well, I was just doing a search for any new kuduro on bandcamp, and I came across this
On their soundcloud and promo clip on their youtube account, i learned that they met because he made beats and was looking for a Portuguese vocalist.
I don’t really think it’s kuduro…it’s probably only 130 bpm, and it’s pretty sparse in the drums…But I still totally like it.
This sound is pretty hot…its got the progressive and bassline elements of Buraka Som Sistema, but it doesn’t have as much in common with real kuduro…it’s probably closer to UK funky, with her rapping like a Brazilian…But it’s waaay darker than anything UK funky…This has a real warehouse quality.
Anyways, here’s the one video they have posted on their youtube…it’s a promo video where they are playing some really slammin stuff to a very small crowd…hopefully when the EP comes out next month, everyone gets it and thinks they are super cool, and they can put up a video of a more crazy crowd…I would have been going nuts a bit, probably…
NEXT DAY UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
I listened to their mixtape last night and it’s GREAT…what so much moombahton is missing is a host, or whatever. All these styles on this mix benefit so much from this addition. Its a pretty slammin mix…I really hope these guys blow up a bit.
