Audio: DJ Djeff & Maskarado 'Elegom Bounsa (Los Carlos Kuduro Bootleg)'

[embed width="560"][/embed]

Suriname/Dutch DJ Los Carlos takes the acapella from DJ Djeff & Maskarado's massive club batida "Elegom Bounsa" and injects it with an almost exclusively percussion-based new school kuduro beat. In a sit down with Akwaaba, Los Carlos spoke about his fascination with the Angolan genre: "kuduro...inspires me a lot. I like the purity of the African style music. My parents used to listen to Soca music when I was growing up. Because of my Suriname roots, rythmic music has always been a special thing in my life." If you're not familiar with the original version of the track (you should be), catch the Ho Chi Fu-directed music video above. Stream and download Los Carlos' Kuduro Bootleg below.
