Batida- Yumbala- from Ghetto Bassquake

Posted on 30 September 2011 by Caballo

Kuduro of the Future!!
Ghetto Bassquake releases a massive EP called Yumbala from Angolan/Portuguese Batida aka DJ Mpula


Batida is DJ Mpula’s vision, a multitalented producer-performer-video maker-radio DJ and under this guise, with contributions from likeminded artists, is making some of the most inspired African urban street music around.

After their enormous debut single on Ghetto Bassquake, musician, DJ, & band leader of The Hackney Empire, A.J. Holmes, has teamed up with his band for this remix, enlisting collaborator and guitarist, Folo Graff, who toured with legendary 60′s Sierra Leonean High Life outfit, The S.E. Rogie Band, bringing out the bouncing Palm wine sounds of East London via West Africa.
