A Arte do Barulho

One great album I missed last year was A Arte do Barulho by Marcelo D2.

The former vocalist from Planet Hemp, and one of the most successful rappers of Brazil, came out with a fresh album, containing great production and a consistent flow from the first till the last track.

This new record differs a bit from the previous ones, with more rock and electronics added to the characteristic organic samba beats that became a trademark of Marcelo in the past. I say it was about time for him to step out of his comfort zone and connect more with the times of Planet Hemp, and this new record does exactly that while keeping the good music alive.

But don’t think he went out to buy some beats from Timbaland or something like that…the samba and bossa nova rhythms are still omnipresent, making the album a cool experience if you’re looking for some good vibe beats and brazilian influences on your life. Great for the end of a rainy afternoon.

I leave you with the music video from the first single, check it out below. Impossible not to sing along with the chorus.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
