Buraka Som Sistema 'Do Me Now ft. Yadi (Castro Remix)' [Premiere]

Stream our premiere of British producer Castro's remix of Buraka Som Sistema's "Do Me Now" alongside Yadi.


Buraka Som Sistema's third studio album Buraka, which dropped a couple months ago, featured a collection of tracks that expanded on the group's haywire zouk bass and kuduro-influenced electronic productions (see: "Vuvuzela (Carnival)" and "Stoopid"). The Lisbon-based group is now readying the release of Buraka Remixes, a 6-track EP that'll include reworkings from a varied crew of Enchufada affiliate beatmakers like JSTJR, Copia Doble Systema, The Clerk, Robs & Duke and KKing Kong. Today we're premiering the remix EP's opening track "Do Me Now," which was given a thumping, deep low-end remake by British producer Castro who warps the original's kizomba-leaning beats & London singer Yadi's vocals into a jolting, vivid synth production. Stream the track and see the full tracklist for the Buraka Remixes EP, and download the release by signing up to Enchufada's newsletter below.

Listen to Femi Kuti's New Song 'As We Struggle Everyday'

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."

Femi Kuti shares his new single, "As We Struggle Everyday," the latest drop from the upcoming double album Legacy +, a joint endeavor with his son Made Kuti.

"As We Struggle Everyday" is a politically-charged afrobeat tune about people having the voting power to hold their 'leaders' accountable, but often failing to do so. Throughout the song, Femi sings "As we struggle everyday We try to find a better way See these leaders wey suppose jail Na him my people dem dey hail."

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."

Legacy +, which is due out February 5 from Partisan Records, includes a full album by Femi titled Stop The Hate and an album by his son, Made, titled For(e)ward. The pair have previously shared the singles "Pà Pá Pà" and "Your Enemy" off the upcoming release.
