BONDE DO ROLÊ "BIBLIA ROSA" EP

In order to shorten the wait for their much anticipated, upcoming album, Bonde Do Rolê just released an impromptu EP called “Biblia Rosa”, which reflects on various moral scandals shaking Brazil lately. The existence of “pink books” was a much discussed topic in recent weeks in Brazilian media. It´s a type of book found in guest rooms of selected 5* hotels in Brazil. Pink books feature pictures of expensive escort-women, many of them C-list celebrities that decide to make a living with prostitution.
The EP additionally features “Rainha Do Darks”, a track dealing with fundamentalist Christian preachers agitating against gay culture in Brazil. Collaborators on the EP are Brazilian bass and Jersey club kings Maffalda, New Orleans bounce legend Big Freedia and Rio funk MC Diogo.

Brazilian bass music lately has done quantum leaps. For long, Brazil was excluded from affordable technology due to absurd custom taxes. Today, thanks to the internet, young producers from across Brazil get unprecedented access to cracked software, online tutorials and music from around the world like never before. The result is a huge new wave from Brazil of bass music inspired music hybrids that fuse the best homegrown grooves with transnational low-end elements. New genres such as baile trap, favela twerk or rasteirinha as well as other bass bastards are represented by artists such as Tropkillaz, Omulu, Sants, Cybass, Maffalda, Carlos, Pesadão Tropical and last but not least, Viní.

Viní is a 22 year old producer and DJ from São Paulo, who has long been influenced by international bass music but also by the vibes of the “fluxos” – the baile funk culture on the streets of São Paulo´s outskirts. Man Recordings inspired Viní since his adolescence when he used to listen all volumes of the seminal “Funk Mundial” series. This series brought producers from Europe and the US such as Stereotyp, Sinden, Oliver Dollar or Feadz amongst others, together with baile funk MCs from Rio and anticipated today´s Brazil bass sound. Viní says: “For me it’s a great honour to write my name in the history of the label that inspired me at the beginning, where I could see big names of the current scene as Diplo, Crookers, Douster, Deize Tigrona, Edu K and many others releasing tracks that have become classics.”

Viní named his debut after “Coringa”, the Portuguese equivalent name for the split personality character of The Joker in Batman. It´s a tribute to role plays which are popular amongst São Paulo youths using names and dress elements from comic villains, easily to adopt, yet associated with a badass character and dress style, a Paulista interpretation of swag.

On the bass heavy opening track of the EP, “Vai”, Viní moves from an 808 driven crunk beat into dembow territory, “Bandida Arlequina” sports the seductive rasteirinha beat, a fusion of baile funk and dembow, which currently is all the rage in Brazil. “Agente De Caos” kicks off with an amazing collage of the urban sounds audible at the “fluxos”, motorcycle roaring, police sirens, gun shots and frantic laughter which leads into another rasteirinha groove. And finally, there´s “Coringa” in which rasteirinha clashes onto trap inspired grooves.

The “Coringa” EP by Viní. Four amazingly fresh tracks from one of Brazil´s hottest new artist.

Early DJ support from Toddla T, Feadz, Mixhell, Schlachthofbronx, Daniel Haaksman, Sinden, Douster, Bert On Beats, Milangeles, DJ Orgasmik, Jess+Crabbe and many more!
