Just when you thought you had heard the last of Baile Funk, the sound of New Baile Funk emerges and morphs like all good dance music genres do. So if you didn't get a taste of this genre that Diplo helped make famous, here is your chance. If you like trap, grinding beats, Moomba, etc. you might really dig this. It's raw and it's good. Mr. Bongo always delivers top shelf stuff and it's a label you should be familiar with.
Mr Bongo are extremely proud to present ‘Funk Globo: The Sound of Neo Baile’, a compilation which features 14 unreleased and exclusive tracks from worldwide producers that reinterpret the synonymous Brazilian Baile Funk sound, out June 10th.
With support from Throwing Snow, Sinden, Mumdance, Bonde do Role and many others, the compilation shines a light on the emerging Neo Baile sound with a wide range of artists including Deize Tigrona who's previously collaborated with Diplo, MIA and Buraka Som Sistema.
Welcome to Neo Baile, an innovative take on the traditional sounds and aesthetics of Brazil’s Baile Funk (or Funk Carioca). This brilliant compilation has been put together by two of the movement’s most knowledgeable players: Sao Paulo-based Funk na Caixa aka Renato Martins and London-based Sean Casey aka Bumps, founder of Club Popozuda.
The compilation features established names such as DJ Comdrade aka Xao, Sao Paulo-based MC Gi and Rio-based Maga Bo, who has been producing Brazilian-flavoured bass music since the early 00s. Alongside these are upcoming artists Ophex from Lithuania, Ckrono & Slesh from Italy, Gato Preto from Mozambique, Chuck Upbeat from Moscow and London-based Bumps.
