Viní´s debut “Coringa” EP on Man Recordings, which was released in last July, propelled the 22-year old producer from São Paulo to international attention. He is now considered one of the big new talents of the new wave of baile funk where São Paulo has become the new innovation-hub, in which baile funk´s trademark rhtyhm is combined with bass music styles from across the world. In the meantime, Viní had a slot on Branko´s recent São Paulo Boiler Room session and a release in the prestigious Upper Cuts series on Enchufada followed.
And now there´s the “Coringa Remix” EP which connects with Vinís kaleidoscopic approach to low end sounds. The opening remix of Viní´s “Vai” comes from Kking Kong of Lisbon, who shaped the the original track to a twerked dembow banger. Teenage producer Sydney from Rio De Janeiro, an artist from Omulu´s Arrastão label, goes back to baile funk´s legendary Tamborzão rhythm in his version of “Bandida Arlequina”. São Paulo´s Sants, one of the megacity´s hottest names in bass – he has already released his abstract sound science on labels such as London´s Trapdoor – strips down Viní´s “Agente Do Caos” to the bare essentials. Call it minimal funk! The EP gets finally rounded up by Flying Buff´s rework of “Coringa”. Flying Buff are also from São Paulo and represent the more big staged trap sound.
With the “Coringa Remix” EP Viní once more displays the future sound of Brazilian and lusophone bass music!
DJ support by Feadz, Branko, Daniel Haaksman, Poirier, Peter Kruder, Toy Selectah and many more!

If you’re anything like us then you’re probably going nuts over the sheer amount of incredible music that is coming out of São Paulo’s baile funk scene. As Rio lost its monopoly over the genre, a host of new producers started popping up everywhere in Brazil bringing all sorts of new influences into this genre that is going through a whole new golden age.
This is where VINÍ comes in, a São Paulo-based producer who’s quickly becoming one of the stand-out names in the scene propelled by a strong debut EP on Man Recordings earlier this year – as well as a spot on Branko’s recent Boiler Room album release party in São Paulo, where the 22-year-old fuses baile funk’s recognisable rhythm with all sorts of influences from grime to electro, creating a very personal sound in the process.
Preferido sees VINÍ solidify his style with a straightforward baile funk anthem, complete with looping vocal chops, hard-hitting beats, bleepy synths, motorcicle samples and the mandatory vocal hook that will get stuck in your brain for weeks. Basically everything you need to go wild on a dancefloor, which is precisely what this track is meant to do.
Watch this space for more Viní soon, the “Coringa” remix EP is out mid November!

The list is crazy long and full of great artists, some of them huge players in today´s dance music scene. Read the full list below! It reads a bit like the A-Z of tropical bass music and the coolest non 4/4 club music of the past decade, doesn´t it?
