Diplo's 'Favela on Blast' Documentary to See Release in July
- Words: Patric Fallon
Between running his own label, collaborating with superstars, and DJing around the globe, it's a wonder that Mr. Wesley Pentz, the man better known as Diplo, had any time to finish his documentary about the funk carioca movement, Favela on Blast. We've been following those kinds of tropical sounds coming from Brazil for some time now, and Pentz actually finished his film a couple of years ago, but news of Diplo's doc finally seeing wide release on DVD still excites us. Mad Decent puts out Favela on Blast July 20, but in the meantime, you can check out film details on its MySpace page and watch the trailer below. (via Pitchfork)
