FUNK FAVELA | HEAVY BAILE | DANCE HALL | ELECTRONIC

leo-just-headshot-by- julio secchin

Leo Justi is a Brazilian producer and DJ who’s championing a sound called “Heavy Baile”, a style which sounds like baile funk’s hi-fi, hyper-rowdy little brother. Justi’s recent sound-defining Heavy Baile mixtape is like the rebirth of Hollertronix-era Diplo with its blend of Western and European club styles and his own bass’d up take on party music. His career is dedicated to changing people’s perspective on the funk music genre, which has always been marginalized, by expanding and exploring it’s limits. The young produce has managed with this audacious work to reach international grounds, working with the label Waxplotation, as well as developing partenerships with M.I.A., Phantogram, Tropkillaz, Emicida, MC Guimê e MC Carol.
