Brazilbeat Sound of Summer Tour: CANCELLED


Thu 10 Feb 2011, 10:00pm

Where: Paradox, 137 Bridge St, Nelson, Nelson / Tasman

Restrictions: R18

Listed by: Mara Weiss

Celebrating 10 Years of BBSS. Since Nego Beto and DJ Mara first brought the Brazilbeat Soundsystem project down to New Zealand from the USA, the percussive, bass-heavy sound has inflamed crowds across Aotearoa.

Live conga drums and percussion mixed with bouncy riddims and deep, twisted basslines makes for a sweaty dancefloor, especially in summer! A BBSS set unfolds like a journey, from Brazilian roots and baile-funk through to drum & bass, with plenty of 4x4 stomp in between and a solid standing in reggae and soundsystem culture.

Special guests Dread Eye on vocals and Exile on saxophone - selected shows.

BBSS are currently working on their second album.
