MC Lan Essentials

After moving to São Paulo as a child, MC Lan immersed himself in the city’s funk scene, becoming a leading figure of the ‘spicy funk’ movement that emerged in the early ’10s, as artists matched catchy breakbeats and dancehall grooves with slapstick sex jokes and erotic puns. The infectious breaks and terse bass on “Rabetão” made the song one of Brazil’s most streamed in 2017, while “Menina” uses snare riddims and Auto-Tuned crooning for a vibrant reggaeton jam. Lan’s recent shift towards more trap sounds is reflected in the mumbled vocals and dense bass of “Tic Tac”.
