MAGIC DRUM ORCHESTRA "CRUNKED UP"

Magic Drum Orchestra fuses a passion for Brazilian music, heavy drums and percussion with a love of modern dance beats. Their sound has influences from dubstep, drum & bass and hip hop fused with batucada, samba and afrobeat. With over 100 drummers and percussionists making their way through the studio to record these tracks, high quality, cutting edge production is a big part of the MDO sound, alongside the real human element that only live percussion and drums can bring – there is a truly free spirit feel to this music.

LUSO FM #100 ON FUNKHAUS EUROPA

Daniel Haaksman just celebrated the one hundredth volume of his weekly radio show Luso FM on German public radio station Funkhaus Europa. In little more than two years, despite being presented in German language, Luso FM has become a global reference to new sounds and artists from countries such as Angola, Brasil, Portugal, Moçambique and Capo Verde.

In Luso FM #100, Daniel presents the most played songs and talks about guest mixes and the rising wave of cutting edge sounds and grooves from the Portuguese speaking world which developed largely unnoticed outside the Anglo-Saxon dominated, online media world we live in. Over it´s one hundred show stretch, Luso FM presented genres like Kuduro, Baile Funk, Tecno Brega, Funana, Kizomba, Ku House, Favela Trap or Pandza and displayed the music´s countless trans-atlantic relationships and diasporic roots. One hundred volumes of Luso FM have shown that music from the lusosphere (“Luso” meaning “Portuguese speaking” (anaolgous to Francophone for French speaking)) has become an important force in global dance music to reckon with. If you missed out any past shows, check out Daniel´s Luso FM playlist on Soundcloud which contains 97 of the 100 last presentations. Man Rec says Big Up!

"WE DON´T LIKE SAMBA" TRAILER

With only four more weeks to go until the start of the world cup in Brazil, the country´s populace is far from looking forward to the mega-event. Strikes in the public sector in Brazil have increased. Last year´s massive protests against corruption, mismanagement, excessive public spending in favour of Fifa, have spread a lot furter and increasingly confront more issues. “We Don´t Like Samba” promises a full feature documentary with a detailed look at the current social and political issues in Brazil pre-world cup 2014. P.S. At the moment we´re not so sure about the title of this documentary though – who doesn´t love samba?
