The brothers JrDeep and Guilherme Lopes that form the Drumagick production team are the prince regents of Brazilian Drum’n'bass. Drumagick similarly re-invented the samba, with a healthy diet of heavy bass, danceﬂoor funk and energetic melody, and made serious waves on this side of the Atlantic. This culminated in a debut LP “Ai Maluco” released on the SambaLoco imprint (Trama Records) that had been the brains behind and engine fuelling this revolution. This included collaborations with Max De Castro and Xerxes de Oliveira (XRS) and helped establish Drumagick as a force to be reckoned with. Although they have not even peaked with their own careers, the Drumagick brothers are already nurturing their own generation of DJ’s and producers from their own Beatmasters Studios in São Paulo. They opened up a label called Beatmasters, focused on drum´n´bass and broken beats.The nu samba show is here to stay and it will continue to rock dance-ﬂoors from Brixton to Brooklyn.
“Malandragem” and “Malta” are probably the next tracks to see the light of day through the Djs turntables. Although both tracks have been produced between December 2001 and January 2002 they still are in a league of their own. They show a perfect blend of drum&bass with brazilian vibes from a Drumagick point of view.
