Kuduro Winter Fire
Its the new baile funk you know, blah blah blah....Well its not in my book but its still pretty fucking good. I tried to hold back on writing about Kuduro as everyone is doing it but I couldn't. Its too good. . .African techno, MCs and producers from Angola via Lisbon. These beats are ripping out of Portugal faster than Britney spears divorce papers. Its kind of more grimey and relentless than baile funk, less breakdowns and rave stabs, more squelching noises. The techno end of it is more apparent but alot more fun than a night out with Jeff Mills.
Currently spearheading the Kuduro world invasion is Buraka Som Sistema who are wicked and have made a funny video of themselves dancing about.
This banger has all the elements, a bouncing Kuduro Afro beat, vocoder vocals, old school techo bassline, dirty acid noises and African singing.

However hearing Oompa Loompas spit over Kuduro is nothing short of scary.
