SONG OF THE DAY: MAKONGO – MAKONGO or ANGOLAN KUNG FU? (WE’RE IGNORANT!)   1 comment

Makongo

Makongo – Makongo (zshare)

It’s Friday and your mom suggested you listen to more kuduro, southern style hip hop and dubstep. Well, just between us and you, there is a way you can get all three into your ears just in time to make your mom happy for Father’s Day. Presenting: Makongo. They mix up a bunch of shit like Buraka Som Sistema (one of the chicks is actualy ex-Buraka) but use kuduro as a base. They have an album out now called Angolan Kung Fu. Plan B is known to have described this song as a cross between The Dream and kuduro.  It’s a good track to play in a set you want to be varied because it vacillates between the speed of kuduro and dubstep/southern hip hop. Plus the The Dream-like singing and the horns give it this epic feel like you’re on a mothafuckin boat! This more accessible kuduro is probably explained by the fact that these cats operate out of Lisbon now. This is kuduro that a dj can actually mix properly (it obeys conventional song structure!). Sometimes even Buraka can do zany shit at weird times that just throw you off.  Here’s the video (yeah they look like they are part of the Dark Side):
