Image: 1582469 Welcome to Neo Baile, a new take on the traditional sounds and aesthetics of Brazil’s Baile Funk (or Funk Carioca) that challenges the established order to create something new, exciting and forward thinking.
Mr Bongo is extremely proud to present The Sound of Neo Baile compilation LP, taking tracks from the album (MRBCD114). Featuring 6 unreleased and exclusive tracks from worldwide producers that re-interpret the love-it-or-hate-it Brazilian Baile Funk sound. The compilation has been put together by two of the movement’s most knowledgeable players: Sao Paulo-based Funk na Caixa aka Renato Martins and London-based Sean Casey aka Bumps, founder of Club Popozuda.

The Sound of Neo Baile EP features established names such as DJ Comdrade aka Xao, whose Favela Trap album made a major dent in the burgeoning scene at the end of 2012 and Rio-based Maga Bo, who has been producing Brazilian-flavoured bass music since the early 00s. Alongside these are upcoming artists you’ll most definitely want to keep an eye on including Ophex from Lithuania, Gato Preto from Mozambique/Dusseldorf, Chuck Upbeat from Moscow and London-based Bumps, one of the compilers.

Drop what you’re doing and get moving to the sounds of Neo Baile. You won’t be able to resist!
