  • Sabor Sonidero Mixtape

    Cumbia Sonidera in Mexico City is a kind of what Cumbia Villera is in Buenos Aires: originated from Colombian Cumbia it has been transformed in the marginalized settlements. Its sound is characterized by slow beats, long instrumental parts and voices often deformed by effects giving it sometimes even a dub feeling. In huge venues, the DJs (sonideros) play it in their sets together with other music styles as well as a lot of jingles and shouts greeting the community and announcing other parties etc.

    Tracklist:

    01. Grupo Maravilla De Robin Revilla – Viva Mexico
    02. Grupo La Cumbia – Yambao
    03. Robotica
    04. Estrellas De La Kumbia – Cumbia Aventura

  • Copacabana Road Mixtape

    August 17 of 1960 is often referred to as the birthday of The Beatles because they played their first show in Hamburg where their career kicked off. As everywhere in the world, the Fab Four were big in Brazil and a lot of bands appeared that simply covered their songs and that of other groups of that time. They often translated the lyrics into portuguese and the most curious are maybe The Brazilian Beatles, see video below. To celebrate the 50th anniversary I selected and mixed some rather reinterpretations than mere cover versions by Brazilian artists.

    Tracklist:

    01. Bem Bolado – With A Little Help From My Friends
    02. Os Sambeatles – All My Loving
    03. Zumba Cinco – A Hard Day’s Night
    04. Manfredo Fest – Something
    05. Bossa Rio – Eleanor Rigby
    06. Vox Populi – Here, There And Everywhere
    07. Wilson Das Neves – Come Together
    08. Formiga E Sua Orchestra – Hey Jude
    09. Rogério Duprat & Os Mutantes – Lady Madonna
    10. Rita Lee – And I Love Him
    11. Elis Regina – Golden Slumbers
    12. Milton Nascimento – Norwegian Wood

    Don’t miss to check João Brasil’s great Funk Carioca Mashups “Let It Baile”.

  • Funk Carioca 2009 Mixtape

    Actually not much happened in the Funk Carioca scene in 2009, already mentioned here for example. Most of the tracks use the aquecimento beat, vocals are just reduced frases and shouts and the lyrics are mostly putaria.
    But fortunately there have been some interesting tracks as well for different reasons, but especially some that are mixed with or refer to other music styles. Check the brief information that comes with the tracks.

    Tracklist:

    1. Grupo Revelação vs. Vai Novinha (Montagem)
    A remix using parts of a song of the pagode supergroup Revelação.

    2. Os Caçadores – Descendo e Mexendo Ombrinho

    3. Andrezinho Shock – Passinho do Kuduro
    The lyrics refer to the new fashion Kuduro in Brazil. But as far as I know no real musical interchange in terms of mixing the styles of Kuduro and Funk Carioca happened so far. Check this post here for a discussion on what is a passinho.

    4. Bonde Do Super Homem (Montagem)
    Making montagens (remixes/mashups) with the soundtrak of blockbuster movies is almost a tradition in Funk Carioca, like Indiana Jones or Star Wars.

    5. Dennis DJ & MC Maiquinho – Prende Na Rave
    A try of a Funk Carioca techno rave track… MC Maiquinho has been the shooting star in 2009.

    6. MC Buiú – Balança mas não para
    Uses drum samples of the famous Samba-Reggae band Olodum. The track has been recently treated by João Brasil in his crazy project of 365 mashups in 2010. The track is a little bit older…

    7. Salgueiro Campeão 2009 (Montagem)
    A montagem of the most popular Funk track of 2009 (Salgueiro é o caldeirão) with the song of the winning samba school of the carnival 2009 .

    8. Movimento Funk – Movimento Pela Paz
    Various MCs teamed up for a track asking for less violence in police operations in favelas. This track is from 2008 as far as I know.

    9. Cidinho – Dinheiro é foda
    One of my favourite MCs rapping about the good and bad sides of money. Funk Consciente (“Conscious Funk”, with socially critical lyrics) is unfortunately totally out of fashion, this is one of the few tracks of this kind of 2009.

    10. Taty & As Gulosas – Não solta não

    ________________________________________________________________

    But most probably the craziest Funk Carioca track of 2009 features Brazil’s president Lula. After he used the Brazilian word for sh** in an official speech that frase was immediately used for a remix.

    Thanks to Robin from Filet Mignon for the grafics. The foto (© by SoundGoods) is taken in the favela Perreirão where years ago kids started to construct favelas with bricks as a playground. The thing became famous with the kids travelling to Europe to present their work and a NGO was founded as a social and cultural movement.


  • Tribalismo Tropical Mixtape

    This quite new sound from Mexico has been referred to as “Tribal Guarachero” on Dutty Artz and other sites, but when I asked around the CD sellers in D.F./Mexico I just saw question marks in their faces. They just called it Tribal. But maybe the problem was my Spanish… Anyway, Paul Devro who posted a great Mix of the stuff on Mad Decent isn’t sure either how to call it. For me it’s Technocumbia or Tribalcumbia!

    Tracklist:

    01. Danza Azteca
    02. La Culebrita
    03. DJ Retro – Babaninko
    04. Chango
    05. El Ballo
    06. DJ Retro – Guarachosa
    07. El Ritmo De La Petaka Tribal
    08. DJ Gato – Topota Madre
    09. Danza
    10. Damas Gratis – Se Te Ve La Tanga
    11. A Ritmo De Los Manos
    12. Cumbia Tribal
    13. Vamos A Bailar
    14. Vive La Fiesta
    15. Prehispanik
    16. DJ Sobrino – Automation
    17. Oaxaqueño

  • La Villa Cumbiera Mixtape

    Cumbia Villera (from the villas, as low income settlements in Buenos Aires are called) is the Argentinean “ghetto” version of Cumbia, originated from Colombian Cumbia and was brought to Argentina by immigrants. In the late 90’s it got more and more played with and transformed by electronic music equipment. The vocalists started as well to sing lyrics about about sex, drugs and crime. The result is a stumbling and laid-back beat with straight bassdrum and crazy, twisted and bended keyboard lines.

    There is very good information on Cumbia Villera on the internet:
