Audio: Manu Chao "Clandestino" (KJs Kuduro Remix)


Generation Bass posted this Kuduro remix of Manu Chao's "Clandestino" and brings his celebrated sound into a contemporary light. Right now every kid is listening to bass music and so they learn about legends through remixes. This particular remix is in the style of the spastic Angolan sound know as Kuduro, and in this case comes fully equipped with ballistic bass oscillation- "Marijuana Illegal" is the concept that seems to excite Manchester based remixer KJs the most. Kuduro is the product of a cross pollination of genres like hip-hop, house, and traditional Angolan rhythms, and is mostly made and consumed in its home in Angola, as well as Lisbon, Portugal due to the large population of Angolan immigrants. Here's to the past!
