Buraka Som Sistema – Hangover (BaBaBa)

Posted on 02 May 2011 by Jelka


Brandnew video for Buraka Som Sistema’s latest production called “Hangover (BaBaBa)”. The tune, a collaboration with Vienna’s Stereotyp, sports the signature Buraka sound, combining the feel of Kuduro with genre-bending, quite futuristic instrumental soundscapes – but the video! It’s animated gif aesthetics are just pure awesomeness!

According to the group the catchy ‘BaBaBa’ hookline originated when the they were in Rangel ‘City’ in Luanda, Angola, visiting some of their favourite Kuduro producers including DJ Znobia. Buraka’s Kalaf Ângelo remembers that Znobia played them “one of his tracks featuring Nacobeta, a local MC, where he used this hook and it immediately got our attention! We then used it in some of our early shows and the crowd loved it because of its simplicity and raw energy. While working on the new album, the beat we produced with Stereotyp had that same energy so it made perfect sense to bring it back for the chorus and close the cycle.”

The “Hangover (BaBaBa)” EP will be out on June 6th on Buraka’s home label Enchufada, including remixes from Swedish house hero Tony Senghore and newer names Swick and Oui’ Wack. The single precedes their new album, “Komba”, due later this year.
