Splitting time between her native Brazil and her current home of Brooklyn, NY is “carioca bass” queen Zuzuka Poderosa. 2013 saw success and critical acclaim for her Carioca Bass EP, and even an appearance alongside Afrika Bambaataa at a Red Bull Music Academy event at Santos Party House. Now, 2014 finds her releasing her latest single (produced by her touring DJ Burt Fox), “Baile Crunk.” The track’s trapped out swagger meets up with Zuzuka’s sultry Portuguese flow for a song that showcases the notion that dance’s current obsession with urban elements are just as relevant to the streets of New York’s five boroughs as they are to the Brazilian favelas.
