The Braza stamp continues the mission to show show the new faces of Brazilian electronic music, this time taking the focus to Rio-São Paulo. In this third installment, a visit is made to Bahia and shows the new evolution and development of Pagode Baiano, the Afros and Afoxés blocks, of Axe Music, Samba de Roda of the Reconcavo, all influenced by Bass Culture or as co-curator, Mauro TelefunkSoul of the collective Pragatecno Crokant says – Flame of Bahia Bass.
Bahia’s electronic music scene, began to have more strength in 1999 and 2000 with the collective Soonoomoon, specialists in Trance Music and the Collective Pragatecno, facing the line of Club Music. Pretty soon after, when the drum’n’bass and break beat took care of EDM, Bass Music scene began to gain more body. One of the DJs who influenced the era with a mixture of Bahian culture with bass music was DJ Rascal who did a song with the African Parade and Mariene Castro attended the Cleveland Mc Wattkiss called “Made in Bahia”.
Now in the 21st C, the first producer to mix the Bahian Pagode with bass culture was the Sound Peba. Then one of the first guys that did “Bahia Bass” were the duo A.MA.SSA who released several songs and created some media attention.
The Bahian Pagoda’s reference is ghetto music, as it appears in the outskirts of Salvador as well as in Arrocha and also other popular rhythms. This EP brings together elements of electronic music and bass lines and fuses them to the essence of Bahian culture.
