...one bad thing: After you listen to these outrageously raw beats from the streets of Brazil, "Arular" by M.I.A. will not sound as original as it did before. But, oh well, every one has their influences. This "Baile funk" stuff is awesome. Or "Rio Funk", either way, I beleive the word "favela" describes the parties where this type of music is played in Brazil.

By the way,...how in the world could a reviewer think all these songs sound the same? This stuff is all over the place. Every minute you're engaged and dancin it up in your car as the dj mixes up an entire UNIVERSE of beats. OKAY, I do confess, its a bit noisy and crazy. But its street music. I think it adds to the charm. The sound is similar to taking one step forward, and then two steps back... you wind up in a different place than you had expected. Though you can here that technology is lacking, it makes this mix all the more charming. The upbeat feel to this album is a spicey treat, and the Do-It-Yourself feel of old school electro is definitely present. There's Afrika Bambaata in the background in one track for sure.

This is street music, raw and real. Its got a DIY feel to it, but that is a good thing. Feels like you're there while djs are mixing it up all dirty in order to keep the place moving. Plenty of vocals (in Portegeuse?) thrown in to the layers of booty shaking rhythms keeps the feel ROWDY. And I mean rowdy... the MCs are screaming things in some other language. But after listening to all that Reggaeton on the radio, I like it.

Mind you, this isn't normal "electronica". Its definitely "urban" music. And sounds a bit 80s/90s. But, as I said before, its all part of its charm.

If you have heard of Diplo (who was on tour with M.I.A.

This music is fun! The music is based on big beat Miami Bass with lyrics shouted in Portuguese. Writing about it, it sounds like it would be an awful mish mash of stuff, but this music is great. It'll get the body moving--this is great party music or for rolling down the street. There's another compilation called "Rio Baile Funk" that also has a lot of this type of music. Both CDs have a few tracks that are on both, but overall both CDs cover slightly different territory in this original style of music from Brazil.

I loved this album. Just listening to it makes me wanna dance all night. It's awesome! Liricks are a little obsene but the sound is really catchy. My favorite performer is Bonde do Tigrão!!
