Batida 'Kambas Remixturam' [LP Download]

Batida, the Portuguese/Angolan producer responsible for last year's amazing self-titled debut has released a free full length remix version of the album for download


Batida is one of our favorite artists on the scene right now, so any word of new music from the Portuguese/Angolan producer Pedro Coqueñao (mastermind behind the project) is welcomed news. If you head over to Batida's Facebook page, our homie has provided us with a full remixed version his self titled debut from last year — which happened to be one of our favorite albums of 2012. The release comes off the heels of Batida's intriguing performance for Boiler Room TV last month in Paris, which we urge you to proceed and peep right away. Kambas Remixturam features reworks from Octa Push, NaZaretHMakafula, DJ Ride, Octapush and others. We highly recommend the highly infectious Circuito Feixado remix of "Yumbala." Hit the link below to 'Like' Batida on Facebook and grab the free download and get a taste in the video below.
