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.
