Largo do Machado
Armed with his trusty MPC beat-making machine and enough ideas to sink a ship, Sany Pitbull has taken funk carioca out of the favela and to the rest of the world with his blending of styles and vision. Not afraid to drop some trancey synths or a poppy hook (as is de rigeur with funk after all), his approach has no doubt been influenced by the mighty Timbaland who veered off the hip hop piste to great effect. It is a rare treat to find some top-notch electronic, booty shaking beats up at Casa Rosa, so don't miss the opportunity.
