Bahia Bass vol.2



This year was very special for me, because I can handle with the new trend of funk carioca – rasterinha – and co-work with my new label talking about brazilian eletroinic music, the Braza Music.

The main point of this is: show the diversity of eletronic music and regional music there is in Brazil. Like, I live here and I know the same as you, foregin reader, about brazilian music. So I decided to open a place to talk about it and show it, and Bahia Bass is the main movement we want to talk.


Last year when I was talking with my friend a great dj Mauro Telefunksoul, he came with the idea to show the new producers of Bahia, which was actually producing eletronic music from Bahia culture. Mixed with the bass culture, of course. And BAM! Bahia Bass was borned. The volume 1 was amazing and I was to excited in created volume 2, because is easy you pick few tracks and: “hey guys, there is a movement here”. But in Bahia – as you can see in this mixtape – there is much more then few tracks, there is a whole moviment just waiting to be introduced to world. And I guess we’re doing it.

In this second volume, more styles of bahia bass come, as the track Nova $$a – SSA is the acronym of aeroport of Bahia, Salvador, and you can read as the tittle of music as New Salvador. Vandal and Half part of A.MA.SSA, Rafa Dias, create a amazing track talking about the bahia lifestyle. Plus, there is a amazing bass line and crazy drops, all of it in beats of pagode baiano, a ghetto style fromBbahia. Impossible be better than this.

Another amazing track is from Mauro Telefunksoul, the guy which started with idea of movement and the main name of it. Mauro is creating a sequence of tributes to all of “Blocos de rua” from Bahia. If you know a little of Bahia culture, you know in carnaval people staying dancing and singing behind big cars of sound. Like, this cars are the ‘sound system’ culture of Bahia, but with wheels. And, as other cultures, there is the main “blocos” that created the bahia culture and Mauro will show one by one. As he did in vol.1 with Ilê Aiyê, now he presents Olodum – one of biggest and best know percusion blocos from Bahia.

Salvador is a amazing city. I’d the opportunitty to travel there for twice, once was in Carnaval. And for my surprise, any people who live there enjoy carnaval. It’s to mass and there is a lot of tourist in city, with the only wish to enjoy the maximum of the moment, kiss girls and live that moment – missing the essential of the bahia culture. So I understand that: what I know about Bahia, isn’t the Bahia. F*ck.

It’s a kind frusted to know that but Bahia is wonderful! And now producers are showing it to for us. Catuaba Style is one of my favorite tracks. Another point for be my favorite is the name Catuaba style – Catuaba is a popular drink here, and there rumors it is aphrodisiac. Maybe now, the music should be more interesting.

Another great track is “Vai passar mal” from band Os Nelsons. Dude, this music sound very next from a Zouk Bass and Mauro who tell me: “this will be a track from ep Zouk Bass Baiano” and F*ck. As the same time is sound as Bahia beat this sound as zouk bass. Tambour are a great kind of beat.

To finish this post, but you need to listen this EP here and download it for free here, I will write about Sapohha.

I listen this track at first in Mauro’s mixtape and I enjoyed alot the feeling of it and and heavy style. But, the more important point of Sapohha is the eletric guitar solo. If you listen few tracks of Pagode Baiano (listen this) you will see the similiarty and the essence of pagode baiano. I think this is the main point when you promote a ghetto culture with eletronic influence, and Dj Werson made it!

João Brasil with hot rasterinha remix!


F*ck, i hate do a post with just one track, but man, this remix is banger! João Brasil, used to do mashups ins 2011 and with greates project of 365, is now using your habilities to produce and remix, until over paste tracks. In this new remix, he get a brazilian pagode singer (very popular) and created a rasterinha remix!

MAN! Rasterinha has influence from samba and axé, so it’s amazing this remix! Sound as natural, the singer is in the flow of beat and the bpm. I listened it 5 times until stop to post it here!! BUT, there is a problem: there isn’t link for download. Damn….

Daniel Haaksman Presents Tecno Brega : Album of the Year!

As you know from my Cremoso mixtapes, I am an absolute sucker for TecnoBrega and we’ve been covering it ever since this blog began in 2009!

I gotta say I was surprised when Daniel Haaksman informed me about this compilation because I had no idea he shared a massive love for it, like we do!!! As far as I am aware, he never articulated it publicly at least, albeit, he has had a Cremoso remix on one of Joao Brasil’s releases in the past.

I am so glad that he decided to put this together as his knowledge of Brazilian music is rich given his Baile Funk background and his contacts in Brazil are influential too. Indeed, for me it was really Haaksman’s Baile Funk output on his Man Recordings label way back that got me into much of the Transnational Bass scene as we now call it. So he has been an original in this scene for quite some time.

This new compilation just blew me away, it is my album of this year by a long shot. It could not have been better timed either because 2012 has been the year of CHEESE!

From the emergence of Trap, which caused mass bandwagon jumping with loads of people losing their integrity, to the rise of so called “EDM” in America, which practically ethnically cleansed the rich UK, European and USA history of Electronic Dance Music.

2012 has been the year of CHEESE!

Ironically, both “EDM” and Trap have ended up being far more cheesier than the material on this compilation which sets out to be deliberately cheesy. In other words both have out-cheesed TecnoBrega but not in a good or great way.

TecnoBrega is cheese but it’s cheese that brings a smile to your face, that makes you want to flip out and go a bit nutz, it’s just deliciously camp but in such a good, good way! This compilation by Haaksman makes a point and that is great music, even with a deliberate cheese agenda, still sounds far more classier and underground than other stuff that tries to pretend to be classy or underground!

Each track is a gem and will bring a smile to your face and make you wish that there were regular TecnoBrega parties in the UK and Europe!

So many great things are on this compilation that it’s hard to single out any for individual praise, it’s just such a great collection and fantastic introduction to the greatness of TecnoBrega and Haaksman has done an incredible job in putting it all together!

You really need this in your life!

Check out the mini-mix to get a flava of the compilation:


1. João Brasil feat. Marina Gasolina “Funk Do Iphone”
2. Banda Uó “Faz Uó”
3. Major Lazer feat. Amber Coffmann “Get Free” (Bonde Do Rôle Remix) (G/A/S only)
4. DJ Waldo Squash “Melo Do Dedo”
5. Gang Do Eletro “Pith Bull”
6. Charque “Money” (Edu K Remix)
7. João Brasil “Metal Brega”
8. Daniel Haaksman “Kid Conga” (João Brasil Remix)
9. Gang Do Eletro “Diabinhos Digitais”
10. DJ Waldo Squash “Bass Melody”
11. Crookers “Soca Ali Baba” (João Brasil Remix)
12. Felipe Cordeiro “Fim De Festa”
13. Banda Uó “Chorei”
14. Daniel Haaksman “Berlin Brega”
15. João Brasil “Aguas” feat. Gaby Amarantos



Tecno Brega is Portuguese for “cheesy techno” and it’s the sound of the Amazon finally getting its hands on cheap technology. Cheesy by name and cheesy by nature this is the sound of a simple preset drum pattern and mid to high range synth lines being pushed to the max.

Brega can be seen as a further example of the musical possibilities emerging from the world’s developing areas, yet another third world peripheral music that is based on a rigid but at the same time ever-evolving structure. This is no underground phenomenon, it is popular music, reviled by the urbane sophisticates but designed to appeal to and move the maximum number of Saturday-night revellers.

“Daniel Haaksman Presents Tecno Brega” gives a thorough overview of what is happening to Tecno Brega at the moment, in Pará, Brazil and the rest of the world by including a range of the most cutting edge producers and artists working within this genre. The compilation kicks off with three heavyweight names together, Man’s own genius of mash-up João Brasil teaming up with ex-Bonde de Rolê Marina Gasolina and remixed by DJ Cremoso, a recent new kid on the block whose remixes have been shaking up the genre with his indie crossovers. Banda Uó have two tracks on the compilation, their namesake track showing off their signature style, while “Chorei” seems to be their attempt to get a song played on the Novella (soap opera) at nine o’clock, a sure-fire way to have a hit in Brazil. This strategy seems to have worked for Gaby Amarantos, now a household name in Brazil, who turns up here for the tasteful “Aguas de Março”, again with Man’s own Joao Brasil.

Banda Uó’s producer, DJ Gorky, this time working with Bonde de Rolê, turns out the joyous and uplifting remix of Major Lazer’s “Get Free”, Gorky again showing why he is the man most likely to move Brazil’s music scene forward with a stunning remix of an already great track.

No Brega compilation would be complete without contributions from Pará’s own DJ Waldo Squash, here weighing in with two contributions as well as his work with Gang do Eletro. Squash’s signature sound of wailing synths and juddering stop/starts are an important contribution to the development of Brega, and key track “Bass Melody” is a lesson in short sharp minimalism. Elsewhere on the compilation you can find him inventively adapting anything from Kraftwerk to “Popcorn”.

The João Brasil remix of Daniel Haaksman’s own “Kid Conga”is the track that introduced Brega to Europe and deserves inclusion for it’s pioneering spirit and for demonstrating the blueprint synth sounds and drum pattern. Elsewhere Edu K’s remix of charque’s version of “Money” is channelling Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Belgium techno, Pink Floyd have never sounded so good (and let’s face it, energetic), there’s life in the old dogs yet! Part of the new generation coming out of Belém, Felipe Cordeiro offers up the kitsch but charming “Fim de Festa” a track that nicely encapsulates that melancholy feeling at the end of the party, where the punters are leaving and there’s a few stragglers on the dancefloor, a great example of the traditional meeting the new.The disc finishes with compiler Haaksman’s own take on Brega with the aptly named “Berlin Brega”, for where else would a strangely kitsch sound from the most northern region of Brazil be adopted and accepted with such loving care.

Daniel Haaksman is a Berlin based producer, DJ and journalist. He is head-honcho at Man Recordings and is responsible for all the releases and productions that come out of Man HQ as well as his own releases and remixes. Last year’s “Rambazamba” by Haaksman spawned many cult dancefloor hits and exciting remixes by the likes of Chrissy Murderbot. Man’s catalogue is responsible for the introduction of Brazilian Baile funk into Europe is THE label for Tropical Bass currently coming out of the worldwide periferias. For other labels he has put together such genre-defining compilations as “Rio Baile Funk – Favela Booty Beats” (Essay 2004), “More favela Booty Beats” and “Dub Infusions 1989-1999”and “More Dub Infusions” for the Sonar Kollektiv.

P.S. Today man Recordings have the big, first Brega night outside of Brasil ever as above, if you’re in the area, you’d be a fool to miss it.


Wow, wow, wow, wow!!!

Madonna has RIPPED OFF our Brazilian homie Joao Brasil’s Love Banana track on the Man Recordings label.

Check this out:

I just hope Daniel Haaksman, head honcho of the Man Recordings label tries to do something about this, maybe with a possible lawsuit against her. I’m not sure about the legal mechanics of that kinda thing apart from it’s a big risk and will cost $$$.

Hopefully, he’ll succeed and as MIA said “the little guys get to f**k shit up” 🙂

I hope to see Mr Haaksman & Joao driving around in their new Rolls Royces’ this time next year ahahahaha from the winnings of a lawsuit!

All the best guys, I hope you take some action cause you deserve some $$$ from a cut of her royalties from that single.


Maybe I said all of the above in haste and they should try to talk to her management first to see if a collab is on the cards as suggested by someone in the Moombah Forum!!   It’s doubtful her management would talk back but it’s worth a try.

4/21/11 – Tropical Bomb by João Brasil is released free on Mann Recording. This successful mash-up of the classic lambada tune makes me all warm and happy inside! I asked MANN about the history of this track and this what they had to say:

joão wrote “tropical bomb” last winter when preparing tracks for his debut ep on man recordings. then j-lo came out with “on the floor” and we decided to not release “tropical bomb”, as she kind of stole the show using the “lambada” melody. when writing about the “lambada” story ( we decided to give away “tropical bomb” as free track to promote the ep.

Thanks J-lo, because of your crap we got this awesome release free!!! Get shakin’

To top off the Lambada week at Man Recordings with appropriate grandezza, we give away for free the amazing João Brasil track “Tropical Bomb”. Yes, it also features the Lambada melody, but João fuses it with the classic “Volt Mix” beat giving it a slick 1980s baile funk twist. (found here)

Being a DJ must be fun, normally I do not spin, but when I do, I love to play some mashups.  I find them amazin, and sometimes they even sound better than the original versions..

The sound of BOOTIE, the world’s biggest mashup bootleg party, with regular parties in several cities on four continents. drops the “Best of Bootie 2010” mix is pretty much the soundtrack to Bootie, (mixtape and/or individual tracks) — from the early-in-the night ramp-up to the prime-time dancefloor bangers to the last-call drunken kookiness to the end-of-the-night sentimental slow jams, this is what a real mashup party sounds like.

And being a super fan of many of the best mashupers in the whole planet, i was so happy to see the BEST OF BRAZILIAN MASHUPS!! Including Joao brasil, Andre paste, lucio k, brutal redneck, Faroff, and many more!!

“The first Bootie Rio was historic for person who loves mashups. Exciting. We have distributed CDs Bootie Brazil, Bootie’s stickers, ecobag Bootie Rio by fashion brand Espaço Fashion, eye patches, hook gloves, hats, scarves and pirate rings that glowed in the dark. Thanks each of the 444 people who were in Fosfobox, last Friday, and caused the Rio Bootie is so exciting. We are very happy, having a party based on our passion for music and mashups. A song is never enough! Who came doesn’t wants to leave!

The boy Billy, the Kid, was the great revelation of the night, and his set was highly praised in Twitter. What about the killers of the sets of our resident Lucio K and the prodigy Andre Paste? And the presentation of uprooting Aplus D, with Adrian five songs and making people at his performance?

I loved when people sang Baba, Baby, Kelly Key, in mashup of Gorky, played by Lucio at his set. the set of Lucio. And the pirate Piratão (how we call the funk cds) of Bootie Rio? In the next party, we will let him upstairs, at first, for people taking pictures together! Then he goes down, kicks, to the main runway. I confess that I found strange and bumping into him on Saturday, in the living room of my house.

A Plus D, Lucio K, André Paste, Billy, the Kid, and Fernando Schlaepfer, you saved my life yesterday. Long ago I enjoyed myself so much. Here in the post, some photos of Fernando Schlaepfer, I hate the flash, there’s more after the leap into and a full album with 175 pictures, here.

More photos still to come from both I hate Flash and Party Busters sites. Ever-ever post anything about the next Bootie River, June 11. I’m thinking of a thousand surprises and about dancing mashups again all night long. The flyer is hilarious, we promise. Don’t forget to download the mixtape Best of Bootie Rio I, here. And kisses. Crazy to mashup me with you in the next Bootie Rio. One lover of mashups is never enough!
