Brooklyn-based artist Zuzuka Poderosa releases “Psicodelia”, the newest single from her debut EP Carioca Bass. “Psicodelia,” remixed by Nego Moçambique, also known as Marcelo Martins, features Zuzuka’s signature post-modern baile funk – a style born in the slums of Brazil – that will make you get up and dance to the catchy beats. Along with “Psicodelia,” Carioca Bass will feature the single “Seda,” produced by DJ Kush Arora, and other six remixes by Nego Mozambique, Jubilee & Burt Fox, Sonora, and Chrissy Murderbot among others. Carioca Bass will be released in January 2013 through Little Owl Records.
Born and raised in Brazil, the half-Indonesian artist Zuzuka Poderosa moved to NYC to study jazz vocal improvisation. She is now known for bringing baile funk – which she calls ‘Carioca Bass’ – from the underground scene to the streets of Brooklyn and to many other stages around the world. Her carioca bass style has often been compared to M.I.A., who brought the sound to the mainstream with her song “Bucky Done Gun” in 2005. This year, Zuzuka performed at several showcases during South By Southwest, including a performance at our own Austin Vida party.
