As many of you may know Diplo the genre-crushing Philadelphia DJ-producer and M.I.A. collaborator has got himself a new label. His first signing is a crazy Brazilian funk carioca group (ohh Diplo you are so predictable!) called Bonde Do Role. Rolling Stone hypes them as one of the "next 10 bands to watch." Describing their sounds as:
from Rolling Stone:
In complete disregard for U.S. copyright law, Bonde do Role (D'eyrot, 22, MC Marina Ribatski, 21, and producer and DJ Rodrigo Gorky, 25) pile super-recognizable samples -- AC/DC, the Grease soundtrack, Tone-Loc -- into an over-the-top party-starting mix. A typical lyric (from "Melo do Caldinho"). They pair the biggest, dumbest samples ever with comically dirty shout-rapped Portuguese lyrics. "The joke is to be as stupid and cheesy as you can be," says MC and producer Pedro D'eyrot, "and people will buy it."
