other great comps in this area are "More Bossa" (remix album) on Yellow,
"Bossa Mundo" on Wave/Yellow, "Harry the Bastard presents Club 'H'" on
Statra, "Tom Middleton presents 'A Jedi's Night Out'" on I forget the label
(DMC?)...but it is great! and don't forget the Da Lata full length "Songs
from the Tin" on Palm Pictures.
Other labels to keep an ear out for:
Paper, Guidance, Nuphonic, Ibadan, Seasons, Wave Music
Artists to keep an ear out for:
Tom & Joyce (Yellow)
Ian Pooley (V2)
Faze Action (Nuphonic)
Francois K (Wave)
Crazy Penis (Paper)
Mateo & Matos (Spiritual Life Music)
Don't forget to keep an eye/ear out for Mark Turner's "Jazzadelica" show on
the radio and internet. He covers this part of the dance music spectrum
Finally, I also urge you to check out anything by an artist called "16b" or
Omid Nourizadeh (on Alola and Airtight lables.) While most would classify
his music as Deep House, I get the same vibe from his stuff that I do from
some of the other more Latin/Brazilian-influenced house. Very interesting
melodies or percussion or both on most of his stuff.
Good luck on your new residency (where/when is it?) and I have to admit I
