Far Out Recordings was founded in 1994 by London DJ and record producer Joe Davis. His passion for Brazilian music took him to Brazil where his enthusiasm for record collecting led him to re-discover some of his musical heroes bringing them together for his first label compilation, 'Friends From Rio', which put the label on the map before Davis re-formed legendary acts from Azymuth to Joyce to Marcos Valle and Os Ipanemas to go back in to the studio under his production and form successful multi-decade relationships.

Far Out's mission is to bring the sound of Brazil to the world from the classic to cutting edge, Far Out Recordings is the sound of quality Brazilian music recording and releasing both new and established Brazilian artists such as Azymuth, Joyce, Marcos Valle, Banda Black Rio, Arthur Verocai, Leila Pinheiro, Nana Vasconcelos, Os Ipanemas, Sabrina Malheiros, Clara Moreno, Rabotnik and Binario.
