Enchufada is a record label on a mission. Empowered by a highly contagious rhythmic virus incubated at tropical temperatures, we aim to contribute to this unstoppable pandemic that is changing the face of modern electronic dance music by introducing some much needed ethnic and festive flavor into the mix.
From our headquarters in Lisbon, the city where the African, South-American and European continents meet to eat, drink and dance the night away, the Buraka Som Sistema founding members João ‘Branko’ Barbosa and Kalaf Ângelo decided to create a label back in 2004, to act as a dynamic and creative platform from which some of the heaviest records and parties this side of the equator were born. Looking back at the title of Buraka Som Sistema’s 2006 debut EP, ‘From Buraka To The World’, it’s kind of inevitable to take it as a prophecy of sorts.
From helping to usher in a new age of Lusophone electronic music by releasing several records from upcoming Portuguese producers, to challenging international artists and musicians to give their own take on the kuduro phenomenon on the Hard Ass Sessions EP series – which eventually grew and became a full-fledged musical residency in Lisbon’s number one club, Lux – to curating festival stages and incessantly touring the globe, we now urge you to join us on our mission to take this global-ghetto-bass-world-weird-music revolution to every corner of the world, where every night a crowd goes wild is another battle fought and won for the celebration of life.
