Rob Da Bank, who's doing the John Peel show, just played some Brazilian funk (the genre of music played at the ultraviolent "funk balls" in Brazil, not related to James Brown or George Clinton). It sounded stylistically like Peaches or some European electroclash act.
Could it have been 'Favela Funk'? This is a genre emerging from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro - it's more tough 80s-style funk than James Brown or George Clinton, so it might be what you heard. I think there are a few compilations out.
