The iconic Rio DJ throws down an ass-shaking baile funk masterclass.

If anyone knows what “funk” means for Brazilians, then this man — the iconic Grandmaster Raphael — knows it best. He’s picked up a fair amount of knowledge over the course of his decades in the game. From navigating the technical difficulties of the equipment and unreliable electricity to the history of violence at parties, Grandmaster Raphael knows the stories that changed the beat of Brazilian music. His Choice Mix presents the carioca funk hits that inspired generations of local producers. You’ll hear diverse sounds ranging from electro and Miami bass-inspired tunes that dominated the Brazilian airwaves in the 90’s.
