And even tho the genre is somewhat popular within Brazilians, it is almost unknown outside the inner circle.
Singer/songwriter Leopold Nunan releases the first single, “Quem é teu baby?/ Who is your baby?” from his debut album. “It’s a sound that represents my roots with a mix of afro, native sound with pop rock influences. It’s highly percussive and uplifting. It’s Global Music and I am ready to take on the World,” enthuses the artist about his latest work.
And we are extremely proud to be able to release the exclusive RASTEIRINHA remix made by 17 y.o. Brazilian prodigy KARAN!!!
The album, “Leo from Rio“, the name by which the Los Angeles community knows him, arrives on streaming this year filled with samba, new bossa, jazz and rock. On the album, the majority of the arrangements and instruments were created by Brazilian prodigy Alberto Menezes.
The album is a tribute to Leopold’s father, Plastic Surgeon and Professor Virmar Ribeiro Soares, who passed away seven years ago. He bequeathed Leopold a legacy of more than 300 rare records by giants of Brazilian Popular Music, Sergio Mendes, Gal Costa, Vinicius de Moraes, Azimuth, João Donato, Elza Soares, Jorge Benjor and more. Leopold found a surprise in the collection, an original album from Sonia Santos released in 1977, months after she recorded this feature in Leo’s track. Says Leo, “I cried so hard after finding this relic and called Sonia and Ana immediately.” These wonderful records, that he can’t stop playing, inspire the album’s vibe and it’s dive into Brazilian Popular Music. All from the point of view of an artist with a prior career in electronic music: “I am going back to the basics, all instruments are played by musicians. I had a chance to produce a sound that is a legit homage to my roots and ancestors.” The song will have as a bonus, several dance floor remixes by Brazilian artists like Lucio K, Karan!andDJ Marcao Rezende.
Perreo House is getting massive support in the underground, and it will be just a matter of time that we see a complete shift in the urban latino scene going full house related and 808 related perreo with all the intended sub-genres flirting with the infectious vibe.
We are very glad to bring back one of the most prominent Techno-Perreo producers in the Ecuadorian scene to the Latino Resiste fam.
Benaje, whose bass tracks we have been honored to have couple of times keeps killing it, and this time he joins Caballo to drop another vibe that is getting massive exploration in the afro-caribbean scenes, which is the Afro-Bass.
Latino Resiste is extremely happy to finally have a whole EP from one of the OG’s in the game.
Back in the day he created a new genre called Junglaton (Drum and Bass fused with Moombahton) alongside Jon Kwest. However, El Nomada kept evolving the game and actually has gone really deep into the game and making great statements in what Latin Drum & Bass is.
Born and raised in Ponce, Puerto Rico EL Nomada sound is a blend of upbeat UK Drum and Bass style percussion, with Latin Reggaeton, and deep dark eclectic Synths and Bass sounds.
At the time he was dubbed “The King of Drumstep” by UK’s Dj UMB from GenerationBass.
El Nomada is also a pioneer of the moombahton movement in Kansas City, and founder of the Kayceeton guild of Kansas City moombahton producers and overall a real OG.
His latest EP called Sabor a Machete is a brutal statement of what Latin Drum & Bass is.
After a huge wave of cumbia in the late 2000s the genre got steady and went back to their original roots in most of the countries that the genre is still alive.
Argentina, Colombia and Mexico kept evolving the genre without losing its cultural impact and it’s very much alive and well in the underground scene, although there is an obvious disconnect between the playlists on the digital streamers and what really people listen on parties, especially street based parties.
Latino Resiste’s Carnnibal who has dropped 3 dancehall albums with the label goes Mestizo with the head honcho Caballo to release BADMAN TALKIN’.
A truly mestizo sound that will remind you why Cumbia and Ragga Dancehall are cousins, and when they both are on the same page.. IT’S STRAIGHT FLAMES.
