Ok been a long time since we had the last one. I think this one was long overdue and has been held back for a few weeks nowww but has also been updated.
Let it be unleashed!
NU KUDURO – HARD ASS SESSIONS VOLUME II
Must confess I was really looking forward to this but man I’m a lil’ disappointed with the results. Not a touch on any of the Buraka Som Sistema, J Wow or established Angolan Kuduro stuff by the likes of Armado and releases by Akwaaba. Sounds pretty weak, diluted and European :-(
Grab the free tune, possibly the best out of the lot!

For Volume II in their Hard Ass Sessions series, out now, Portuguese label Enchufada asked four different producers to present their own takes kuduro, the hectic Angolan dance music that runs the road in Lisbon and has been popularised elsewhere by Buraka Som Sistema.
The only conditions were that the participants make tracks inspired by kuduro, and that they be between 135 and 142 BPM. Night Slugs’ Bok Bok, Zombies For Money, Douster and Italian producer Nik Sarno all contribute tracks – we’ve got the latter’s here for you to download free of charge.
As irresistible as candy-floss dipped in ice cream and ultimately about as nourishing, Sarno’s ‘Mana Wasa’ is party music pure and simple, made for instant impact. You can also watch the video below.
Daily Download: Nic Sarno – Mana Wasa
What better way to carry on than with these, which are just sublimmme!
The first track is the 2nd placed winner of the Jahcoozi remix competition and so BIG congrats to Grodio!
The second track is just awwwwwwesommme!
The third track downloads have expired and so if you ask Grodio nicely, I’m sure he’ll re-up somehwere.
Lovin’ this track, described as Dubstep but it ain’t! More like Latin Dub Ska!
BERT ON BEATS
BALTIMORE JOHN in da house!
For those of you not in the “know” Ghosryda is also SDP aka Vince The Prince. Just love this track, been out a little while now but still one of the best unofficial remixes I have heard of this tune.
100 downloads expired a loooong time ago but can still grab it from HERE
TONY AMADO – GODFATHER OF KUDURO
Here’s our boy Frederic Galliano with the Godfather of Kuduro in a video shoot in Paris. Only Tony could make Paris feel like Angola :-)
A great freebie here that takes many twists and turns, so much creativity in 7 minutes…listen & learn!
Ok, staying on the skweee tip, here’s a cute ;-) lil’ blend of skweee:
Ableton1st try mix:
1.Hint – One woman army (ft. Laura Vane)
2. Rigas Den Andre – No Brain No heart
3 SLA – Groznyi Nightlife
4. NDV – Scorchio
He’s gone a bit funky with this one, which ain’t no bad thang!
RAVERTON with EL DORADO
Got 2 say, got a lil’ weakness for Ke$ha cause the girl has attitude and I like that!
As for El Dorado, I like him too, he’s from Mexicooooo!
