Mental Abstrato is a trio group from Sao Paulo, Brazil, who bring together the essence of various music from Nu-Jazz, Samba, Bossa Nova, House, Dub to Hip Hop in their experimental way.
Since the trio (Omig One, Calmao Tranquis and Guimas Bass) started to create music together in 2005, they have participated in a number of projects including the production of two remix singles distributed by Italian label IRMA Records, ‘Space Age Mama Jama’ and ‘Everlasting Rose’ in 2009. Mental Abstrato released their debut album ‘Pure Essence’ in 2010 via Japanese label Goon Trax with special appearances by Ohmega Watts (of Lightheaded), Awon, Logics and Newsense (of ArtOfficial) and others. They are currently working on their second album to be released in the near future with some new collaborations.
