Batuk Freak debut album. Mashing up hip hop with baile funk, trap and Afro-Brazilian beats - a uniquely Brazilian mix peppered with North-Eastern folk samples. She’s spinning bass-heavy dancefloor sounds into other dimensions. She flips baile funk into her own more nuanced universe, one that’s dense with multi-layered references, from batucada (Gueto Ao Luxo) to dubby dancehall (Sandália). Spacey highlight Mundo Loco is Conka’s invitation to her dream world, a technicolour paradise where the birds sing Erykah Badu.
