Diggin’ in the Crates: Some Brazilian Music

I’m finally getting around to doing the Radio.Blog post I got inspired to do back when I wrote about the Brazilian music guides. There’s a variety of styles here from: Samba Reggae, MPB (Brazilian Popular Music), Axé, Samba, Hip Hop, and a little Bossa Nova. Grab a caipirinha and enjoy!.

Track listing and a few comments:

01 – Zuco 103 – Outro Lado (NY C12 Mix)

02 – Suba – Felicidade (Buscemi Mix)

03 – Claudio Zoli – Noite Do Prazer – This is the song I mentioned that has that heavy George Benson influence.

04 – Claudio Zoli – Livre Pra Viver
