Kafundó Records is back with the second volume of their compilation series, highlighting the latest in the contemporary Bass scene out of Brazil!
This second volume in Kafundó’s compilation series continues with the first’s mission to represent “electronic roots music” from a “third space” within Brazilian social geography. “Cafundó” means a far away and isolated place in Brazilian Portuguese. Beyond the favela/asfalto binary that exists in Brazil’s urban areas, there are alternative spaces that exist both within and outside the city. These places
are “far away” from traditional Brazilian social politics. The most commonly recognized such place is the Afro-Brazilian “quilombo” the Brazilian version of a maroon community.
Not only using Afro-Brazilian traditional rhythms and instruments, but many of these artists look beyond Brazil to the greater African diaspora. Songs using Brazilian regional rhythms are fused with digital styles formed in the ghettos of Jamaica and the United States. In this they aim to reframe the sometimesconflict- ridden Brazilian identity politics, to represent as participants in, and in solidarity with the global
Maga Bo and Wolfram Lange, co-founders of the Kafundó label, are both Rio de Janeiro based Brazilian music experts. Their compilation series on the Kafundó records label benefits from their close relationship with many of the key players in the contemporary Brazilian electronic scene. Look out for their continuing series in collaboration with Dutty Artz!

long time ago I released the first compilation DJ axe.l – Classicos Brasileiros Vol.1 I was happily surprised about the positive resonance and so it was on my long term to-do list to record part two. Now it is done! You can listen here to Vol. 2 and hopefully you use it to build up a wonderful atmosphere during a day outside in nature, in your garden. In my phantasies I see you having a tasteful caipirinha and a big smile on your face! Enjoy!

it’s time to give something back! With all attention, hospitality and warm-hearted I was handled in Brasil during all my stays the last 2 years. I met incredible nice people and for sure they are mostly part of the global bass family and sharing with me and the Globalibre DJ-Team the deep passion for good music and sounds.
On my last trip I had the big pleasure and honor to be guest in the house of the Criolina Collective which is dropping their mixes, productions and radioshows since a lot of years in Brasilia and whole Brasil. Beside my critical status after carnival in Recife/ Olinda (7 days with nearly no sleep, lots of alcohol and dancing) I arrived in time in their beatuiful bungalow to be guest at the big birthday party of DJ Barata.
At this party nearly the whole Criolina DJ-Team played a DJ-Set and transferred their garden terrasse into a big dancefloor with 200 people freakin‘ out. Bouncin‘ funky set’s of brasilian funk classics from the 70’s to centemporary electronic bass music. Total tiredness was the only reason reason for me not to have day 8 of nonstop dancin‘.
DJ Oops & me (axe.l)
When we decided to start our mixtape series here on Globalibre, it was not just an easy way to get a mixtape of DJ Oops – it was a pleasure and wish of mine to have it here on your favorite blog and to share this mixtape with you! So enjoy this musical travel through funky tunes and heavy basses with DJ Oopss!!!
I’m so happy to have the possibility to share here with you this amazing new video of our friend Maga Bo from Rio de Janeiro, BR! I remember the last time I met Bo at Ipanema beach. He was so focused in all the organisation of his album release, video productions and organising the remix productions that it took a few moments for us to get into a talk. I recognize that he already invests all his passion and energy into his project. After watching the new video I was thinking: GOOD INVEST BO!!! I love it!

I can’t resist! The E.P. is already (in parts) downloadable and we don’t want to miss to focus your attention on this release of brazilian Irmão Patricktor4. After 10 weeks of being in Brazil there is a strong connection still there in my head and heart to the country and to this guy with which I got the pleasure being around for more than 2 weeks and play some gigs in Belo Horizonte, Aracajú and Belém.
I have been in the studio with Patricktor4 and listened – sometimes danced! – to the special tecnobrega, afro-beat influenced tracks he produced there.
It’s his passion to combine the afro-brazilian traditional music with contemporary urban beats and this is somethng real fresh and new a contemporary masterpiece of new Brazilian electronic music. Enjoy!
