Video: Zakee, Live Performance of "Spotlight"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


Known for his heavy Kuduro bass and deep, crunchy beats, Zakee reveals his softer side with this live performance of the sultry "Spotlight" at Brooklyn's Public Assembly from this past April for the Damn Zun iBomba Party.  We had the pleasure of linking with Zakee a few weeks ago, where he offered up a full album listening for his new record here at the OKA offices - needless to say there was no work done for hours, and everyone's neck was sore the next day from an overdose of the head nod.  We are chomping at the bit to get a hold of his new project which should be hitting the streets sometime in the near future, so stay tuned.  For now, enjoy the live show, above.  Video by Giovanni P Autran for GEMSNYC.COM.
