From Disco Punk to Baile Funk


Télépathique is a band that blends electronic music with rock and punk-rock, and it innovates by bringing, to that universe, brazilian influences, like the Rio de Janeiro funk, the retro sound of the 80’s and the tropical psychodelic sound of the 70’s, creating that way an environment of futurism, like the 21st century music is.

The lyrics are in English and Portuguese and were written by Mylene, who sings them along the electronic beats.

MYLENE has as record released in Brazil and in the United States where she blends electronic music with Afro-Brazilian rhythms.
Her work as a singer was well received by the international press like Interview, Rolling Stone, Downbeat, World Beat Canada and All About Jazz, and also got very good reviews by the Brazilian press.

In 2003 she was a finalist in the 6th Visa MPB Award for Composers.
She has a track of her album included in the english compilation entitled “Nu Brazil II”

Chapa Quente in Campinas on Saturday. This time with renowned remixer and producer DJ Periferico and his new project. Starts at 10 and goes on till very late!
I last saw Periferico play a few years ago in Belo horizonte and he played an excellent set mixing up breaks with booty beats while two MCs worked the stage. So this should be good!
