A current and somewhat recent obsession of mine has definitely been Baile Funk, which roughly translates to Brazilian Booty Music (not really). I love the fusion of Hip-Hop, Dance, and lady vocals. Diplo originally opened my ears to Baile Funk when he produced some tracks on Bonde Do Role’s debut album With Lasers. Now the two are back at it and this time Diplo has produced their whole album Tropicalbacanal. The video for the first single “Kilo” is a wild, fruity sexual fantasy. Is it NSFW? Maybe. Depends where you work I guess. But I’m hyped for this new album which drops June 26 on Mad Decent.
