just in time for summer, rnt drops a 3-tracker of tropical heat from brazilian outfit balako. although relative newcomers, their production prowess has been known to their rio de janeiro musical community and beyond for some time, and is on full display here. the a-side showcases their knack for modernizing the canonical brazilian mpb sound, from the deceptively demonic build of batuque, to the acidic-leaning lilt of deixa acontecer. the flip side takes a hard turn left of field with honey honey honey, a 9 minute opus of afro-brazilian disco insanity, primed for those balmy summertime roof parties.
more brazilian inspired, feel good vibes from the barefoot beats crew. first up is berlin based dance machine eddie c who digs deep and drops a swinging bahian tinged groove, which is guaranteed to get you dancing on the tables! while over on the flip, rio based producers balako capture the vibe of those hedonistic carnival nights in their city when the night air is bursting and burning with excitement and anticipation. log off whatever you were doing and go barefoot instead!
