  • Tecno Brega News

    It seems that Tecno Brega/Electro Melody continues on the list of the genres to keep an eye on. Blogs and magazines regularly post about it, like Man Recordings, The Wire and The Uncool Hunter, for example. João Brasil as well made a nice mixtape with tracks of one of the best Tecno Brega producers, DJ Waldo Squash. There you already listen to what is the new thing in Belém: The producers mix Tecno Brega with other Latin music styles. Check more examples here:

    Another news is that Tecno Brega is getting more popular outside of the Amazon region in Brasil. DJ Wald Squash played at the aniversary edition of Dancing Cheetah party in Rio. Banda Uó from Goiânia are not only touring Brazil, but as well have the potential to become what Bonde do Rolé was for Baile Funk: a band from out of the original context that adapts a local sound and brings it to the world. Let’s see what will happen!

  • Força Do Pará Mixtape

    The music style Tecno Brega from Brazil’s north was brought to a wider and international audience through the documentary God Copy Bad Copy for it’s Open Music Business Model. Inspired by this movie and posts on Wayne and Wax and Overmundo about the sub-genre Eletro Melody I was looking for Tecno Brega/Eletro Melody CDs on a local market in Manaus during a recent trip, even if the sound is originally from Belém, the capital of Pará state. I found as well a bunch of MP3s on the internet and decided to make a short mixtape. Most of the stuff I found is pretty cheesy Pop (“Brega”) for my taste, but I think some tracks are interesting, especially the more Reggaeton oriented ones.
