SummaryBrazilian Bass represents some of the diverse music that Brazil has to offer. For some time now we've been really excited to present the heavy low end of places like Bahia, Pernambuco and Sao Paulo and the cultural force behind it. This is a blending of a myriad of different musical styles - Reggae, Hip-Hop, Dub, Soul, Electronica and Afrobeat, all filtered through Brazilian melodies, rhythms and instruments to create something totally unique.
Bass music is a crucial cultural force shaping not only the sounds of London, but places like Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Salvador – a few of Brazil's most dynamic music cities, Bass music has become a driving force. With influences ranging from Vybz Kartel, Marley and Devlin to Jackson do Pandeiro, Racionais MCs and Buraka Som Sistema, this CD is guaranteed to rock your system!
Far Out Presents Brazilian Bass runs the breadth of what the genre has to offer, from the soulful Dub rhythms of Anelis Assumpção, through to the Reggae/Samba grooves of Banda Escola Pública, and on to the music of Afroelectro- whose name perfectly encapsulates their style. Start with this diverse list of bands, and you're still only scratching the surface of Brazilian Bass' sound.
