Belém in North Eastern Brasil is not only home to Tecno Brega, but also to Felipe Cordeiro who just released his album “Kitsch Pop Cult” for free download, and it´s full of that “Som de Nordeste” fusing Brega with Lambada, Carimbo and various other regional sounds from the Amazon forest area.

F*CK J-LO & PITBULL! THE TRUE STORY OF LAMBADA

Bildschirmfoto 2011-04-18 um 11.22.57

J-Lo´s horrible version of “Lambada” (“On The Floor” feat. Pitbull) currently tops Germany´s pop charts and brings back the memories of 1989, when “Lambada” was #1 all across Europe. Wayne & Wax just did an amazing Lambada only mixtape called “Moments In Lambada” (following the Nguzunguzu mixtape of “Moments In Love”) which includes some of the dozens versions that were made of “Lambada” since its release.

“Les Dessous De Lambada”, a French documentary from 2001, shows the real story behind the world hit. This originally Bolivian tune, rearranged in Paris and marketed as a Brazilian song, had a skyrocketing commercial success. Launched through advertising spots for the French “Music Festival ” in June 1989 it went to conquer Europe and racked up four million sellers in just a few months. What was the origin of this musical UFO? The international version was signed by Chico de Oliveira but in reality it was a Bolivian song written by the Hermosa brothers eight years before it peaked in Europe. The film analyses the ruthless marketing strategy used by the most powerful partners of music industry, show business and French media to make and promote this hit and on the other hand, reconstruct the Lambada affair, the chronicle of this international judicial affair of the most famous plagiarism in the story of popular music.

MAN 057 JOÃO BRASIL "L.O.V.E. BANANA" FEAT. LOVEFOXXX

JB

Ok, we´ve been bigging this song up for a while now, today is the offical pre-release day of João Brasil´s anthemic “L.O.V.E. Banana” feat. Lovefoxxx.

“L.O.V.E. Banana” by Brasilian mash-up maestro João Brasil features the voice of CSS godess Lovefoxxx praising the many joys the sweet, yellow fruit can bring. With its saucy lyrics, a hard to resist hook, a „Lambada“ inspired melody and the amazing voice of Lovefoxxx, “L.O.V.E Banana” has all the ingredients of a super fun summer anthem.

On Brasilian MTV Fatboy Slim recently called João Brasil his favourite Brasilian DJ . It´s quiet likely that João , who made headlines in 2010 with his every-day-a-mashup-project “365” will be soon considered one of the big new talents of 2011. Lovefoxxx is the glamourous front woman of CSS, who are about to release their third album on Sub Pop this summer.

The EP comes with a funky Euro dance remix by Daniel Haaksman, an irresistible disco remix by Polish noveau Piano god Max Skiba, a dirty boogie version by Telonious of Gomma records fame and a Rio baile funk remix by DJ Edgar. The acappella is added for aspiring DJs to make their own versions. Bonus track is the classic „Aguas De Março“ by Tom Jobim, sung by Tecno Brega queen Gaby Amarantos from Belem, in North Brasil.

It´s safe to say that „L.O.V.E. Banana“ is the biggest pop tune that was ever released on Man Recordings. It´s hot, it´s full of fun – and it´s from Brasil! And we are convinced it´s gonna be one of the major tunes of summer 2011.

João Brasil X N.A.S.A

João Brasil X N.A.S.A
NASA

NASA

João Brasil keeps the Lambada alive with this remix he’s done for N.A.S.A’s “Whachadoin”, leaving just the vocals and chorus from the original.

NASA are DJ Zegon (José Gonzales) and Squeak E Clean, Squeak E is apparantly director Spike Jonze’s brother and Zegon is a Brazilian Hip-Hop dj who used to live in the states, worked with Money Mark amongst others and may be now living in São Paulo. He has done interesting production work for Os Racionais and Marcelo D2, the two biggest hip hop acts in Brazil and djed hip-hop extensively in Brazil but now seems to be playing gigs with artists like Mixhell and has entered mash-up culture – though his hip-hop sets always did feature a healthy selection of rap rock bootlegs.
