The Tecno Brega pioneer presents a selection of the Aparelhagem soundsystem culture from northern Brazil.

As part of the week-long series of Choice Mixes celebrating soundsystem culture in Brazil, we hear from Waldo Squash, a pioneer of the Tecno Brega sound. Originating in Belem, Tecno Brega remixes and reworks popular songs from the ’80s. In this episode, Waldo Squash guides us through the rhythmic evolution of a sound that still reigns supreme in the club scene around Belém and much of the northern region of country.
