This new clip for Buraka Som Sistema's synth-flanked kuduro banger "(We Stay) Up All Night" plays like a triptych of sorts, panning three notable scenarios: a shot of the Portuguese/Angolan producers spinning a Boiler Room-like party, LED-lit close-ups of featured singers Blaya and Roses Garbor, and a rotating cast of scantily clad girls (and muscular dudes) swerving in front of their living room webcams.
