Big Hits From The Hill – Flamin' Hotz Funk, You Down?

CD (Item 696541) Flamin Hotz, 2008 — Condition: Used
2 CDs
$3.99 ...

CD

A heady brew of contemporary Brazilian funk – the booty-shaking, favela-founded sort that's lately been cooking up dancefloors around the globe! The cuts here are all a bit more hard-edged than mainstream examples of the genre – mixed up and mashed up heavily in a blazing blend of beats, basslines, and hip hop lyrics in Portuguese! And the package is a lot better done than most others of this nature – all top-shelf production with full notes in a lavish color booklet. 23 tracks in all – including "Tipo Bang Bang" by MC Sargento, "Electro Base" by Phabyo DJ, "Aperte Um Quebe" by DJ Edger, "Vem Com A Mao No Red Bull" by Cabide DJ, "Jungle Bass" by Phabyo DJ, "Troca-aplica" by MC Loura E Sany Pitbull, "Amazonia" by Sany Pitbull, "Um Real" by MC Gringo E MC Binho, "Bonde Da F" by Cabide DJ, and "Seduzir Voce" by MC Xana & Rio Bass Commando.  © 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.

A Hora E A Vez Da MPM
Universal (Brazil), 1966. Used
The second album by this amazing group – a magical trio who really pushed the boundaries of bossa! The MPM in the title refers to "modern popular music" – a way of naming the work on the set that shows that it's more than jazz, more than bossa, more than Brazilian – a ... CD

Polydisc (Brazil), 1998. Used
This great Brazilian funky samba team offer up a nicely re-recorded batch of 20 of their best tracks ever! The quality of the work is very good, with nice spare production that allows plenty of room for the duo's choppy guitar work, and their deeply soulful vocals. It's a shame that none of these ... CD

Registro
Trilhos (Brazil), 2005. Used

Joao Gilberto

Amoroso/Brasil
Warner, 1977/1981. Used
A collection of two albums that Joao Gilberto did for Warner Brothers in the late 70s/early 80s. Amoroso is some pretty sweet stuff from Joao Gilberto – featuring a core jazz combo playing along with a larger set of arrangements, in a manner that's similar to some of Jobim's work from the ... CD
Blue Note, 2004. Used
A dream come true! Someone at Blue Note is keeping their eyes and ears on the street and in the clubs – because here's another late model conceptual triumph – a remix project pairing current innovators in the club and hip hop underground with classic numbers from the label's vaults! ... CD
Plastic (Italy), 1960s. Used
Kind of crazy – but that's what we've come to expect from the Plastic label! The set's a wild batch of Latin-tinged jazzers from the De Wolfe sound library studios – and it features a nice twist on the usual set of funky lost studio classics! There's a lot of cuts on here we've never ... CD
