Subterrâneo Records brings new Brazilian pop fusion and gangsta rap from Salvador, Bahia. "Brazil's capital of happiness" has always been a vibrant hub of musical invention where styles meld to form new genres. Salvador's Carnival, the world's largest party, was the first place electric guitar was heard in Brazil. Samba originated in the region, which is also the birthplace of tropicália pioneers Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, and more recently of styles like Axé and samba-reggae and that mix local Afro-Brazilian genres like Forró with calypso and other carribean influences.
Lá Eles' six-song debut Infinito continues Salvador's grand tradition of fusing regional music with new influences. Check the electric guitar pulsing through "A Pulso," the reggae groove of "Ouro Bahia," the smooth trombone & trumpet lead on "Pela Cidade," the samba percussion instrument agogô on "Retirante," and the dash of synth sprinkled throughout. With a slew of guests guided by the voice of Beto Wilson, Infinito is so well-crafted and pristinely-produced that its complex time signatures breeze by effortlessly.
Oddish and Lá Eles were both featured on Subterrâneo's eclectic debut compilation, Você Pensa Sub. We're looking forward to what's next from this vibrant young label!

51% is a super group of rappers and producers that started working together during 2005, they joined forces while working nights at J.C.M studios, on separate projects. 51% are: Taboo+, Jozeph, Shai Fishman, Avi Ashkenazi & Avi Golzman. After a year and a half of intense working the album was done. The band itself creates everything revolves the project, from the music to the graphics, clips, shows and publicity. In 51% everyone do what he does best and that's the corner stone that leads us forward. Till now we put out 2 albums. The debut album called “51 Percent” and the second one called “Zehu” (which is “That’s It” in hebrew).
Our manifest is "music should be free" that's the reason we give the album free in our shows. We believe that giving the album for free gives us more crowd and more intense relationship with the crowd. In order to keep close with our audience we also release songs to the internet every few months, and we let people download them for free. There is also a Collection of songs called “Songs From The Boidem” the include 24 songs of us in “Megatron” 51% form and also as solo artists (we do that once in a while).
In our shows we created an interactive system that helps up to communicate better with the crowd. In that system people can record themselves to a web cam & a microphone and then the system create a bit from them. Atop this crowd-generated beat, we are rapping. This concept is called “The Song With The Crowd”. Off course that’s not the only interactive thing we do in the show but in order to find out more you can just jump over and observe a show. You can also check out youtube channel for videos from the show (http://www.youtube.com/aviashkenazi)

This is a special FMA Springtime shoutout for those who have come through a very tough Winter and an unpredictable March. From blizzard conditions to torrential rains, gale force winds, uprooted trees, down electrical wires, and flooding of biblical proportions, we could all use some sunshine right now. And as the temperatures flirt with 70 degrees in the Northeast, let's turn our focus to the warm production and skillful lyricism of Harlem's own Cvees.
Consisting of Probe DMS, Ike P, and Swave Sevah, this hip-hop trio has been grinding within the underground for at least a decade now, earning special guest spots on one of J-Live's earlier albums as well as seeing their own work released independently on labels like Sub-Verse and DMS Country Recordings. Probe is somewhat of a triple threat as an MC, DJ, and producer. His collaboration with pianist Jon Solo as Spymusic resulted in "Cloak," one of the most hypnotic singles of 2004. They quickly followed up with an album that combined hip-hop, jazz, soul, and house music that proved impossible to ignore.
Here's Probe alongside Ike and Swave trading verses while sampling liberally from a Take 6 classic. With the weather getting warmer, this seems like as good a time as any to "Spread Love To Ya."
