Brazilian Funk Explosion!
Apologies for my absence. As you may have read in the past, I'm getting married later this summer and that's been keeping me plenty busy. Add to that the work that needed to get done for the upcoming Wax Poetics issue, which will be all about Brazilian music, of which yours truly contributed four unique journalistic morsels (one big one on the late, great Tim Maia). With that theme in mind I present to you a super dope mix from my main man DJ Cliffy whose Black Rio 2 I very favorably reviewed for said forthcoming issue of WP and which you should be able to buy now or very soon.
The downloadable mix features a tight selection of cuts from the generous comp. You can get it here on zShare or here on mediafire.
Or, you can just stream it here.

I'll be back sometime soon with some more Brazilian goodies, some MJ rarities and more. Also, if you haven't heard the new Mayer Hawthorne joint, you should. Yes, it's a cover, but for my two cents Mr. Hawthorne one-upped the original.
