Our man Viní from São Paulo was featured with a guest DJ mix on Daniel Haaksman´s Luso FM show and – caralho! – do we like it! It´s a perfect blend of bass with various grooves from around the Americas, listen to it below. Watch out for Viní in 2015!
A new documentary on baile funk in São Paulo was just released, looking at the fluxo parties that are regular events on the streets of Brazil´s megacity. These parties have a parallel with Rio de Janeiro’s baile funk events, open-air parties that welcome the local communities and offer a place for young musicians and dancers to make their mark.
The film shows the significance of these fluxo parties to local people and how the funk scene has developed in São Paulo, moving from its focus on funk ostentação (“show off” funk) to new styles like passinho do romano, and also highlights upcoming producers and deejays including MC Bin Laden and MC Brinquedo.
