New Starburst Artist, Neryba
We are thrilled to welcome new artist Neryba to our roster of talented composers. Neryba (a.k.a. Nery Bauer) is a composer/producer from Criciúma, Brazil. Although he’s previously focused his fertile career in Acid Jazz and Electronica, he’s always been connected to other artists and genres, with his unique eclectic professional and personal background. Neryba’s current chillout pop project is infused with local spice of Brazilian rhythms and soundscapes. He is now starting to release some of this new material described as “Thievery Corporation by way of Jorge Ben Jor”. “A Beleza Dorme” pays homage to the traditions of samba, both rhythmically and lyrically, but with a modern lounge vibe…a mix of Brazilian swag with the chill out atmosphere of contemporary electronic music. 'Beauty sleeps,' the lyric goes, 'here, close to me.'
Mad props to Paul Messina for his outstanding sax work on this cut!

Featured Artist of the Month: Rapazzi
Johnny Cash meets Gangsta Rap meets Primus meets Jazz. The brainchild of a gifted Brazilian composer/producer, an American lyricist and a vocalists from Mexico, the first self titled Rapazzi album delivers hip, jazz infused beat generation exhortations on the meaning of life in the early 21st Century, but with an historical perspective dating back to the early Roman Empire. One fan commented “This is the coolest song I’ve heard so far on Broadjam. Johnny Cash plus the Neptunes plus Cake. Great lyrics?”
