Mad Decent Worldwide Radio
mad decent worldwide radio # 8 - back in the day (in the favela) Pitbull sound is one of the premier funk carioca dj crews in Rio..
up there with Big mix, furacao 2000, Pipos... and even Soul grand prix way back when they played soul still at baile funks .. Sany played a party I put together in Prazeres.. its a favela high up near corcovado (where the big jesus from micheal jacksons video stays at!)  its probably the highest favela in all of Brazil. If you know my podcast ,, you probably know the drill with Brazillian funk music..
The sounds range from vocal melody, syncopated portugese rhymes.. 5 or 6 extremely overused Samples (pavorati organ hits, rocky theme (chopped to hell), old school miami bass vocal stabs, Dire straghts ìbrother at armsî shows up all the time, Euro techno samples.. and most importantly samba drums (tamberzao, batidao) patterned in an electro rhythm...melody is missing, and repetition is the key..  Dj style is similliar to a dancehall sound in Jamaica.. lyrics are blended by many artists over the same rhythm.. the tempo never changes..... the sound is kinda blowing up worldwide..
    But it started somewhere... (that what this special edition is about!) miami bass gave birth to this strange baby in brazil,  And the Djís ruled the streets, and built the culture between freestyle, bass, house music and
samba in the early 90ís
   Sany did a special mix for mad decent to launch his own carioca funk clube website and podcast ... YOU never hear carioca Djs put it down like this .. Sany had to dig out his actual turntables for this! they stay on the cdj 100 down there!
ITS rio funk party sound track circa 1990..  the first time kids were rapping in portugese over the funk beats.... he puts it out there .. the classics (you got to start with SPRING LOVE!) The musical history told here reflects the first phase of funk, turning from the international influences to a brazilian party, from a inside DJ point of view (don't expect sweet famous standarts, but the rare original dirty PARTY BOOSTERS that made the trick from gringo to ghetto)
you can still catch Sany in Rio 5 nights a week in the clubs and favela bailes. / ITS CRAZY

mad decent worldwide radio # 7 - paris is burned hey hey . mad podcasts coming up..sorry for the delay.. but got my laptop jacked in sao pualo by varig airlines ... and since france whooped their asses in world cup , I thought id go there to see whatís good. and it turns out to be a lot of stuff.   Paris has the nuttiest underground for club music.... no filler or poppy stuff. just dirty nasty disco with a hip hop sensibility, and its hurting us.  Ed Banger records is one lable (shout out to TTC, institubes, arcade mode, clark mag etc...) cause its all goin down,, but i thought Id big up one of my favorite places to play records and let them tell t how it is.. shout out to uffie and feadz (gradmaster feadz guest dj for this one), And Busy P (pedro winter) lays down how it all got this crazy.

dont know the tracklistin but its all ed bangerness

mad decent worldwide radio # 5 - new orleans aint dead, its just got a limp Theres not  place in America more strange than New Orleans, Louisiana, If it was mad before the storm but now its just plane insane.. but in a good way.  if you travel here from the outside, its gonna seem like  whole nother country.
And as far as music goes (in case you didnt know) . . the mississippi delta is the birthplace of most types of modern american music.  Hip hop mighta been born in the bronx, but then it was reinvented in New Orleans.. the krunk we get today playlisted all over the country might have Atlanta in a headlock, but the blueprint was laid out in New Orleans.. Its origins are in bounce music and its still there; its actually having a rejuvenation since there little more to look forward to besides dancing these days.
anyway i never felt more affection for an city like I got it for new orleans, and even though some parts still looks like a nuclear bomb got dropped, its got all the character that you can expect with a city so rich in culture and history
