If there is a group that embodies all the transformations that ocurred in Portugal – and in the Western world – it’s them, through music and aesthetics, where everything is untamable, in construction, plural. – Vítor Belanciano
Six years after the release of the prophetic ‘From Buraka To The World’, kuduro kingpins Buraka Som Sistema invite everyone to revisit the discography that made them into one of the most cherished electronic groups around the world. From that first EP that lit up the fuse to the global-ghetto-bass-world-weird music revolution back in 2006, to the global consecration of Angolan kuduro via a group of Lisbon beatmakers in ‘Black Diamond’ and the evolution of this groundbreaking sound in ‘Komba’, the band who made us sweat on dark dancefloors and well-lit arenas will also be showing us fresh remixes and rare tunes, thus creating the definitive Buraka encyclopedia.
This special collector’s edition will be released on December 3rd and will include the debut EP ‘From Buraka To The World‘ (2006), the ‘Black Diamond‘ (2008) and ‘Komba‘ (2011) albums, and also the the new ‘R3W1ND – Mambos Raros’, a collection of rarities, edits and remixes which includes previously unreleased tunes, new versions of the classic Buraka tracks and brand new remixes by producers such as Julio Bashmore, MastikSoul, Caspa or Hot Chip, effectively turning this deluxe box set into a must-have collector’s item.
