Zakee Kuduro

Philly's Zakee Kuduro makes another level, another world beats thats flipping me out. One part Angolan stutterbeat maelstrom, one part RATM noise attack, one part sweet siren melodies from Ghanaian vocalist Anbuley.

From the Janka Nabay (= always awesome) drop on the intro, Sane Eba has been rattling around my brain like a bass injected wild dog. Signed to Green Owl he's currently on production duties for M.I.A., Rye Rye, Theophilus London and more. Zakee's been making music in Ghana, check out his experiences in this interview with Fiftyonefiftyone.

He's also got a furious Buraka Som Sistema remix floating around out there. Here is Zakee and Anbuley throwing it down live for Dante Fried Chicken.
