Check out this Heavy Baile mixtape, a reinvention of the genre that owes its sudden prominence to the rise of the DJ/Producer who coined the phrase – Leo Justi. “Heavy baile” is a more outward-looking take on its parent prototype, as much a product of the new ‘global jukebox’ approach to sound construction as it owes to the heartbeat beat of Rio. Here you’ll stumble across influences from UK drum ‘n’ bass, Detroit’s ghettotech or Baltimore club. Even French dance icons Daft Punk are there in the mix. Download/stream Leo’s mixtape above courtesy of his imprint Waxploitation.
