Haaaaa.haa….That guy’s face kills me….looks like a Brazilian Woody Allen doesn’t he….haaa.haaaaa
Here’s a few great Brazilian tracks I’ve just nicked from Olivier’s page on Fairtilizer. You might recall a few weeks ago we posted his traditional cumbia mix.
First up we have MC CREU with “Tipo Rei (Vs Samba – Phabyo DJ)” , a Baile Funk vibe.
Next we have MC HENRICO with “Eela que me provocar” which is kind of Baile Funk Pop
Finally we have MONTAGEM with “Que Isso Porra? (Tamborzão Parou)” which has, as you have already guessed, a Tamborzao vibe.
You can grab loads more of this kind of stuff from here http://www.funkneurotico.net
Thanks Olivier 🙂

Here’s a crazy mix of Cumbia, Electro, Baile Funk and all things Tropical by our homie JUAN DATA.
It’s not a conventional mix where you have 2/3 tracks playing on top of each other or just 2 tracks butted end to end as in most mixes. Juan goes a step further and does the following with his mixes:
“Now for all you DJ’s and turntablism connoiseurs wondering how Linyerismo was recorded let me tell you that the equipment used was a Macbook with Torq Connective, a Technics 1200MK2 turntable, a Denon two channel mixer and a Trigger Finger by M-Audio. Even though it might seem at times that it was edited in a loop sequencing software like Garage Band or Ableton Live, all the mixes were recorded in real time, with two channels only. Of course, it was recorded in ten million takes, so every time you hear more than two tracks playing at once (which is almost constantly) it means that I mixed two songs first, recorded it, then played it again and added a third one on top, and so on. That’s why it took me so long. And that’s also why there’s little bits where I come in slightly out of tempo”.
Well, I do know that dj’s like Joris Voorn are employing similar mixing techniques, as he did with his critically acclaimed ”BALANCE’ mix. It’s one possibility for ‘some’ of where the future is heading insofar as mix-tapes are concerned BUT maybe not for many others………a bit like the VINYL v CD v LAPTOP argument.
Anyway, it’s an action packed mix containing over 50 tracks loaded into 32 minutes and I REALLY ENJOYED IT 🙂
You can DOWNLOAD THE MIX HERE but check the tracklist from HERE.

Whilst we wait for the Princess’s new album to drop, I thought we’d take a step back and give you a TEASER of some great BAILE FUNK she did with KASSIANO & SUJIHNO.
AND SO….one hell of a TEASE we have too….THE ENTIRE KASSIANO ALBUM!….’EXCLUSIVAS DA NOSSA’.
Man, this came out a little while back, but it’s still DOPE, and most of it still sounds as fresh as the daisies!
It features cutz by Kassiano & Sujihno in collaboration with ZUZUKA-KA-KA-KA.
Some of u familiar with a classic BBC Comedy/Quiz show called “Shooting Stars’ will know what I mean by the extra -ka-ka-ka…..hee….heee…..and if you are not, well it’s meant to be complimentary!
The album includes PRIMERS such as “Ai Voce Gosta” with a great SWEET DREAMS sample and man, isn’t that sample just timeless.
There’s also BAILE FUNK SATISFACTION, yeah complete with a little bit of that world famous UNKLE KEITH GEETAR RIFF and a bit of POSH TOSH JAGGER…leave me alone to watch me cricket…u disgraceful bastards!
SO HERE IT IS: EXCLUSIVAS DA NOSSA
And get down and shake some BOOTY too to this great VID featuring The Warrior Princess, some of her dancer pals and Kassiano & Sujihno in da club!
AND FINALLY……Yes, you guessed it, GENERATION BASS bagged another BIG KISS from The Amazonian Warrior Princess……Man I think the whole of next week will have to be ZUZUKA-KA-KA-KA WEEK!…..haaa….haaaa…..
