This movement out of Northern Brazil, literally translates to
Made up of cut and paste remixes of top 40 songs.
yes it is “cheesy”.
Yet. The movement is a fully loaded self sufficient DIY machine. Rad.
For the people by the people. Renegades against any regard to coprywrite or ownership of a track.
A commuanal approach to versioning a version of a version of a tune..
Check out the documentary…..called — Good Copy Bad Copy it explores this issue in greater span.

…..THE FLU (kind of beautiful)
For such a dry and mild winter out here in the Pacific Northwest, people are dropping like flies to the invisible strains of flu’s and bugs propagating in the eerily dry air. I have homies who’ve been sick for weeks, my moms had the flu 3 times already this year! Not only are we in a recession, pinching pennies, holding on to jobs we don’t even necessarily want. But now this… forced into fever, sweats, and bed. Yet looped up on a high repeat, with wellness at a very low success rate. Maybe its a higher powers way of saying…. STEP AWAY, SLOW DOWN..
Or maybe this recession biz has us all worn thin, psychically stressed and weighed down. Microscopically vetting at us.
Either way here’s a spattering of songs that hold a potent dose of ancient wisdom, sonic depth and heavy lidded bliss . Like a bad ass audio vitamin. Digest… Pour one out for the ill.
Flying Lotus "Camel"
....this must be what it sounds like when the big blue virus goes to battle with the immune system.
….These songs are dedicated to fever sleep.. thick deep sweaty and full of nervous energy and sometimes heavy blissed out vision quests.
..Morning comes your fever breaks and you finally feel like a human again, the suns out you get up. have a cup of tea.
