Canadian artist/producer N.D.M.A. kicks off his summer with a collaboration from across the pond. Veteran Copenhagen streetwear brand City Fellaz summoned him to put together a mix to celebrate their North American expansion. Those that have been following N.D.M.A. may know that he's originally from Angola, then raised in Brazil. He used this mix titled "Don't Feed the Birds" as a way to showcase his musical tastes and talents as a producer, while at the same time shed light on Favela Funk music. Being new to Favela Funk myself I was a little hesitant when I read that in the description but it was totally the opposite from what I thought. He fused hip hop, electro, mombatoon, and some of his original productions which all gelled well with the tropical aura the brand wanted to portray.
With the success of his productions what many do not know is that producing and DJing is just a side project for N.D.M.A. He's first and foremost a experimental rapper/producer comparable to Theophilus London. City Fellaz has been doing their thing throughout Europe for over a decade with features in Hypebeast, Highsnobiety, and stock listing in stores around the world. Stream and download the mix below and look out for more from both of these creative camps.
