… in the city of Rio de Janeiro, one side of the ocean is all about nice flats where the richest minority lives. The other side is the ghetto side where the favela’s sound systems organize the craziest parties with their massive speakers playng a heavy dose of bass.
-ah!…we know this funk balls as Baile Funk.
Borned in the city, Phillies Blunt and DJ John Woo, from the brasilian digital media colective Apavoramento Sound System, have put together a live P.A. producing classic Baile Funk tracks mixed with Ghettotech, Booty Bass, Electrofunk and a bunch of nasty beats …
The 2 djs execute their 2 hours set playing laptops,digital turntable scratches,samplers and VJ softwares. Along with the djs, images of the history of the baile funk scene, terror flicks, international conspiracies, bboys battles e bootygirls dancers are projected on the screen.
PLUS : the performance could also be enhanced with the presence of a real baile funk mc and funk-girl dancers.
