Features the choicest DJ cuts from the Daora compilation available on 2CD (MAIS 016CD) -- a collection of the freshest hip-hop, leftfield beats, Afrobeat and dub-influenced sounds from Brazil. Compiled by respected São Paulo beat-head Rodrigo Brandao -- who has collaborated with members of The Roots, Afro-beat master Tony Allen, producer Prince Paul (De La Soul), and artists from the Ninja Tune and Big Dada stables -- it features tracks that represent the musicians, MCs, and beat-heads making some of the most thrilling urban music in "the alternative lanes of Brazil's third world megalopolis." Rodrigo explains: "Blending both the foundations of boom-bap and Brazilian rhythmic and melodic heritage, Daora (São Paulo street-slang for something that's 'f*cking cool') is an introduction to the most cutting-edge beat culture plus percussive-oriented music coming out of Brazil today." Rodrigo Brandao is one of the Brazilian beats movement's most respected generals whose career has been pegged to the scene he loves. An in-demand producer, collaborator and MC, he's been crowned the official MC of the Zulu Nation, Brazil by none other than the father of hip-hop, Afrika Bambaataa. He rose to fame in Brazil as one-half of acclaimed Brazilian hip-hop pioneers Mamelo Sound System and, alongside Mike Ladd and Scotty Hard, recently featured on Ropeadope's acclaimed Brazilian-US collaboration Ekundayo. He has brought international acts like De La Soul, Mos Def, and Talib Kweli to São Paulo and Brandao's mission is to discover and join the dots between Brazilian music and its American and African families.
