Soundway are proud to release the debut album from Batida, the brainchild of Angolan / Portuguese DJ Mpula aka Pedro Coquen�o. A distinctly modern and vibrant project with its feet firmly rooted in the past, Batida combine samples from old 1970s Angolan tracks with modern electronic dance music.
Being the first of a string of brand new projects for Soundway, this eponymous first album sees the label taking a slightly different direction in 2012 and beyond. Championed mostly for their work in un-earthing and re-releasing classic, rare and vintage tropical recordings, Soundway have started signing new acts that have drawn on and been inspired by the kind of music found on the label�s ground breaking compilations and re-issues.

What originally started out as a radio show designed to promote new African music has slowly evolved into a collaborative project crossing continents.

Whereas nearly all of kuduro (Angolan electronic music) has no links with its country�s musical heritage, it is deeply engrained in Batida�s music. Sampling tracks from 1970s Angola, Batida is a reinterpretation of Angola�s musical past, bringing it firmly into the modern day.
