Some classic 80’s old skool B-Boy Electro re-dubbed by Bristolian New skool Dirtybird signing Will Clarke. If you followed my SpaceDelica mixtape series, Hashim is def a name you should recall from that series.
Since baile funk became a popular electronic music from Brazil, more sounds from brazilians start to show up. In the majority, ghetto styles as baile funk, tecnobrega, pagode baiano, carimbó and other variations, but, there are great producers in all Brazil making good music, and Orange Boy – from Goiás ,middle-west state of Brazil – is here to show it.
In this debut EP with 4 tracks – released by label Braza – the producer present his ability showing what he know to do. This isn’t a EP about a single genre. It is a mix: twerk, moombahton, electro, techno and other influences in four different tracks.
“Orange Boy” is producer and DJ, and he is showing his ability on pocket show at mixcloud. Grab for free this EP, follow him and his activities, it worth for sure.
Every so often I love to throw in a curveball blog post and this is one of those. I couldn’t help myself though as Semma’s voice is something special to behold and had me totally captivated. Semma’s 80’s Electro R&B fused with UK Funky House sensibilities and that friggin’ awesome vocal just blew me away and a huge plus is that it’s been produced and released by Star Slinger on his Jet Jam label based in London.
One of the dudes commenting on her tracks summed it beautifully, “Perfect Future Pop Song(s)”!!!
Just listen to the way that vox kicks in at around 2:40 on the lead track and you just know that this lady is gonna be HUGE!
When it comes to Balkan-electro music – France is a new SuperBalkanPower! As an example, check out this new technoish-Balkan EP from Boris Viande, simply called NIGHT. Simple, minimalistic, yet Balkan; it`s a without any doubt fresh approach to the music of my peninsula. Actually, the EP cover says a lot (this time). Well, enjoy!
Chaos, mess, Noise, Shooting, this is the model that Sugar Crush have to mess with the “World Order”. Debuting their first album, the duo of producers put all your influences in 8 tracks and explains that “this story of a single musical genre” has passed. Rodrigo and Samuel, reflected in songs how is your creative process with a lot of mess, picking up a little of each genre and increasing the bass line. Not only bass is present on all 8 track, as the funk carioca is present in every song too – reaffirming the style as Brazilian electronic music. In eight tracks, the duo deconstructs several styles, travel in the Trap and Electro, drop fast beats, puts more weight to the drops, brings global sample and to finish the chaos closes with track “Under Wolrd” the calm before the confusion.
The duo is getting attention in Brazil, with schedule of show and releasing tracks (the last one was with Main Course). They are working with new names from brazilian bass culture as Flying Buff and AquaBazz (we spoke about this duo last week). This is the third release, but they also have “Favela +55” – showing their hability on twerk – and”From Neighborhood“. This last release is with their crew “Dirty Kidz Gang“, this project is to start promote the producers from a party crew, and Sugar Crush is one of them.
Well, I asked few questions to Sugar Crush to understand about this album, while you listening the album and read the questions you can download all material 4free here:
– How did the idea of the EP?
We are two producers very active and like other producers, we have a lot of songs and some end up getting saved – most are not even finished, but this time had a major focus. We were a few months without releasing singles (most of our releases were bimonthly and sometimes even monthly) and we decided to release our first album to show our evolution and our endless musical references. – Why “New Word (Dis)Order“?
We baptize the EP “New World Disorder” because we do not like tag or genres. And it can be noticed from our first performances even in our musical references. In our show we play it all: Trap, Moombah, EDM, Hip Hop, and so on … Some N.W.D. songs are impossible to tag in one specific genre, because we mix a little of everything, we can say that in a track you will hear 3 “styles ” different as: Trap music, Baile Funk, EDM … Our creative process is fun and unpredictable, and the result you can see in our songs. – Who is the Sugar Crush?
We are a duo of big fat friends who love each other and are always eating pizza; who are almost always running not to miss the flight; who collect a wide collection of stories to tell to children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A double that during the presentations are Aggressive and Funny; a double running from the ghetto to the luxury and luxury in the ghetto; a couple who likes commercial sound but also loves non-commercial sound. In short: The Sugar Crush is a project without labels or a genre that has BASS is the rule number one.
In order: Samuel Prado and Rodrigo Barbosa, aka Sugar Crush
We love to support the unique talent that is Celt Islam. Here he is for the second time today and with his new EP he momentarily veers away from the Sufi Dub to play around with 80’s B-Boy Electro and he injects some dub into that too. Check it, really good stuff.
An exclusive collection of unreleased tracks going back over a decade with an Electro B Boy Dub driven world dub twist by Celt Islam.

Tasty Electro from the head honcho of one of my favourite re-issue labels of recent years, Dark Entries!
Here’s what’s said:
We are extremely honored and happy to present to you this exclusive mix by Josh Cheon. Josh resides in San Francisco and is part of the 4-piece DJ collective known as HONEY Soundsystem. Apart from that, he is also the owner of the very notorious record label called Dark Entries recordings. Over the last five years, Dark Entries has been responsible for some of the most in-demand re-issues hitting the market, re-releasing works from bands and artists like Borghesia, The Neon Judgement, Eleven Pond and the great Patrick Cowley.
In this mix he serves us 100 minutes of brutal electro business, focussing mostly on the sounds that were coming from the EBM/Industrial/New Beat scene during the 80’s. It fits really tight with the Dark Entries catalog so far and is a great example of it’s aesthetic.
Dark Entries has just released three amazing albums by Portion Control, Moral and Lena Platonos and is about to release two albums by Joe Crow and Thomas Leer later this month. Definetly worth checking those out. We advise you to keep following the links below so you can keep track on any news regarding future Dark Entries releases, HONEY Soundsystem events and Josh Cheon himself. Enjoy.
