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.

Kambas Remixturam features reworks from Octa Push, NaZaretHMakafula, DJ Ride, Octapush and others. We highly recommend the highly infectious Circuito Feixado remix of "Yumbala."
