This is something and should really be what the bodies are dancing to in whatever place passes for Ibiza these days. ‘Yah!’ may sound fabulously unique but it takes direction from a whole genre of music known as Kudura (techno ‘hard ass’) which sprung from Angola in the 90’s. It’s influence has crept as far as Lisbon where Buraka Som Sistema are one of its prime proponents. Not sure whether an album of this material would be overly palatable but as a singular piece of music ‘Yah!’ is pretty exhilarating. I’d imagine it could pull a huge audience with drum n bass heads as well as old skool ravers looking for fresh thrills. Musical Youth with teeth. KD
