Hyped up Brazilian rap trio and reigning queens of baile funk Pearls Negras releases their new mixtape “Nossa Gang” that’s stocked to the brink with 7 tracks of bass inflicted baile funk rhythms that should have you partying all through the weekend.

New mixtape from Jens Lekman!

“While travelling through midwest America some time ago I stopped at a gasstation and bought a WWJD bracelet for $1.99 and insisted that it stood for ‘What Would Jens Do?’. I would look at it when I felt indecisive, think about what Jens really would do and then do the opposite of that. I thought that would be a good way to find some new paths in life, and to get away from the paths I kept taking that didn’t lead me anywhere good.

WWJD is a song about regrets, learning from your mistakes, and bettering yourself. I wrote it last year, recorded it quickly and felt it didn’t fit in with most of the other songs I was writing. Together with ‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’ and ‘I Remember’ they weren’t adhering to the rules I had set up for my next album but they were also too good to forget. So I weaved them in exclusively on this mixtape where they are stations on a longer journey, where loops and smaller fragments, ideas for songs and favourite songs by others swoosh by outside the window. Feel free to open that window and feel the breeze in your hair.

Yours truly,
Jens Lekman”

UK producer/dj Mumdance went on a journey to Egypt recently where he worked with local musicians from the Mahraganat movement. This mixtape done for Dummy Magazine contains brand new original music from that journey.

“Mahraganat is a contemporary youth style which combines elements of traditional Egyptian folk music with breakneck tempos and basic electronic production tools.”
