June 3, 2009

bondeThanks to our matey @ the great BOOTLEGUMACHINE, I was reminded that I need to do a post on this exciting band who hail from “Hot ZomWaters” (haa.haaa) in Mexico

Check out their MY SPACE for some brilliant Funk Carioca/Miami Bass & Ghetto Tech tunes including a great one featuring a guest vocal from ZUZUKA-KA-KA!

For now here’s a great remix of one of their tunes by LETTER D!

Funkeiros Zombies Asesinos(Letter D rmx)

Or BAILE FUNK, as we like to call it over here… this is a cut by OS HAWAIANOS on a classic FUNK riddim, which gets re-editted and re-used on the entire cd. So it’s all about the lyrics. Which I don’t understand 🙂 Check it out:

OS HAWAIANOS – DANCINHA DO BALANCE


HOME OF THE BAILE…

This just blew my mind. MAGA BO talking on his blog about the daily shootouts in his area in Rio, home of the BAILE FUNK, but also home to street violence, gang wars and drugwars. Damn… Sometimes it’s hard to grasp that the music that is being created there actually is an account of life in this area.

Here’s a nice bit of live BAILE FUNK for ya, recorded on the streets:
