Post-Timberland, M.I.A. and Slumdog Millionaire, the smartest dance producers have embraced our modern, globalised world of cross-cultural collision and information overload. EXPLOITED Records takes up where the likes of ‘Coldcut’ left off to provide a multi-faceted mix of genres, eras, beats and cultures. EXPLOITED Records leads a merry dance for a massively varied and multi-facteted dancefloor experience.
This new EXPLOITED release is a restless roll through the more tropical climes and comes recommended to any lovers of Man Recordings, Sound Pellegrino, Mad Decent, Made to Play, Dirty Bird, Dubsided or Anabetic.

Today we introduce: CHERNOBYL from Porto Allegre, Brazil – whose collaboration with Praga was already featured on the EXPLOITED-Compilation mixed by Shir Khan.

Since 1995 Dj Chernobyl has had a profound effect on the direction of Brazil’s music scene.

He is a pioneer and responsible for bringing Baile Funk (brazilian booty beat) to the world of rock through his band “Comunidade Nin-Jitsu”, influencing Edu K to produce his world famous hit “Popozuda”.

Chernobyl discovered and signed Bonde do Role, produced their album, introduced them to Diplo (who released them on his Mad Decent label) and has produced most of the tracks on their album ‘With Lasers‘, out on Domino Records.

As a DJ he subverts whatever style of music he plays, from Electro, Miami Bass, 80s, Brazilian Oldschool Baile Funk, Baltimore Club, Afro, Kuduro, or Rock n Roll, bending it all to his NEO BAILE FUNK style.

In 2009 he met Portuguese producers Pedro (Radio Fazuma/Dj Mpula) and Beat Laden from BATIDA who introduced him to PRAGA from Cabo Verde. Chernobyl started editing Baile Funk beats for Praga and made a new Baile Funk vibe mixing his beatbox with Brazilian beats, adding crazy synths and Baile Funk horns to it. BALANÇA has a new balance as this sound mixes Afro-Portugese Raps, American Hip Hop-melodies, Brazilian beats, European Electro noises and Ragga snares.

EMPINA A PIPA features rapper Cabal from Sao Paulo whose track “Senorita” is the biggest Hip Hop-hit in Brazil. For the very first time in history a guy from the Hip Hop-world of Sao Paulo collaborated on a Baile Funk track. Normally people from the Hip Hop-game in Sao Paulo dont respect Baile Funk from Rio de Janeiro. Chernobyl brought Cabal – the most famous rapper from Sao Paolo – together with MC Gi – who is the biggest Baile Funk MC from Santos, a beach near Sao Paulo – to tear down the walls.
These 2 tracks come in a very colourfull package with remixes from all over the place. Its a global affair with global beats.
