By virtual global standards Buraka Som Sistema is the main group responsible for the tidal-wave of kuduro sounds falling on Western ears in the mid ’00s. We’ve been keeping close tabs on the Portuguese producers for some time and have been well-joyed to see them evolve from their initial “Sound of Kuduro” banger (which featured M.I.A. and DJ Znobia) to their more recent Komba LP mutations. The crew very recently dropped a phenomenal, tweaked-out 50-minute set at underground electronic party Boiler Room‘s offshoot location in Lisbon. Watch the full Buraka Som Sistema set below — which is heavy-packed with some kuduro, zouk bass, and tuki gems. Stream the podcast directly here.
