Video: Batida 'Ka Heueh ft. Ngongo' + LP Release

Batida aka DJ Mpula is the Angolan/Portuguese mind behind the semba-sampling "Yumbala" rhythm — one of our top tracks of last year. "Ka Heueh," a new concoction, came about as a sort of dare when Batida challenged MC Ngongo to add words to his instrumental. Watch the concert-footage clip for the new track below, filmed at Portugal's Festival Med. Batida is set to release his eponymous debut LP (cover art above) via Soundway Records.
