After holding our tongue for the last few weeks, it’s finally time to announce Enchufada‘s takeover of one of the most emblematic venues of Oporto. We’re talking about Casa da Música, a privileged place to interact with new musical languages, which resumes its Optimus Clubbing electronic nights with Enchufada acting as curator, and Buraka Som Sistema, Branko, DJ Marfox, Diamond Bass, Nave Mãe and KKing Kong representing the most tropical side of lusophone dance music, on April 20.
The young Lisbon representative of the moombahton scene KKing Kong kickstarts this Enchufada takeover at 22h00 with his trademark slow and sexy selections, bridging the gap between latin rhythms and contemporary club music. Following the starry-eyed youngster we’ll have Oporto-based DJ Nave Mãe at 23h00, taking listeners on a sonic voyage through the best that the UK underground has to offer.
At 23h30 the headliners Buraka Som Sistema take the main stage in full-band format to revisit the iconic songs of ‘Black Diamond’ and ‘Komba’, which made them one of the biggest Portuguese acts worldwide, but also to give the Oporto crowd a fresh taste of the new tracks that are brewing inside the studio.
Back to the DJ sets, the London-based Lisbon producer Diamond Bass brings over the freshest hybrids of bass-inflected club music and African rhythms, a formula that will also be explored by DJ Marfox‘s mutant kuduro antics, as he take the speakers by storm with the tunes from his new Enchufada EP ‘Subliminar’ at 00h00.
To end this night that will move Oporto a little bit closer to the Equator line we’ll have the always surprising selections of Branko, the Buraka Som Sistema founding member formerly known as J-WOW, who also takes the opportunity to showcase his brand new material which will be released in mixtape format also in April.
So come closer and join Enchufada in this celebration of life that will fill Casa da Música with moving sweaty bodies, in communion with the all-powerful beat, because dancing is always the best remedy.
