Boy 8-Bit’s “Suspense Is Killing Me” was a major sleeper for us (whole EP is brilliant), so it’s with great pleasure that we present this equally weird and fantastic EP that we can’t stop listening to. These remixes slowly stacked up over a year or so and now we have a really cool set plus the vintage “Ghost House (Suspense Is Killing Me Pt 2).” Enjoy death metal and dreamy pop from Memory Tapes, house & live sax from Obi Blanche, and an awesome reworking of “Suspense” from Philipe De Boyar. The new remix of “Cricket Scores” from Boy 8-Bit is standard brilliance from him, working one of his catchy horn synth things for the chorus. Preview all of them here, purchase links below: itunes(US) turntablelab amazon PRE-order vinyl ltd 500 pieces, full pic sleeve + free 320 mp3s!

Favela on Blast, the directorial film debut from Grammy-nominated DJ and producer, Diplo, and his partner Leandro HBL, documents a vibrant and innovative musical subculture that has emerged in Brazil’s impoverished slums, known as favelas. Well beneath the radar of mainstream society for the last 20 years, they have their own language, style and heroes. Their music and culture have gone mostly unnoticed outside of South America until now. Favela on Blast captures the rarely seen stories of MC’s, DJ’s, dancers, and cultural producers through the eyes of Diplo and Brazilian filmmaker Leandro HBL, with memorable appearances from funk superstars Deize, Tigrona, Mr. Catra, and Duda Do Borell.
Favela on Blast documents the culture surrounding “Funk Carioca,” a musical rhythm that mixes the American electronic funk of the 1980’s with the most diverse influences of Brazilian music. It is one of the most interesting musical movements in the world and it comes from one of the most violent and poorest places too: the slums of Rio de Janeiro. Bombastic rhythms coming from the Miami Bass and loops and samples are united to powerful rap vocals using Brazilian slang. This music is designed to be listened to as loud as possible and with high bass pumping through the tropical nights of Rio. The heroes are the creators- the musicians. Their pace is set between colossal street parties; propped with rudimentary sound-systems, warring drug factions, and an eerily tense city where the Police and societies elite have the upper hand until it comes to their musical culture, always Brazil’s heart and nation’s identity.
An Official Selection of SXSW Film Festival 2009, Favela on Blast was not an easy feat to be conquered. Little funding, unfamiliar territories, and broken translations proved to be harsh obstacles for Diplo and Leandro. However, to show the world the music that has helped acts such as Diplo, Bonde de Role, and a heap of Mad Decent artists rise to international prominence was worth the trouble.
