Funk fanatics,

Check out Samurai FM for Daniel Haaksman’s brand spanking new baile funk mix (including rare tracks).

This one's to celebrate the release of his second compilation on Essay Recordings: 'Baile Funk – More Favela Booty Beats' (check previous posting here for more info). His mix includes rare tracks that Essay were unable to clear for the new album (due to samples and politricks). For those of ya'll who dun know, Daniel Haaksman is said to be the first European to have ventured in to Rio’s baile funk movement. His now legendary 'Baile Funk – Favela Booty Beats' (released two years ago) exposed the genre for the very first time to Western ears.

Braaaaaap! x

RIO ROX party number 3!

It's official! The next RIO ROX party is on its way back! Get ready to shake your booties, drink your caipirinhas and burst your eardrums... RIO ROX returns on Wednesday 18th October at Proud in Camden in conjunction with Pure Spirit of Brazil. And wait for the best bit... It's FREE!

DJ Sandrinho is flying in from Brazil's real favela bailes (ghetto raves) once again (who was at the first one? he smacked it!) to mash up the speakers with his authentic funk carioca AKA baile funk. The full line-up is still TBC but expect a mix-up of flavours this time around- from baile funk to Latino house to crunk to broken beat to samba!

FLYER SOON COME... save that date for your oh-so hectic diaries! ;o)
