Last month @ Rebel Up! we had an amazing night in Amsterdam with a superb set by Chico Correa and his Pocket Band. In fact, this Pocket Band is just one man, Esmeraldo Marques from the Brazilian tropical coastal state of Paraiba. He brings North-Eastern Brazilian rhythms together with electronic music with tools like a Kaoss Pad and other samplers. It’s bleeping Brazilian roots sound in combination with clever electro tricks and sometimes an electric guitar too. You can see it here;
We also recorded Chico Correa’s live set on that crazy full house Amsterdam night, together with 3 other great live mixes of Process Rebel, DJ Naza and Vega Selecta, check it here;
and as a swell gift to all you GB’heads, here is a full downloadable album of his older funky project; Chico Correa & Electronic Band.
