Audio: Batida "Yumbala (Nozinja's Shangaan Electro Remix)" - Exclusive DL!


Our friends over at Ghetto Bassquake have just released this single from Batida, the Angolan/Portuguese urban street music project of producer DJ Mpula. The original "Yumbala" boasts an energetic fusion of kuduro beats and 60s semba guitar samples with Luandan MCs Sacerdote and Dama Ivone of Circuito Feixado each dropping verses over the beat.

Nozinja's remix comes in the vein of South African electronic folk genre Shangaan electro — don't front like you already forgot about this new breakneck-speed dance style. As the people at GB put it, Nozinja's reworking features "bouncing marimba keys and pounding electronic drums; a totally unique Shangaan electro take on a kuduro track where two of Africa's most original dance styles collide on the dance floor with jaw-dropping results."

Grab an EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD of "Yumbala (Nozinja's Shangaan Electro Remix)." Stream the entire release below and buy Batida's "Yumbala" now from Ghetto Bassquake.
