Maga Bo’s new album Quilombo do Futuro dives deep into afro-Brazilian rhythms and sound system culture. It’s the roots of the terreiro growing and overtaking the asfalto. Crumbling it bit by bit. Life that springs from urban decay. Coco, maculelê, samba, jongo and capoeira meet ragga and dub, hip hop and kuduro, grime and dubstep. Organic elements combined with electronic production to bring the punch and power for big sound systems, this is serious batucada and bass, mids, treble. TUDO.

Maga Bo has performed and worked in over 40 different countries — from Delhi to Sydney, Berlin to Addis Ababa, New York City to Brasília, all the while keeping his feet (and ears) firmly planted in the sonic axis RJ/SP/BA — Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Salvador. Inspired as much by his experiences touring internationally in the global beats and bass world as his time spent in the traditional Afro-Brazilian roots scene in Rio de Janeiro, Quilombo do Futuro offers a careful juxtaposition of raw, heavy bass with organic, instrumental and vocal subtlety. Far from relying on pre-made loops of “Brazilian” drums or other shallow cultural signifi ers, this album was recorded with some of the most original and brightest musicians in Brazil today.

    Having just been dumped after a very long relationship (hours ago) and seeing how Thursday is my only day off (other than Monday, the most boring day of the week) I can’t think of a better way to get mah swagga back than getting lost in a smorgasbord of Brazilian chunes with some good company. A flawless, dynamic set from an artist abroad? I’m down. Give me booze, give me bass, give me bongos. #sgoducks
