Thanks to Okay Africa for supporting the new azonto MC ZULU and I teamed up for the second in the KAP series of combining dancehall vocalists with the future of African electronic music, this time making versions with Kuduro and Azonto flavored sounds.

After years of following these Angolan and Ghana based movements, us longtime collaborators and touring mates have decided to give the sound a go. Earlier this year we headlined the first night of Reggae On The River, and we did in August around that time. Dave Sharma from the NYC disco out fit, and old pal and amazing drummer did some percussion on the track too.

We’ve included a video of me making the tune and also a free download of the acapella  at 140 BPM for anybody to remix! Just send it to us!

Kush Remixes MC ZULU w/J.Boogie for OM records

J Boogie returns for the final single from his “Undercover” album with a tropical burner.

No Freedom is a nod to the classic sounds of Afrobeat with Pleasuremaker of Afrolicious laying down the funky groove for MC ZULU to deliver his message of political affairs. Kush Arora bangs out a remix for the club with some aggressive bass and 808 stompers. His mix of Kuduro, UK Funky and Dread Bass takes the horn section into outer space. This single is sure to create some sweat in the clubs over the summer!
