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.
Following the current state of affairs in Colombia and Brazil, iconic Baile-funk originator, DJ CHERNOBYL and LATINO RESISTE team up to unveil a feral expansion in the baile funk universe.
We believed for the past year that being in a pandemic was not a good time to drop music that intends to please mostly party/festive/dj fueled scenes. However, the current situation in Brazil and Colombia with a right-wing police state calls for LR to join the fight with the best tool we have..
CHANGING THE SYSTEM.
that’s why we unveil this new sound:
An explosive crude and revolutionary approach to how the favela meets club minded people in order to add this to any heavy bass underground party.
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT for FREE or PAY WHAT YOU CAN OPTION.
The first track is called HARI HARI, which is a straight up banger using Neo-Baile funk tactics with a fast paced 150 tempo that calls for heavy charging
Track number two HORNZAUM uses the very common favela bass HORNS with this epic riddim that builds up to an even better polyrhythm base that makes it impossible not to jump or headbang.
On third base, we go even darker, completely mental
AS MINA ASSIM.. imagine a pure BERLIN TECHNO inside a Rio de Janeiro favela warehouse.
Last but not least, DJ CHERNOBYL, add his massive support to the resilience with COLOMBIA.
