I really don’t believe in standing and watching DJ’s while they play. So the Boiler Room site is always difficult for me to visit. The Internet went crazy when the Buraka Som Sistema crew hopped on the decks in Lisbon some time last month at The Boiler Room. Super super super cool but sometimes it’s not good to jump on things immediately. I like for the sound to meet me in my own time.
Today in my part of the world there is a snow storm out and I just felt the need to heat things up inside. Right from the intro I can understand where the hype is coming from. Not that Buraka Som Sistema don’t deserve the love but you can truly feel it and that’s what is most important. Sometimes when things are the rage on the Internet the feeling gets diminished.
If you’re like me and prefer to dance to sounds like this you can get the mix through the Boiler Room site. Otherwise enjoy the video below:

Things have been a little slow around the Masala headquarters so far this year. 2012 was a big one and in the proper fashion 2013 continues to bring new opportunities and we continue to rise and take advantage of the goodness. We’ve still got love for the artists doing their thing for the sake of the influence of the sweet sweet vibes of the motherland. There is a lot coming from the ambassadors of the “Afro Electronic” sound, in fact anything with the Afro influence this year is sure to be pure fire. For me, some artists have been popping up left right and center and my first example is the latest video release from Seayou Records who represent Belgian/Ghanaian songstress Anbuley.
Her latest video for “M33ba” has basically jolted me back into action cos to discover this when it’s too late would be a sad sad situation. Anbuley delivers her idiosyncratic flavour to the sound of afro electro dance music and this is where the warm feelings begin to arise. Her deep gutteral vocals are enough to send chills down your back, her style…on point and her moves right on track. I’m always for girls and women doing their thing because as we all know female success is always a battle when you are in a male dominated profession. Anbuley shows signs of being a true power player who will go on to make make power moves and that’s what 2013 will be about…Power moving and power shaking!

Le funk s’est exporté partout dans le monde, les “paulistas” en ont créé leur propre interprétation, le “Funk Ostentação”.
On oublie la drogue, les putes et les guerres de gang, thèmes omniprésents dans le funk de Rio, pour faire place aux grosses voitures, aux marques américaines, à l’or et aux jolies filles.
L’équipe du blog Funk Na Caixa a tourné un documentaire sur ce “Funk Ostentatoire”, sortez vos fausses Oakley et vos berlines de luxe!
La bande son du documentaire est distribuée gratuitement sur le compte soundcloud du blog:

Titica revient encore une fois avec un nouveau morceau pas mal cool mélangeant kuduro et guitare congolaise.

So enjoy while it last:
