I’m proud to announce my new single, BAILE TECHNO, is coming out next Wednesday, May 15, 2013. The new track features influence from the rhythms of brazilian music, specifically a popular style of club music there called baile funk (also funk carioca, favela funk). Despite it’s name, it is an entirely different sound than funk music in America, rather it leans heavily on a electronic percussion and vocal samples. I’ve adopted elements of this sound and fused it with my own signature production.
You can watch a teaser below published via Vine.
(Make sure you mouse over the video and click the speaker at the top left to un-mute.)
New artwork by Melissa B (Toronto) will be revealed this weekend. Baile Techno will be self published in 2 forms worldwide. A medium quality version (128kbps MP3) will be offered for free via Soundcloud and a perfect quality version via BandCamp for only $1 USD where you may buy it as 320kbps Mp3 FLAC, ALAC (Apple Lossless), AAC, or Ogg Vorbis. If the track sells well, I may give out stems for remix purposes to release it as a commercial EP on my label (which I’m currently in the process of relaunching).
