Brasil Summerfest: Baile Funk Rooftop Festival Closing Party
Festival closing party featuring baile funk’s hottest party collectives and genre bending DJs from Brazil.
BATEKOO is the premiere LGBT, Afro-Centric party collective in Brazil. The collective was born in Salvador, Bahia in 2014 as a party made by black producers for the black marginalized community. Nowadays, it has a configuration of a movement that aims to increase value and promote black culture and its aesthetics. Since its creation, BATEKOO's goal is to empower urban youth all over Brazil, focusing on generating a safe space to all the minorities from the LGBT community. The vibe you'll find at a BATEKOO party is a mixture of urban Afro-American with Brazilian funk events that happen in the favelas. The DJ sets range from baile funk, trap, kuduro and hip hop. In 2018, BATEKOO was recognized as São Paulo’s best party by Folha de São Paulo, the country’s main newspaper.
Rio de Janeiro producer and DJ Omulu aka Antonio Antmaper is one of the creators of Rasteirinha, a blend of funk carioca with reggaeton and axé. Ask him about Brazilian funk’s global success and he’ll tell you that he had something to do with it. “I feel a little responsible for this second baile funk world wave,” he says. “I first sent MC Bin Laden and Brinquedo songs to Diplo, and I think he introduced it to Skrillex, who made ‘Bololo Ha Ha’ known everywhere.” The rasterinha-bass-mestre continues to release dancefloor monsters and tour the world over.
The Rio de Janeiro bass bandits Marginal Men have become synonymous with explosive DJ sets. The duo is made up of Gustavo Elsas and Pedro Fontes who were creators of Wobble, a party voted 'best party' by Rio 2014 Night Prize. Since then, Marginal Men has been performing festivals in Brazil and around the world, and releasing bass crushing productions with collaborators including MC Bin Laden, Branko, MC Toy, and many more.
