The members of party-starting Portuguese outfit Buraka Som Sistema may have inadvertently become the poster children for kuduro, but even they openly admit that they're putting their own spin on the energetic Angolan sound. In that same spirit, last year the band's Enchufada label tweaked its Hard Ass Sessions series and began inviting producers from around the globe to cook up their own version of kuduro. Past participants have included Bok Bok, Toy Selectah, Douster, and Zombies for Money, and the latest installent includes efforts from Dubbel Dutch, Canblaster, Seiji, and more. The new EP will see wide release next week (impatient folks can cop it now exclusively through Juno), but in the meantime, take a listen to all four tracks below. And if you're looking for a fright, you can also check out the spooktacular video for Martelo vs. Canblaster's "Cannibal," which is posted underneath the audio player.
