I am currently writing a review of "More Favela Booty beats" for Earplug and got these excellent baile photos that I had to post. Baile funk for me is without a doubt the most happening music in Brazil at the moment, I hear good things like the Parteum mixtape "ergo" or some rock mash-up by Gaub, but da funk is where it's at. The new Edu K "Illegal" have great, great tracks on them, completely dumb and danceable, and the forthcoming Funk Mundial vinyl series from Man Recordings is looking really good. The first release will be Stereotyp with Edu K MCing, it's a dense hypnotic baile based but not-quite baile track. Brazilian dancefloors love it, modern, danceable and electronically funky but with sexy sing-a-long refrains in Portuguese.
