Navy - Kilo Kish

Art and music have the power to make you feel like travelling between dimensions and merging with the universe. If you doubt it, give a listen to “Navy”. If you close your eyes and try to picture everything Kilo Kash is saying, I can guarantee you won’t be in Earth until the end of the song.

Filha da Noite - Janine Mathias

Here’s one more talented Brazilian woman giving us the grace of her music.

It’s hard - and unfair - to label Janine Mathias.

She was born in Brasília, Midwest Brazil (also its capital city), and started her career in Curitiba, South Brazil; but the observable manifoldness in her music doesn’t stick only to the fact that she collects influences from all those places.

Meu Rap Jazz - Tássia Reis

This playlist would make absolutely no sense if I relied only on American artists or male artists. We’re here for diversity, creativity, freedom, courage and self-expression; and as a woman and proud Brazilian, I feel like I have the right and the responsibility of giving space to female artists and Brazilian artists, especially when there are so many making good music that sounds perfect for this playlist.

F.U.T.W. - Jay-Z

Jay-Z is not in the name of this playlist only to create a punchline, rhyming with Salvador Dali - by the way, my first idea was to actually put a female rapper’s name. “Music to Nicki & Kandinsky lovers” seemed good. Nicki, Kandinsky, nice rhyme, nice references. I love Nicki Minaj’s music and Kandinsky’s paintings.

What Cool Breezes Do - Digable Planets

Digable Planets were the kings of chill, with Ladybug Mecca as their Queen Bee (side note: she’s Brazilian, I’m so proud).

Thoughtful, lovers of good black music and with 0 f*cks to give, their attitude was the definition of class, and this song is an example of why.

Dali, Van, Picasso - Beenzino

Beenzino is one of the classiest and most creative artists in the Korean hip hop scene.

This is one of his songs that makes you feel like you're smelling really good and opening the door of your new luxurious apartment, with super white walls, a gleaming floor and minimalist decor.
