For the 88th release on 100%% Pure we proudly present RENATO COHEN.
Born and raised in Sao Paolo, RENATO COHEN has almost singlehandedly put the Brazilian dance music scene on the map. With his own unique way of mixing styles, from House to Techno and influences of Funk and Jazz, the Paulista built up a clear Brazilian electronic music identity. Not through musical clichés but by creating a happy and enticing atmosphere, led by the idea that music must always bring something good to people and make their lives better.
His early productions became very known by the audience, when his tracks got used in advertising campaigns of brands such as Coca-Cola and Toshiba. He also worked in other different artistic projects, including remixes for the worldwide hit movie "City of God", soundtracks for modern dance shows and the score for an Alexandre Herchcovitch's fashion show.
We are so thrilled to have him on 100%% Pure Records for the first time. Including a remix by 2000 and One, the Suddenly Funk EP is a true musical gem.
SUDDENLY FUNK: Opening with a hard hitting beat and reverberating percussions and synthesizers, you start asking yourself where the funk is. Then the well rounded melody line drops in and it suddenly hits you: this is no music to sit and listen to. So blow up those speakers and start bashing the disco.
SUDDENLY FUNK [2000 AND ONE'S LO-MOTION FUNK MIX]: When legendary Brazilian techno hero Renato Cohen releases an EP on your label, you cant refrain doing a remix. 2000 and One has proven again that he is a true dance music master that can take a pumpin track and create his own vision for it. In this remix two worlds meet: warm Brazilian funk blends perfectly with a fresh Amsterdam groove. So get ready to get funky.
