THROWBACK THURSDAY PLAYLIST #4 CROOKERS “PARA DE GRAçINHA” FT. MC LEKA

THROWBACK THURSDAY PLAYLIST #4 CROOKERS "PARA DE GRAçINHA" FT. MC LEKA

Quite likely in the top five of the best selling tracks on Man Recordings of all time, “Para De Graçinha” ft. MC Leka emerged at a moment when Crookers were still two unknown young producers from Milan. It was the MySpace days, and when Daniel Haaksman accidentally landed on their page discovering on their MySpace music player that they sampled Mr. Catra from his “Rio Baile Funk Favela Booty Beats” compilation for their debut “Aguas De Março” single, he knew these guys were a force to reckon with. The Funk Mundial release by Crookers became a club staple and lay the blue print for the fusion of baile funk lyrics mixed with electro beats. Promptly, half a year after their Man Rec debut, Crookers exploded on the international scene with a stream of hot, rowdy fidget house remixes that eventually landed them a world hit: Their version of Kid Cudi´s “Day + Night”, which wasn´t originally even comissioned by Fool´s Gold but first circulated as a bootleg mix (and wasn´t released on the original single release of “Day + Night”).

INSIDE THE MIND OF FAVELA FUNK

INSIDE THE MIND OF FAVELA FUNK

poster_favela-funk

In the documentary “Inside the Mind of Favela Funk”, two Dutch female directors dive into the world of Rio baile funk. The film explores the connections between the lyrics of baile funk and the personal, daily (love) life of its protagonists, their surroundings being shaped by a lawless sub culture of drug gangs, violence and sex. “Inside The Mind Of Favela Funk” is an introspection into Brazilian underground music and its gender values. Catch it at a documentary festival near you. Or watch the trailer below.
