Outras Terras Mixtape
Know your crunk from your coco? Maga Bo strides into 2010 with a mixtape crafted entirely with his own productions
DJ, producer and sound-recordist — and curator of the Sambacana Brazilian music archive here on Spannered — Maga Bo seems to be on a lifelong intercontinental cultural exchange programme.
Outras Terras features collaborations with artists from a dizzying array of locations, including Jahdan Blakkamoore (Brooklyn), BNegão (Rio de Janeiro), Ghislain Poirier (Montreal), Filastine (Barcelona), Pacheko (Caracas), Fletcher (Cape Town), Dr. Das (London), Matona (Zanzibar), Abena Koomson (NYC), Teba (Cape Town), Xuman (Dakar) and Speed Freaks (Rio de Janeiro).
Cultural building blocks in the mix range from ragga, hip hop, dub and breakcore through to kuduro, cumbia, crunk, coco and samba. Trip over to Bo's blog for detailed descriptions of all the tracks and some cool cover art.
