Tetine's Slum Dunk Presents Funk Carioca - 10 years!

It's been 10 years since Tetine's Slum Dunk Presents Funk Carioca was first released in 2004 on Mr Bongo! The album was pretty much the first Funk Carioca comp to have reached these shores & influenced an entire generation of DJs, producers & beat makers around the world.

We feel extremely proud of it. This is part of a love story that began through the waves of Resonance 104.4fm in Central London in 2002 where we run a radio show named Slum Dunk. There in a small studio in Denmark Str above an Indian Restaurant the first funks were played exhaustively every week for about 3 years to a curious and questioning audience.... not to mention the countless live interviews with artists, Djs, producers, journalists & people linked to the scene in Rio... & of course a great deal of talk on the music itself & its party politics.

The beats are still unbeatable.
The rest is History!
