The influence of trap on Brazilian producers is birthing new projects on a monthly basis. New duo on the block, Flying Buff, have only be up on Soundcloud for a couple of weeks but their three virgin tracks sound well bacana. The stand out track is “Salve Xangô”, in which Flying Buff inject bass into a classic Afrosamba thus updating Brazilian music to the 21st century (much alike the now globally praised Tropkillaz did exactly one year ago). Grab Flying Buff´s tunes from below.

Who would ever thought we´d post a track by Steve “cake thrower” Aoki on the Man Rec blog? However, the eletromelody remix of Kabal Jr of Belém is so cheekily mixing up Aoki´s main hook with a brega beat and splinters of trap that we urgently had to share it. Download it for free from below.

We received more than a dozen contributions in our Banda Westfalica remix contest, ranging from interpretations with a Zouk Bass vibe to Steve Reich Marimba variations and even big room house remixes. Obviously it was really hard to pick the best two versions, but eventually we decided to choose the remixes from Doblhoff & Wiesflecker and Motin. Doblhoff & Wiesflecker impressed us with their twisted Afro Beat take on “K Le Pasa”, Motin´s tropical club version of “Hands Up” is programmed to get dancefloors ignited. Congratulations to the winners, many thanks for all other particpants for sending in their versions.
Listen to the winning remixes below. The full remix EP will be released March 11th. Watch this space for more news!
