about this mix,  from SOUNDSGOOD:

The music style Tecno Brega from Brazil’s north was brought to a wider and international audience through the documentary God Copy Bad Copy for it’s Open Music Business Model. Inspired by this movie and posts on Wayne and Wax and Overmundo about the sub-genre Eletro Melody I was looking for Tecno Brega/Eletro Melody CDs on a local market in Manaus during a recent trip, even if the sound is originally from Belém, the capital of Pará state. I found as well a bunch of MP3s on the internet and decided to make a short mixtape. Most of the stuff I found is pretty cheesy Pop (”Brega”) for my taste, but I think some tracks are interesting, especially the more Reggaeton oriented ones.
