DJ Incidental – Tambor E Flor Mixtape

By 22 September, 2012

The last DJ Incidental mix we featured (A Laussa Qué Dinheiro Mixtape) was a high-tempo, bass heavy affair, perfect for Saturday nights and getting the bloodflow going. On Tambor E Flor we hear a different side of DJ Incidental, relying on classic percussion-led tracks from the Northeast of Brazil. The result is pretty special.

In the text for the mixtape DJ Incidental writes that this is a mixtape for people that like “candomblé, Creole drumming, Afro-Latin percussion, cavalo marinho (which translates as “seahorse” but is in fact a variant of bumba-meu-boi), Brazilian drumming, afoxé and other drumming”, urging them to “get rid of the living room sofa and dance!” This is pure unbridled joy from Northeast of Brazil, and clearly marks DJ Incidental as a DJ to keep your eyes on, especially if you’re into raw Brazilian beats.
