Yes biutiful like Iñárritu‘s movie. Biutiful like the passing metro-cars, the blue sky and fading lights of Barcelona. Biutiful in its complexity and sometimes outrageous elaboration, stumbling upon its exagerated sadness.
Amazing work from Sango, using Baile funk loops and mixing them to his airy trap style. We can easily imagine ourselves on the top a roof somewhere in the favela. The heat is sweltering, the sky has the purest blue shade, there is something angry that comes from the street mixed with a feeling of absolute liberty.
The name Da Rocinha simply means, in Brazilian Portuguese, “Of Rocinha”. Rocinha is one of the most popular favelas in Brazil, which is located in Rio De Janeiro. Rocinha pretty much birth the baile funk sound and what I want to show is how Rocinha influenced me.” -Sango

… is a duo composed of West Palm Beacher and Judson Rogers . Their music can be defined as a blend of 80’s beats, a sweet mellow bassline that gives a feeling of intimacy. They worked on a remix of Sun Glitters, “They Don’t Want to Let You Know (Sumsun Remix)” which is just breath-taking. Starting with chimering sounds it slowly takes a deep tropical flavour blended with something that reminds of soundtracks from great series from the 90’s.

Very young Mc from Brooklyn, known for having released a track (“Fraulein”) while he was still in highschool, he has this amazing style that you can’t ignore. His collab with Supreme Cuts is outstanding. The crackling and dusty-vinyl music is a perfect match for Haleek’s voice.
