Munchi and I have been friends for years, and I normally get a heads up on his releases, but it didn’t surprise me at all that he just randomly dropped an insane EP on a Friday night. What did catch me off guard though is that this is a Rasterinha release, a genre that Brice and Comrade were pushing before anyone else. And a genre that most producers don’t quite have a handle on yet. I guess that shouldn’t have thrown me for a loop either, now that I think about it.
Vol II: Rasterinha – Contos Do Caderninho Verde is the latest on Munchi’s Selegna imprint, and it has that raw emotion that we knew Munchi for before he became a household name. Loosely translated as “Tales Of The Green Notebook,” this project was inspired from a journal that he kept between 2009 and 2010. The production is less aggressive and more musical than his last run of releases, and this is pulled off pretty flawlessly. There are only four tunes, and this only lasts 12 minutes, but it’s absolutely beautiful.
The man with the hair has been tucked at home for nearly a year just stacking content for his label and has a ton of shit in the the chamber for 2014, and the output has been ridiculous. You can stream Vol II: Rasterinha – Contos Do Caderninho Verde below. Take note that there’s a link to download this project for free in the Soundcloud description as well. You should also take the time to check out Comrade’s Rasterinha mixtape for DAD and Funk na Caixa’s Rasterinha EP while you’re here. They’re pretty marvelous.
