“A crunk cosmopolitan, Rio de Janeiro's MAGA BO bumps more hot street-side beats than anybody we we've ever met. He's played everywhere from Zanzibar to Sri Lanka to Capetown, trading ideas and sonics with musicians along the way. (it made licensing this mixtape EASY!) For example, Maga Bo was working with top baile funk MC Mr. Catra years before most folks had even heard of the music—and the tune drops on his debut mixtape CD, Confusion Of Tongues. You'll also hear exclusive Maga Bo productions voiced by Senegalese hip hop godfathers PEE FROISS, new school Moroccan rap heroes BIGG and K-LIBRE, and more. When the freelance sound engineer works outside of his Brazil home-base, Maga Bo stays for weeks at a time: voicing dubplates, recording musicians, doing things like skills exchange and workshops (i.e. teaching young African hip hoppers how to rock pirated audio software...) Call it what you want—creating community, deconstructing the exotic, making collaborations in a fair and respectful way—the music speaks for itself. Mixed live on London's Resonance FM, Confusion consists largely of these unreleased collaborations. The CD includes two unmixed tunes at the end—a Maga Bo special, and a remix by NETTLE (DJ /RUPTURE's live ensemble).
