Mr Phipson is back in 2007 and keeps it up with the incredible podcast series. This time I digged in all digital crates and created a massive »MixTape«, well mixtape is not really a correct expression cause it ain't a tape but an podcast episode. Enjoy 60 minutes of urban, ghetto sounds from the favelas and shantytowns of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Angola. I selected two genres of urban pressure sounds from portuguese speakin' countries. Brazilian Baile Funk Carioca meets up with Kuduro from Angola and Lisbon, Portugal. For me both styles are very similiar with attitude and technique, though the sound is way different. Funk Carioca with its typical »tamborzao« (heavy drum sounds) and broken beats fits perfectly in a mix with 4-to-the-floor Kuduro beats. Both styles are produced very often by DJs in bedroom studios (like my podcast radio show ;-)
Kuduro is a kind of mixture between House, Hip Hop and Ragga elemtens, the beats are in a similiar pattern like Reggaeton beats of Panama/Puerto Rico but are much faster and mostly 'round 140 BPM, while Funk Carioca or Baile Funk is around the 130s BPM a little side information for the techy geeks among open minded music friends.
Special thanks to Favela Funk MCs for the Baile Funk sounds from Berlin.
