Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

Brazil's performance in their first match of the 2006 World Cup promised much but largely failed to take off. Much the same could be said, especially if you were really desperate for a link, of Baile Funk (or Carioca if you prefer). Like Reggaeton, Carioca, a blend of funk, samba, hip-hop and Miami booty bass, was hailed as the next big thing last summer but ultimately petered out. Whether it was the foreign lyrics or the fact that most of the songs sounded almost exactly the same, we'll never know. It was, of course, an absolutely enormous influence on M.I.A's awesome Arular though.

Bonde do Tigrão's O Baile Todo may have been mistaken by a friend of mine for a Portuguese cover of Who Let The Dogs Out? but it's a terrific example of the genre.
