❔

Some of the roughest funk you'll ever hear from Brazil – tracks recorded live at street parties in support of Rio gangs – all a fair bit more low-fi than mainstream work from the baile funk scene! The music is incredibly bracing – and usually features beats and samples mixed live, topped with spontaneous hip hop rhymes in Portuguese – often of a political or social nature. The sound quality is great, despite the live nature of the recordings – and the rougher edges are mostly in the way the work comes across, with a thuggish, brutal feel. All tracks are by unknown artists, and are untitled too – but the CD has some brief notes that are helpful in understanding the genre.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
