Riot – Keep On

Posted on 23 May 2013 by Caballo


Enchufada drops ‘Keep on’. A different take on ZoukBass, blending elements of Kizomba and Drum n bass and at the same time not being any.

After Branko kickstarted the Upper Cuts series with his stunning Njena Reddd Foxxx collaboration and Buraka Som Sistema contributed with the genre-defining Zouk Flute, now it’s time for another Buraka founding member to enter the series. We’re talking about Riot, the eclectic DJ and producer who started the global kuduro revolution with Branko and the rest of the crew, and is still turning heads on the Portuguese drum&bass and dubstep scene.

Since it was up to him to close the first Upper Cuts season in style, he decided to surprise everyone with a personal take on the fresh Zouk Bass genre by fusing slow Caribbean-influenced beats with the fast-paced rhythm of drum&bass. This unlikely blend has produced some amazing results and is already finding its way into the digital DJ bags of several prominent artists such as DJ Zinc, Toddla T, Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs, Dave Nada and Astronomar, among many others rushing to show support.
