Maskarado – Kuduro House (Free Downloads)

Posted on 31 October 2011 by Leub

While observing the angolan house scene, I’ve stumbled upon Rapper Maskarado! The Kuduro Artist is one of the first who realised the full potential of the rising music style and started mixing his Kuduro Vocals with House Beats from angolan producers like DJ Djeff and Don Juan!
His biggest success so far is his collaboration with DJeff “Elegom Bounsa”, which got released worldwide by our friends from Akwaaba music!

On Maskarado’s soundcloud page I’ve found 5 free Tunes, I’d like to share with you! The Quality is a bit low (128kBit/s) but it’s good enough for your mp3-players, at least!

Nigga Fox- O meu Estilo

Posted on 17 September 2013 by Caballo

001

If you know Principe Discos, then you already are aware these guys are the real originators of what we now call zouk bass. ( But that is a totally different story)!

An absolute bombshell, ‘O Meu Estilo’ (‘My Style’) is Lisbon-based DJ Nigga Fox’s record debut. Real name Rogério Brandão, Nigga Fox came to our knowledge a few months ago, and we were immediately floored by what we were hearing.

Still in his early 20s, Rogério has already played in all sorts of the greater Lisbon clubs, while discreetly refining his own productions.

On this 12″ he presents parts of his unbelievably vast pallet.

As the title implies, there’s nothing quite like this, even in Lisbon ‘s ever more productive and creative beat-based music. He’s taken all sorts of lessons from local producers, as well as from the tracks coming in from Luanda , and has done his unnameable hybrid, informed by kuduro, afro-house, Angolan deep, tarraxinha, batida, and created some of the dopest, freshest music we’ve heard in years.

Whole set

Berlin Carnival 2013

Posted on 15 May 2013 by Marflix

Hurray, it’s about that time when Berlin hosts it’s biggest yearly event – the Carnival of Cultures. Originally a procession of the different cultures living in Berlin, it grew over the years and decades to the size we see today. Altough the event has over a million spectators, it still has not the size of Notting Hill Carnival where you sometimes need an hour just to get to the other side of the street.

KdK Yard/Escobar truck 2012

The “Karneval der Kulturen” has no Caribbean roots, unlike the diasporic Carnivals in London, New York, Miami or Toronto – and this is one of the few things which makes Berlin so unique: Soca trucks with people jumping up next to the Angola and Samba truck, followed by Kurdish moms, a Squaredance Cowboy group or a local youth project.

No doubt the main event is the big parade on Sunday, starting Hermannplatz, moving down Hasenheide to Yorkstrasse. The parade starts at 12 am, the last truck usually reaches Yorksstrasse after 9pm. There’s also a street party from Thur till Sun with several stages (African stage, Latin America stage etc) going down in Kreuzberg near Zossenerstr / Hallesches Tor.

Lusotronics

Besides a whole lot of Soca- and Dancehall-Parties this year we are especially looking forward to Lusotronics, a two-day festival dedicated to the urban digital music of the Portuguese-speaking (lusophonic) world, brought to you by Man Recordings.

The musical styles from Angola, Brasil, Mozambique and Portugal are a staple amongst Tropical Bass listeners and artists – the whole genre is deeply influenced by Baile Funk, Kuduro, Angolan Afro-House, Kizomba, Tecnobrega or Funana.

lusotronics

To quote the Lusotronics website:

“Produced on cheap digital instruments, these genres were born in the shanty towns of megalopolises such as Rio De Janeiro, Luanda, Maputo, Belém or Lisbon and are rapidly distributed worlwide through the Internet. A situation which is in stark contrast to the pre-Internet-age in which these countries considered themselves “peripheral“, with little access to the global pop and culture events. But since Portugal´s former colonies are now online, audio visual information, music and dance styles circulate in unprecendentend velocity around the world, reaching publics beyond language and space barriers. The results of this development are adapted and re-contextualised in the cities of the “first world“ with Lisbon as it´s main hub.”

Well said. Let me just add two words: Zouk Bass!

Curated by Daniel Haaksman the festival on Saturday and Sunday not only brings you a huge line-up with household names like Edu K, Bonde do Role, Batida, DJ Edgar, Bbrave, Titica, DJ Marfox, Gato Preto and more, there will also be lectures and and a movie programme. Perfect to get totally immersed in the lusophonic soundscapes that are predominant from Rio to Luanda.

Saturday, 18th & Sunday 19th, Club Gretchen, see lusotronics.com for timetable and more infos

Maskarado is a familiar name for anybody paying attention to Angolan house and kuduro.
Akwaaaba is dropping 2 freebies!!

He’s the go-to MC for many of the best crossover kuduro-house tracks out there – starting with the massive Angolan hit Elegom Bounsa, produced by DJ Djeff, unavoidable Angolan afrohouse artist whom we had the pleasure of releasing a couple of years ago. Monami is only the latest in a string of Luandan hits propelling Maskardo to the helm of Angolan music. Monami pay attention.

Kuduro’s Ikonoklasta needs HELP! Please share!

Posted on 14 July 2012 by Caballo


Tropicalbass needs the help of people who love music and positive resistance, and the help we are asking is just to share the story of a political/musical activist in Angola, Kuduro’s mc Ikonoklasta who is actively involved in the student movement which is fighting to restore democracy locally.

Batida – Cuka feat.Ikonoklasta (English Subtitled) from Fazuma on Vimeo.

Luaty aka Ikonoklasta spoke out against the government during one of his shows, he urged the crowd to attend an anti-government rally, and ever since he s been beaten up, arrested, his house was broken into, his girlfriend kidnapped, his whole family terrorized with anonymous death threats etc.

It was THAT BAD that HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH even posted about it ! (LINK)
On June 11 he flew into Lisboa to join the Portuguese Kuduro group Batida for their European tour. He was arrested at the airport, the Angolan secret service planted in excess of 1kg of cocaine in his luggage. It’s highly improbable that he will serve any time, as it was even clear to the Portuguese customs officers that it was a set up, but he s yet to stand trial.

This is the video revealing details (portuguese):I

Get a free tune of him and La Vai Maria
