Munchi – Vol II: Rasterinha EP (Contos Do Caderninho Verde)

Posted on 03 March 2014 by Andrés

MunchiMoombahton Darling Munchi comes out with new EP this time dedicated to the new genre Rasterinha wich is a mixture of Baile Funk and Reggaeton. And this 4 Track EP is a real beast !!
In his on words – “Baile Funk on Reggeton’s standard 96 BPM. I know that there were a lot of experiments that were influenced or went either all out Funk or Reggeton, but never in this way. This shit was fresh, 100% Funk and straight up all stripped down.
Baile Funk has always been a huge influence and when making Moombahton this was a crucial element in most of my tracks. Being at 108 I had to figure a way to incorporate it at that BPM. Over the past 3 years I have been making a shitload of 108 Funk rhythms, so making the step to Rasterinha on this project was a very exciting one! It felt really familiar, yet it was actual Funk instead of inspired by it.
I instantly made these tracks, but with 1 crucial difference. I wanted to make it in a way that kept that rawness of Funk. Not overpolishing it, something which I grew very tired of along the way. It made the tracks seem too “perfect” if that makes any sense. Since I use the same program as a lot of the Funkeiros out there (Acid Pro) it was really cool to explore similar production methods and experimenting with making heavier Rasterinha rhythms. Besides that I have been listening to a lot of Lo Fi and Psychedelic stuff, so you might hear that influence in the tracks too.”
