Resenha da coletânea “Made in Brasil que escrevi para revista XLR8R.

The recent baile funk fever might lead to the conclusion that that’s all Brazilian music has to offer. Nothing could be further from the truth, and that‘s what WordSound’s head scout Skiz Fernando found out when he spent a couple of months in Rio. Remember that this is Brasil with an “s,” and all types of the country’s music are pushed forward. The swinging acoustic guitar on BNegão’s “No Hay,” Dom Negrone’s mix of hip-hop and samba (“O Povo Que Vibra”), Mamelo Sound System riding the Stalag riddim on the dub-hop “Liri Sista,” and Digitaldubs’ mixture of dancehall and Afro drums on “Arrego” all add up to future visits to the favela from Diplo and friends.

Wordsound apresenta Made in Brasil
words: Bruno Natal

The result of a two-month research trip to Rio de Janeiro, made by Wordsound’s front man, Skiz Fernando, this compilation gives you a honest glimpse at Brazil’s underground scene. Beyond baile funk music, it shows other genres being produced in the country, from hip hop to reggae and ambient rock, all tied together by street talents that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else, like a preview of what is yet to come.

Maquinado – “Sutura”
BNegão – “Seletores de frequência”
