"Here is part two, a political statement, full of the sinister and sexual energy that rules the world. We aim to offend everyone."
The 45-minute mix is a follow up to Putaria Maxima Volume 1 from 2017, also released via Venus X's GHE20G0TH1K label. Like that mix, the second instalment covers a lot of musical and geographical ground: "rap, dance, dembow and R&B, among other genres, from all the ghettos of the world… Brazil to Atlanta to Dominican Republic to Memphis to Mexico to Nigeria," write the US pair.
The inspiration for the mixtape series came out of Venus X and Asmara's trip to Brazil a few years ago: "During our trip we heard so much American rap in the streets we were shocked, we started to imagine baile funk MCs over rap beats, and so we decided to do this mix." They add: "Here is part two, a political statement, full of the sinister and sexual energy that rules the world. We aim to offend everyone."
Putaria Maxima Vol 2: TROUBLE IN PARADISE features edits and remixes from friends of GHE20G0TH1K, including Total Freedom and Bbymutha, and more mainstream names, such as Skepta, A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Bobby Schmurda and Mike Will Made It.
