*State:: Rio Grande do Norte
Album: Cretino (2012)
DuSouto is a producer and multi-instrumentalist from Natal, way up in north-East Brazil. He mixes local rhythms like baiao and carimbo with international influences – he’s made up genres like bregaton which mixes brega with reggaeton. This track Cretino is a ragga-xote crossover. He’s pretty unusual as the music-scene in the state of Rio Grande do Sul is heavily dominated by hard rock. Apparently DuSouto is going for a dubstep vibe on their new material. So we’ll be watching out for that.
