Audio: Jess & Crabbe's Kuduro Compilation 'Bazzerk'


DJ duo Jess & Crabbe team up with Geneva-based Mental Groove Records to dig up this collection of rare and exclusive kuduro rhythms. The tracks in Bazzerk - African Digital Dance span the raw dancefloor genre's lifeline, from its late 80's Angolan birth to the various Portuguese, French, and South-American offshoots its since created. Cabo Snoop, Batida, and Zaza Twins are all featured in the compilation, along with an eclectic list of known and unknown kuduro acts.
