RIP AMAZING CLAY

null

We just got word from Rio that DJ Amazing Clay, one of baile funk´s pioneer DJs, passed away last night of cancer. RIP Clay, you´ll be sadly missed. Besides being long term DJ for Rio´s Curtisom Rio sound system, the Amazing Clay studio has been pivotal for the funk carioca sound on Man Recordings. It was there where we recorded all acappellas for the Funk Mundial series and enjoyed long, sweaty sessions of sample swapping and beat making. Accompanying you on tour through Germany and Poland with your MPC was a blast, and showed me a lot of the magic of live MPCing. You´ll be in our hearts forever.

With twenty-eight years (yes, that’s 28) of DJ experience, Amazing Clay is one of Rio’s most experienced DJs. One of the founders of the „Equipe Curtisom Rio“, one of the earliest sound systems of baile funk, Clay started to DJ in 1980 when the original Rio funk scene was moving from the 1970s sound of disco, soul and funk to early American rap. When „Planet Rock“ hit Rio in 1982, Amazing Clay played it at his parties. Ever since, he has seen various forms of Rio baile funk emerge and vanish – like a rock, Amazing Clay is here to stay.Today Amazing Clay is DJing at more then five parties every week, most notably at the ‘Boquierao’ baile next to Rio’s Santos Dumont airport. Clay s the producer of a huge range of big baile funk artists like Mr. Catra, Deize Tigrona, MC Gringo, MC Dido or Bonde da Oskley. He is the creator of the „Montagem Bonanza“, which introduced the Bonanza theme in the baile funk scene. Recently, Clay produced large parts of MC Gringo´s „Gringão“ album, which currently receives critical acclaim around the world. Following the acclaim of his “Baile Funk Masters” release, Amazing Clay recently remixed Munk´s “Live Fast Die Young” as well as João Gilberto´s “Bim Bom” and Luiz Bonfá + Maria Toledo´s “Samburá” for the “Bossa Do Morro” compilation on Universal Jazz Germany. His remix of Fréderic Chopin´s “Etude In C Minor” received widespread acclaim. For his live performances, Clay plays live on a MPC.
