A mix of samba, swing and rock-'n'-roll characterizes the musical style of the group. In the beginning of their career, when asked by a foreign journalist what kind of sound they made, the band found the perfect definition: "Brazilian batucada with a rock-'n'-roll pressure" — they promptly answered. Their first album, entitled "Astronauta Tupy" (Dubas/Warner) was released in 1997 and featured guest stars Ney Matogrosso, Fernanda Abreu, Lenine and Arícia Mess. Tracks like Máquina de Escrever (Mathilda Kóvak), Tudo Vale a Pena (Pedro Luís and Fernanda Abreu) and Soul (Pedro Luís) were among its highlights.

In 1999, they released É Tudo 1 Real, produced by Liminha, with artistic direction by Tom Capone. The album included the songs Rap do Real (Rodrigo Maranhão and Pedro Luís), Menina Bonita (Pedro Luís, Alexandre Brasil and Rodrigo Cabelo), Cidade em Movimento (Pedro Luís, Roberto Valente and Rodrigo Cabelo) and Mapa da Mina (Pedro Luís e Suely Mesquita), among others.

Two years later, they released Zona e Progresso for the MP,B label, with distribution by Universal Music. The album included Batalha Naval (Pedro Luis and Bianca Ramoneda), Morbidance (Lula Queiroga, Felipe Falcão and Lucky Luciano), Zona e Progresso (Suely Mesquita, Pedro Luis and Arícia Mess), Do Leme ao Leblon (Carlos Negreiros) and Saudação ao Toco Preto (Candeia).

In 2004, the group released Vagabundo, a collaborative work with singer Ney Matogrosso which was released as a live album a year later and also became a DVD set. That same year, PLAP and Monobloco received the Rival Award for Career Achievement. Aside from their own albums, characterized by a strong rhythmic language coupled with lively bass grooves, PLAP have been lending their sound to renowned artists such as Lenine (Na Pressão), Adriana Calcanhotto (Maritmo), Ney Matogrosso (Olhos de Farol), Carlos Malta and Pife Muderno, and Japanese drummer Takashi Numazawa.
