Boomkat product review for:

batida - Alegria EP

Soundway keep up with the outernational new skool on a pair of Angolan/Portuguese kuduro-meets-Congolese guitar grooves. The clipped technoid undertow and lithe instrumental licks of 'Alegria' beg to be partied with, whilst Beat Laden gives a steamier, chunkier remix of 'Puxa' for the shufflers and Maga Bo gets loose and frisky with the polyrhythmic shake of his 'Cuka' remix.
