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.

Currently, at least 8000 more have been left displaced, fleeing to other parts of the country and attempting to seek asylum in Tanzania.
