After the phenomenal success of João Brasil´s summer anthem “L.O.V.E. Banana” feat. Lovefoxxx, the Brasilian ghetto-pop-maestro returns with another smasher: “Funk Do Iphone” feat. Marina Gasolina.

The second release by João Brasil on Man Recordings is about the mobile phone everybody loves to use these days, and Marina Gasolina – the former front woman for the infamous Bonde do Rolê and now proud solo artist – sings about the joys the funky phone is bringing.

Remixes come from a transnational team of hot remixers. Sheeqo Beat hails from Monterrey, Mexico and delivers a happy, club friendly, 3Ball remix. Coming from Brasils Amazon forest, star producer DJ Cremoso (who´s identity is still unknown), has put “Funk Do Iphone” in true Tecno Brega format and made a “Brega Do Iphone”. Last but not least there´s a remix by Moombathon renegade Sabo, who reworked the Iphone song into a deeper and more techno version of Moombathon, leaving the usual Moomba beat format for a more subtle groove.
The closing track of the EP is “Tropical Bomb”, João Brasil´s take on the “Lambada” theme, in true old school Rio De Janeiro funk fashion.

Who said that winter should be depressing? João Brasil´s music always makes the sun shine!
