Cloonee’s Hellbent Records stays rooted in Brazil as rising Rio native bewav drops his ‘Baila Co.’ EP.

While only readying its third release, it’s clear that Cloonee’s newly-minted Hellbent Records imprint is set to become a go-to outlet for powerful cuts from exciting artists worldwide – with the first two EP’s already finding favour amongst a host of the scene’s biggest names. Next to join the family is Rio de Janeiro-based DJ, producer and label owner bewav, an emerging Brazilian catching some serious attention of late from the likes of Solardo and Classmatic. Delivering a two-piece combination of energy and flair, his ‘Baila Co.’ EP showcases his growing percussive sound with a pair of productions made for the dancefloor.


“‘Baila Co.’ is a special track. I wanted to do something with a vocal in Spanish with a lot of groove but with a more aggressive feel, and I believe I got it in this project. ‘About All On Me’ is one of my favourites. I’ve always been a big fan of a faster groove with a little more elements; the vocals mean a lot to me.” – bewav.

“The first time I played ‘Baila Co.’ I instantly signed the record the next day. The reaction it gets in a club is really special, and it’s always a get out of jail free card when you need to up the energy! To juxtapose that, the B side ‘All On Me’ is less of a statement of a song, but its groove and flow are infectious, so again, it became a go-to for me when I wanted to keep the crowd moving. Overall it’s a great all round package!” – Cloonee

A vibrant cut charged full of energy and vigour, fusing rich organic percussion amongst snaking low-ends and infectious Latin vocals, title track ‘Baila Co.’ delivers a no-nonsense, groove-fuelled trip made for big moments. On the flip, ‘All On Me’ harnesses further alluring vocal work amongst skittering drums and squelchy basslines to dive deep into the early hours.
