Description

Strands of Afro-House, Kuduro, Benga, Semba, samples from old Angolan movies and Afrobeat tracks, African MCs and musicians from all over the world are all deftly mixed together by Pedro Coquen�o!Inspired by the multicultural hotbed of his home city of Lisbon and trips to Nairobi and Luanda, �Dois� was predominately produced in his own garage-studio over a two-year period.

In 2012 Batida�s explosive self-titled debut came out on Soundway Records. Mixing the syncopated rhythms of Kuduro with elements of 1970s Semba and Congolese-influenced guitar licks, Pedro Coquen�o won fans for an album that �demanded movement� (The Line of Best Fit) and �gave a view of the old and new, the West and Africa.� (The Guardian)

Much of the remix and sampling spirit from the first record remains but �Dois� also features live instrumentation along with a host of different guests.

English, Portuguese, Quimbundo and Zulu languages all feature on �Luxo� with Spoek Mathambo (South Africa) & his crew contributing the lyrics together with Angolan MC Sacerdote and a guitar riff by Duncan Lloyd (Maximo Park). On 'C�u' Coquen�o pushes things in a deeper direction, dis-assembling and reforming elements of the Francois & The Atlas Mountains studio sessions of the track 'Les Plus Beaux' .
