Up and coming Brazilian duo Balako just released their debut EP “Hora De Balako” for the fine people over at the excellent Greco Roman label and we here at Discobelle are extremely pleased that they wanted to contribute to our mix series.
Balako AKA Diogo Strausz and Rodrigo are producers and multi instrumentalists out of Rio De Janeiro. The pair has a knack for mixing up rare samples with their own unreleased, genre-spanning edits with their styles ranging from techno and house to salsa and carimbo and to blending that with ’70s disco/funk in order to create something both retro and current which their mix for us is a smashing testament to.
Tracklist for the mix after the jump.
Greco-Roman’s Roosevelt has been laying low for a while so it’s nice to see the Cologne-based singer/producer back in action with “Night Moves.” The new single is self-described by Marius Lauber as an “ode to the night,” and is a superb introduction to his forthcoming debut album.
