So, how many people are ready to rock the house?
Trip hop band Gorillaz Gorillaz caused a commotion in the music business for their unique concept of a fictional universe with cartoon personas instead of "real members", and although that alone is pretty cool, their music was just as cool.
It's kinda funny that the humans behind the project have said that "Rock the house" is their least favorite track and shouldn't even have been on their album. Well, well, I've always had a thing for the underdogs anyway, but this track is just so good and can't be neglected.
The profusion of jazz and hip hop elements, with a bit of funk too, makes it perfect for our playlist.
The samples of John Dankworth's "Modesty Blaise" and the raps of Del the Funky Homosapien (damn, even his stage name is witty and fun) bring us back to the 1960's jazz and 1980's hip hop, but "Rock the house" is actually from a 2000's virtual band? Awesome.
If one thing is a little bit crazy and innovative, I might love it already. And if, besides that, the music is great, then it's just perfect.

About the curator: Ana Clara Ribeiro
Music, art and entertainment have always played a big role in the life of Ana Clara Ribeiro. She grew up in Gurupi (an inland city in Tocantins, the youngest State of Brazil), listening to all kinds of music, reading, writing, watching stuff and connecting them to her personal beliefs and other ideas she read about.
As she became a lawyer and a writer, all the topics to which she is constantly exposed continued to give her insights about life, people and the universe, through the lenses of art.
Nowadays, when she isn’t analyzing lawsuits or producing content about Law, Marketing, Business or Music, she is certainly doing something related to her various personal and professional projects, always to the sound of a playlist as eclectic as her life.
