We are happy to introduce you to a one hour mix of Brasilian Favela Funk Music.
Craig Ouar, french DJ based in Brasil put together an eclectic selection of the styles you would get to hear at the parties called “Baile Funk”. From the late 80’s « Volt Mix », to the « charm » style, the classic « funk paredao » or the « corredor » (corridor). That style was all about the DJ re-enacting Moses’ partition of the Red Sea : dividing the crowd in two and leaving both sides called A and B fight or dance together …
The genre was super inspired by the american Freestyle and Miami bass era, tons of similar samples were used, and played live on MPC by the Brasilian MC’s.
The vast majority of the records you find in Brazil were pressed as live recording and mastering was very optional…
Let’s dive into one hour of ruff classics and deep Braz’Funks records!
