Leo Justi – Fresh Sounds in Baile Funk

I’m really digging the work of Rio’s Leo Justi and his fresh spin on Baile Funk.

“Leo Justi likes it rough. 23 year old brazilian DJ and producer is a fan of the sexually-charged baile funk anthems that echo through his hometown of Rio de Janeiro. While his Hype Machine generation peers may think of Baile Funk as an occasional spice to remixes or as something Diplo once liked, Justi digs deep into the sound of Rio’s slums. These raw sounds serve as a basis to his music, while he adds dark atmospheres, chunks of different beat patterns and the occasional sonic joke to them. Justi has a broad musical influence, been an Ozzy fan, plays guitar in 2 indie bands, loves Super Cat and Chet Baker… his mixes, however, aim at only one thing: dancefloor frantic trance.”
