Music: Bodikhuu – Rio / Bodianova

The Mongolian hip-hop scene, anyone familiar with it? Well, I’ve got you covered. Bodikku is a producer and hip-hop obsessive from Ulaanbaatar, the world’s coldest capital city. He works as a crane operator and dreams of living in Brazil. His newest release is titled Rio / Bodianova and is a tribute to the sounds of Brazil, an excellent hip-hop/beats release that sounds fresh and exciting.

Tracks like “De Janeiro” and “Girls Dance” feature vocal samples and Bossa-nova grooves, layered over thumping boom-bap beats. Swirling synth and soul samples are present over tracks like “Obrigado Brazil,” while slower Brazilian soul and funk samples can be heard on “Nova Start” and “Camerawork,” again with synths and grooves from guitar leads and basslines. It really does sound like it’s something straight from a Brazilian hip-hop record, with all of it’s samples and colourful tone and sound. It’s great hearing musicians from different parts of the world create music that sounds fresh and exciting, so props to Bodikhuu for this.

Listen to Bodikhuu’s excellent new project Rio / Bodianova below via Bandcamp and don’t forget to support! Released on Iranian-based label Farsi Records.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians.

I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon.
