Generation Bass presents: Edu K “Do The Brega!” EP!
Those that know have been following Brazilian producer Edu K for years. From the hard stomping Funk Carioca/Baile Funk sounds of several years ago to the Global Bass he has been dropping which are marked by its top production techniques and heavy slabs of bass and rhythm, everything this guy works on is something special.
After last year’s Man Recordings release “Daniel Haaksman presents Tecnobrega” on which one of the best tracks was an Edu K remix of a Charque track, Edu K is back and has worked the typical Tecnobrega elements in his shiny, glorious and bass heavy sound. Edu K is Brazil’s new millennium answer to the post local, post genre musical era we live in. It’s a high energy mash up of kick ass music that is fresh and unique.
For global music stronghold, or rather, cool music from where-ever stronghold, Generation Bass, Edu K drops a banger of an EP. From the typical rock ‘n roll-gone-Tecnobrega shuffle of “Putaria” to the Tecnobrega meets house collab “Nao Sou Brega, Eu Sou Chique” with fellow music-monger Joao Brasil, this is an all-out assault on your feet and ankles. The contagious fun of an awesome track like “Sanfona Treme Treme” can be dropped at any barbeque or sunny outdoor party anywhere in the world and people will start dancing. The feel good vibes are galore and the sun-drenched optimism of Brazilian beach life translates to audio like no other thing you have heard the last 10 years. There’s a collab with Bondo Do Role of course (the infectious “Danca Da Bicha Manca”) and with mc’s and producers like Jaloo, Caballo and Gato Preto. The twitching and buzzing synths of “Do The Brega!” make this the soon to be war cry of the genre. Up-tempo and swinging its rump from left to right, this is Tecnobrega like there is no tomorrow.
In an Ideal world, this would be the sort of stuff that would make Billboard, banging out of every car that passes you by with their hood down. Chug that Mojito man, turn up the stereo and honk your car horn to the rhythm of Edu K!
