Brazilian Electronica

Posted on | November 14, 2005 | 2 Comments

Spending this night trying to find 130-135bpm songs for a world music remix I promised some time ago, and I wanted to focus on Brazilian-themed dance tracks. To my great surprise there is such a movement, I found many Bebel Gilberto remixes, as well as bands such as Zuco103, Uma Batida Diferente, and others. iTunes is very handy when browsing and trying to find music for remixes, even odd cases such as Brazilian techno.

    I love the Bebel Gilberto remixes, such as Aganju. Thanks for the tip, Kent.

    I think Brazilian music has so much energy even if they don’t use drum machines, samples, and compression… So there’s more to it, such as clever use of syncopations.
