Hot hot band from Portugal. Buraka Som Sistema‘s genre is Kuduro, which is a sort of uptempo dance hall music from Angola. Unlike kwaito which is more housy and garagy, Kuduro is more hip hop sounding. And then there’s progressive kuduro, which is the European’s tendency to surpress and systemise the raw drum beats to a more mastered and studio sounding tune, turn it into a house structure and make it more friendly to DJs. Seems to me that’s the African version of Ghetto Tech. Peep the guest artistes that BSS has hooked up with, that includes Diplo and M.I.A.
