Ninos du Brasil is an Italian duo, formed by Nico Vascellari and Nicolò Fortuni. But don’t get fooled by the appearances and expect some laid back Italian tunes from them. Quite the opposite, they like to blend the primordial exotism of the Brazilian percussions with the almost trashy techno beats, a mixture which they call electro-batucada.
Recently released on DFA Records, Aromobates NDB starts with some deep repetitive drums, setting the mood for a techno prelude, adding along the way some tribal flavors to enhance the experience. While on the background some ghostly voices keep repeating incantations like “somos niños”, the pace of the track starts accelerating, and just when you thought you’ve reached the climax, hoping to catch your breath afterwards, you’re thrown back to the carnival of the fast paced electro-batucada.
If you like the sounds of Ninos du Brasil, then you should definitely check out their videos as well, because those are some wicked visual wizardries.
