Man 090 VINÍ "CORINGA REMIX" EP

coringa-7w copy

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.

VINÍ

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!

Mahmundi “Setembro”

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013
Mahmundi "Setembro"

 

Mahmundi is Marcela Vale an ex stage technician at the legendary venue Circo Voador in Rio. She’s part of the new generation of Rio musicians, like Castello Branco and Cícero, but she has taken a more synthpop approach rather than MPB. This is her second EP and it finds her more introspective, differently to her eighties style synthpop hit “Calor do Amor” which made her name.

Again it’s a free download, go to her site and click on the cover.

Cícero - Sabado

 

Another free album from Brazil, this time the absolutely delightful “Sabado” by Cícero. This is the second release from this quintet from Botafogo who had critical acclaim with their first album, “Cançoes de Apartamento”. Again following the business model of the free download this will have a CD and vinyl release.  It sounds just like the cover looks, that laid back late afternoon feeling. well recommended.

Castello Branco, “Serviço” (2013)

Castello Branco, “Serviço” (2013)

 

Man ring meister, Daniel, is on his hols so I’m going to post some new Brazilian releases that will wile your autumn hours (or our spring). All these releases are free to download, the artists having taken the now standard route of ignoring any type of release tied to a record company and putting the albums up for free download on their sites.

So first up is “Serviço”By Castello Branco, who is Lucas Castello Branco originally from rock band R.Sigma. This is quite a traditional sounding Brazilian album with it’s feet firmly planted in eighties MPB, which is no bad thing. A gentle listen with vocal and instrumental tracks, so if that’s your thing, it’s worth downloading.
