  • Sacassaia

    Sacassaia from Brasília produce a very interesting mixture of Brazilian styles and other Latin-American rhythms together with Rap and Dub.

    From their website:
    “In the first semester of 2008 the DJ/MC/composer Gardenel (Gabriel Gardenal) and the musician/DJ/composer/audio engineer Tony Roballo (Tomás Seferin) got together to create a new musical project. Within a year’s work, and with the participation of some of the most talented musicians born or based in Brasilia, among them Renato Matos, Indiana Nomma, Massala Pacome, Luiz Olivieri, Raggademente and Moisés Alves, twelve tracks were recorded, setup, mixed and masterized. After many debates, ballots, numerological and kabbalistic calculations, the group has got its name – Sacassaia. This name, taken from Mário de Andrade’s literary work Macunaíma, is the name of a very aggressive species of army ant: “A tristura talqualmente correição de sacassaia viera na taba and devorara até o silêncio. – Sadness, likewisely a sacassaia raid, came and devoured even silence itself.” The album was recorded at Estúdio 104 (Brasilia, Brazil) and the tracks mixed at Estúdio 104 and Uns aos Outros (Brasilia, Brazil) and Farmfresh Áudio (Barcelona, Spain). Masterized by Michael Fossenkemper, at Turtletone Studio, (New York, USA).”

  • 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.
