As Brazil's top baile funk DJs like Sany Pitbull & Sandrinho are using more and more sophisticated MPC beat rocking equipment (sin decks even).
In Europe, their funk wielding contemporaries are taking it back to the (Miami Bass) old school and chopping up funk breaks with vinyl.
Man Recodings have released a banging Funk Battle Weapons record so now you too, like me, can pretend you are Q-Bert in Rio but manage to break the needles, ruin the record and annoy upstairs.
Here's an exclusive promo cut made from the breaks courtesy of DJ Beware & MC Gringo.
