Buraka Som Sistema Gets Remixed
- Words: Jennifer Marston
We've learned a lot about the sound of kuduro lately, thanks to Buraka Som Sistema. The Angolian form of music rose to prominence earlier this year, when the Lisbon, Portugal-based group released Black Diamond, and now we can't get enough of them.
Hence, some forthcoming remixes. BSS handed the track "IC19," off Black Diamond, over to XLR8R Artist to Watch Toy Selectah, Philly's DJ Sega, and Wales-based group Toadally Krossed Out for reworkings. Styles should be considerably varied for each track, and definitely different from the original version, also packaged with the release.
Mad Decent will unleash the single on May 26 (vinyl) and June 2 (digital).
