Poté Blends Soca, Kuduro & Bass Music In His 'Voyeurism' EP For Enchufada

Stream young beatmaker Poté's debut EP for Enchufada, a blend of soca, kuduro & bass music styles.


St. Lucia-born, London-raised producer Poté recently dropped his two-track debut EP Voyeurism on Lisbon-based label Enchufada after having contributed tracks to their Upper Cuts download series. Poté's production blends the percussive energy of genres like soca and kuduro through bass music styles. Both tracks from his new EP are global dance floor bangers seeping with tropical percussion (as heard on "Karma") and disjointed beatwork ("Voyeurism"). Portugal has long been a center for global bass, a surrogate home away from Angola for kuduro, and Enchufada's been right in the middle of it. With Poté, the imprint continues to nail excellent global beats. Check out the Voyeurism EP below, it's already gained support from the likes of Toddla T, Plastician and B.Traits, and buy it now on iTunes and all other major online record outlets.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
