Angolan / Portuguese Batida (aka Pedro Coquenão) returns with a new single following on from his debut LP released earlier in the year.
On the A-side thumping bass lines collide head on with 1970s Angolan music legend Carlos Lamartine. One of Angola’s most influential musicians Carlos Lamartine began putting music out in the late 1950s and became increasingly political during the early 1970s as Angola struggled to gain its independence. The remix came about when Coquenão was finishing his record with Portuguese producer Beat Laden who created the original loop for Pedro to build an arrangement around. Done as a tribute to ‘Kota’ Carlos Lamartine the remix got the seal of approval from the man himself.
The B-side features a beefed up remix of album track ‘Yumbala’ by London based producer A.J.Holmes & The Hackney Empire. ”
