PINDUCA - VAMOS FARREAR (DANIEL HAAKSMAN EDIT), FREE DL!

The state of Pará (located in North-East of Brazil, in the Amazon area) has long been a hotbed for musical innovations. It´s an area where many musical strings from the whole South American continent are crossing, blending and giving birth to very unique regional music styles. Due to its remote situation, Pará for long did it´s own thing. As Brazilian styles such as samba and forró came in from the south of the giant country, sounds like merengue, calypso and cumbia flowed in from the north in equal measure.

All these influences poured into the region´s first home-grown pop music movement in the 1970s, when artists like Pinduca adapted the rainforest´s traditional Afro-indigenous carimbó rhythm to a dance band format. The super musical hybridity of the carimbó is one reason why the genre had a pan-Latin-American appeal for various decades. The other reason: It´s just great party music. And carimbó´s anthem is undoubtedly Pinduca´s “Vamos Farrear” (Portuguese for “Let´s roam”). Praising the joy that drinking cachaça can bring, “Vamos Farrear” is Brazil´s 1970s pre-cursor to Riva Starr´s “Yesterday, I got drunk”.

Daniel Haaksman has now created the contemporary update of this great Brazilian anthem in a club friendly edit that already smashed dancefloors on his recent tour through New Zealand and Australia. Play it out loud, and make sure those cachaça´s are downed! Grab it for free from below.

STEVE AOKI BRASILIFIED

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.
