This EP Blends the Afro-Brazilian Rhythms of Bahia With Bass Music

Get into Telefunksoul and Felipe Pomar's Ré_Con Ba$$ EP.

Brazilian producers Felipe Pomar (of TrapFunk & Alivio) and Telefunksoul come through with a dizzyingly energetic EP in the form of Ré_Con Ba$$.

Telefunksoul, who happens to be one of the main promoters of Bahia Bass music, came up with the concept of exploring the rhythms coming out of Recôncavo of Bahia and showing how they can fit into bass music.

Through the 7-track Ré_Con Ba$$ EP, him and Pomar mold and transform the diverse music of Bahia, fusing its rhythms with afrobeat, future house, deep house and much more.


"Ré_Con_Ba$$ EP indirectly travels in the universe of the 'musical diaspora'," Felipe Pomar writes to OkayAfrica. "The region of the Recôncavo of Bahia has strong rhythmically influence of Angola [and] Congo. The Bahia Bass is a tool of the electronic music strand that within the contxet of the EP connects the regional with the Global Bass."

The EP features additional collaborations with Nikima, Mr. Armeng, Cecilia Stalin, Mc Fabio Lima and Mc Sagat

Check out our premiere of Ré_Con_Ba$ below, which is out now from Kanfudó Records and Subterrâneo Records.
