Forca Kuduro (2008)

Kuduro is a dance music style born and raised in Angola. It has a stripped down, hard hitting sound- a marriage of African rhythmic structures and house or techno, oftentimes at a breakneck tempo with a call-and-response type rapping vocal. The label to this excellent six track compilation is simply an iteration of the Angolan flag, which looks pretty badass (I'm not sure its okay to describe a flag this way, but how many flags out there have machetes on them?). And the vinyl itself is colored split black and red, which is undeniably badass!
