The São Paulo band MicroDub, led by music producer Bidiztone Anderson, released on February 2, 2020 on all digital platforms their newest work, the EP “O Pipa”. The album is mixed by Victor Rice, winner of two Latin Grammys as "Mix Engineer" - and who also participates in the EP on one of the tracks as a bassist - and mastering the Pernambuco producer Buguinha Dub, who has worked with names like Nação Zumbi, Cordel do Fogo Encantado, Natiruts, among others.
The EP comes with five tracks and special guest appearances such as that of the American singer and instrumentalist Gracie Bassie. The singjay Ras Ital B and the singer and MC Diggão Ragga, members of MicroDub, also release their voices. “The name of the EP, 'O Pipa', comes from the lyrics of the homonymous song on the album, written by Diggão Ragga. She recounts the life of a boy who chose to be 'steam' (scout at the entrance to the drugstores), a sad and common reality in the Brazilian peripheries and slums ”, explains Bidiztone.
With elements of Brazilian music - such as the funk flow present in the title track - and electronic beats, in addition to the strong and ubiquitous influences of Jamaican sound roots, the EP features 4 tracks and also a dub version of “O Pipa”, by Victor Rice. Graxa Pura was responsible for art direction and digital distribution.
