“Reggae” music from Brazil or Brazilian music with elements of reggae or somewhere in between….. This isn’t some guys trying to sound like Jamaican reggae and singing in Portuguese. This is a deep fusion where the original rhythmic cells are always felt, maintained and respected and built upon. Where a filtered feedback from a delay hovers above the dumskadum of a pandeiro while a surdo sits in for a deep dub bass line.
The compilation features a variety of artists from across Brazil, DJ Môco feat MC Debinha (yet another fantastic incarnation of DJ Dolores), the super fast and hard embolada ragga rapper from Triunfo in the interior of Pernambuco, Jéssica Caitano, to Neguedmundo, a repeat Kafundó contributor from Natal, now living in São Paulo. Future retro recife brega funk to bass music remixes to dub reggae and northeastern Brazilian traditional rhythms.
