Really cool project! There's a Brazilian artist by the name of Lucas Santtana who went on to make a whole album simply using the acoustic guitar, taking it as far as he could and in a couple of tracks he went into a similar approach as you had here.
I'm a huge fan of Maga Bo's work, specially for his keen ears to new music. Usually, everything he picks or points you to is gold and in this case is no different. Cool track, crazy beats and really slick video too. I didn't know Teba Shumba before this vide and really liked his flow. Thanks for the heads up, I'll post this on my blog.
I'm a big fan of the tool and the concept already and have an account since it was still in beta. My problem is that I find it a bit confusing to use, I never know when to use it, I don't really get what to do when I go to the platform and I have a hard time replying to stuff I get from friends. I can see this being very strong as a commenting tool, generating a lot of insights, but as I said, I have a hard time figuring out how to use it. Probably my fault, for not putting enough effort into it. But still, if it were easier, I'd be using more. Happy to hear more about it.
Thanks for reaching out. In Brazil there's tons of blogs covering just EDM. One of the most respected ones is Bate-Estaca: http://oesquema.com.br/bateestaca/ And DJ Sound and Deep Beep sees a lot of traffic: http://djsound.virgula.uol.com.br http://www.deepbeep.com/ Some smaller blogs are: http://monkeybuzz.com.br/ http://www.innewmusicwetrust.com.br/ http://movethatjukebox.com/ http://avoltabr.com/ And if you want to get a high fee, Warung Club is your place to go: http://www.warungclub.com.br/en Hope it helps. The video looks beautiful. Cheers.
I like the spaced out vibe and how the production is borderline pop, but with "strange" beats. I'd like to see it go crazier though. Good music to make love too, so much that I'll share on a Facebook page I have just for this kind of sound, Bota pra F*der.
I like the mix and the overall timbre, the tone drums are good, but overall I think it lacks personality. There's is just too much of this kind of sound going around, it just becomes background music for when you are doing something else. I'd say explore further, go crazier. Around 2:30 things get more interesting, but then you don't resist the obvious break down. Fight it and do the unexpected.
