Man Recordings is very proud to present the “Flex EP” by São Paulo DJ and producer Sants. Along with other names such as NeguimBeats, Psilosamples, Cybass, Tropkillaz, Bad $ista and Omulu, 22 year-old Sants is at the forefront of the new Brazilian beats and bass music scene. In this ambient diverse world of new music and no genre tags, Sants is well known for his distinct ability to digest a wide array of foreign influences and reinterpret them through the harsh lens of the Brazilian scenario, while still entrancing the ever-fickle tastes of the online music community.

“Noite Ilustrada”, his first full length album, was conceived during the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp in São Paulo. After gorging himself on laid-back Los Angeles beats by day and heavy London bass by night, Sants craved his own cocktail of sound, inspired by the constant bustle of a metropolitan night. With assistance from many of his Beatwise colleagues, he helped to illustrate the cityscapes and night scenarios average of the Sao Paulo nightlife. After recently starring on Mixmag’s compilation tape with Trapdoor, and a consistent EP “Chavoso”, Sants is eager to continue his international collaborations with conviction on his “Flex” EP.

“Flex” is a common term in Brazil for cars that run both on alcohol and gasoline and this is how he wants his music to work as. After a long period of listening just to trap beats, Sants decided to pull some effort shaping the middle-term of what it would be the interpretation of the Brazilian sound by a Brazilian who is nurturing on a diet of both UK bass and global music every single day. The result is the “Flex” EP, who finds home at Man Recordings, another influence for him. In the Eps five tracks, Sants draws club scenarios and urban scapisms of the suburbs of São Paulo by a view of a person who lives its night every single weekend.

Early DJ support by Gilles Peterson, Switch, Branko, Feadz, Munchi, DJ Orgasmic (Sound Pellegrino), Viní, So Shifty and many others!

JOÃO BRASIL FT. GABY AMARANTOS “GARAFA DE LICOR “

JOÃO BRASIL FT. GABY AMARANTOS "GARAFA DE LICOR "

João Brasil, our favourite Brasilian mashup-maestro and pop wizzard is back with a new single ft. Tecno Brega queen Gaby Amarantos, called “Garafa De Licor” (“Bottle Of Liquor”). We asked João what he has been up to lately.

Hi João, that new track with Gaby is big! How did you meet her?

I know Gaby for a long time, since the time I produced her version of “Águas de Março” and released it on Man Recordings. I first met her at a party in Belém where the party crew asked me if a tecnobrega singer could enjoy me at my performance, of course I said yes and that singer was Gaby, it was magical. Nowadays she is the most well known contemporary singer from Pará (her state) in Brazil.

For all our readers that don´t speak Portuguese, what is “Garrafa De Licor” about?

“Garrafa de Licor” means “Liqueur Bottle”. It’s about a sexy romantic night of a couple where the woman is in liqueur.

How is the Brega scene doing these days? Three years ago it was all the rage in Brazil, did it remain a regional phenomenon in Parrá or did cross over to a nationwide fashion?

I guess Tecno Brega is not strong around Brazil in the way it was 3 years ago, that period in time when it crossed over to a nationwide fashion and Gaby was the major figure for that. But the style still very strong at the north of Brazil.

The lyric video is also amazing, who did it and what was the idea behind it?

Hardcuore, the same crew that made my L.O.V.E. Banana video, did it this time. The idea was to make a lyric video that looks different, we made a well produced lyric video at real a drink station in Lapa, a very tradicional place in Rio where every kind of people meet, it is a cultural mashup, like the idea of the music.

Two years ago you released the really great Rio Shock project, can we expect some new tracks from it as well?

Yes. I’m glad you liked it. We are planning to do a new album next year.

Man 090 VINÍ “CORINGA REMIX” EP

Man 090 VINÍ "CORINGA REMIX" EP

Viní´s debut “Coringa” EP on Man Recordings, which was released in last July, propelled the 22-year old producer from São Paulo to international attention. He is now considered one of the big new talents of the new wave of baile funk where São Paulo has become the new innovation-hub, in which baile funk´s trademark rhtyhm is combined with bass music styles from across the world. In the meantime, Viní had a slot on Branko´s recent São Paulo Boiler Room session and a release in the prestigious Upper Cuts series on Enchufada followed.

And now there´s the “Coringa Remix” EP which connects with Vinís kaleidoscopic approach to low end sounds. The opening remix of Viní´s “Vai” comes from Kking Kong of Lisbon, who shaped the the original track to a twerked dembow banger. Teenage producer Sydney from Rio De Janeiro, an artist from Omulu´s Arrastão label, goes back to baile funk´s legendary Tamborzão rhythm in his version of “Bandida Arlequina”. São Paulo´s Sants, one of the megacity´s hottest names in bass – he has already released his abstract sound science on labels such as London´s Trapdoor – strips down Viní´s “Agente Do Caos” to the bare essentials. Call it minimal funk! The EP gets finally rounded up by Flying Buff´s rework of “Coringa”. Flying Buff are also from São Paulo and represent the more big staged trap sound.

With the “Coringa Remix” EP Viní once more displays the future sound of Brazilian and lusophone bass music!

DJ support by Feadz, Branko, Daniel Haaksman, Poirier, Peter Kruder, Toy Selectah and many more!
