Various Rio Baile Funk: More Favela Booty Beats
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Essay
Baile funk's gritty ghetto beats and repetitive fútbol chants are almost futuristic in their stripped primitivism, and perfect fodder for a worldwide club audience begging for something less subtle, less commercialized, more punch-to-the-face direct in its delivery. Tracks like Voltair‘s grimy "Cleck Cleck Boom" and the glitchy Bonde do Role mix of Edu K's "Hot Mama" show baile to be expanding its horizons under the world‘s spotlight, while retaining that down-low directness, making More Favela Booty Beats not just "more" but "must-have" for the favela funk enthusiast.
