Brazilian dj extraordinaire Chernobyl has been a pioneer in the Brazilian music scene since 1995, he’s one of the main pushers of baile funk, he discovered and signed Bonde Do Role and then produced their album. As a dj he has a knack for flawlessly mixing electro, Miami bass, 80s, oldschool baile funk, Baltimore club, afro, kuduro, or rock n roll, bending it all into his neo Baile funk style.

He teams up with growing German label Exploited Records (run by prolific dj Shir Khan) for the release of the “Empina A Pipa” EP (also available at Beatport) which will be out digitally today and then on vinyl in the middle of January. The EP features a wide variety of remixes from all over the world including fellow Porto Allegre resident Edu K, Berlin big shot Samim, Bavarian bounce maestro Dex (from Malente & Dex fame), Amazonian tribal guru Joao Brasil, Mexican neo-cumbia darling Toy Selectah and Lisboa newcomer Beat Laden. Not to mention the marvellous Finnish duo and remixers du jour Renaissance Man. They bring us a remix of the b-side track “Balanca” filled with Finnish sisu mixed in with tropical beats and chopped up Portuguese rap, it’s gritty and powerful with enough horns to make heads turn on the dancefloor.
