| Favela Funk (BR)
| In Brazil's shantytowns (favelas) exists an incredible ghetto movement, known as Baile Funk.
Heavy bass sounds, heavy 80's sampling, rhymes that are not sung but screamed, explicit lyrics and bubblegum electronic music tranformed this into the next big thing.
It is known for gathering something like 1.5 million people every weekend, on its more than 300 parties, on the hills of Sao Paulo. Even though it has been prohibited by the police, hardly anything can be done to move any of those spending their time swinging to the sounds of funk.
One of its most known DJs is Luis Mattos da Matta, A.K.A. DJ Marlboro, having already played worlwide his funky mad vibes.
Meanwhile, On the speakers.... Favela on Blast by Diplo.
To known more about this, specially the music, check the site Funky do Morro.
I strongly recommend the tracks out Funk Neurotico
Download here the compilation "As melhores do la"
