Generation Bass presents: SaBBo – Voodoo Space Time EP.
Over the last couple of years we’ve always tried to bring you the latest sounds from all over the globe. Hot stuff, like Moombahton, Juke, Kuduro, Cumbia, Transnational Dubstep, South African House, Tuki Bass and all that good stuff. Recently, another great genre/sub-genre? (We aren’t all decided yet) popped up to be added to this list: “ZOUK BASS”!
Introduced by the might Buraka Son Sistema during their live Boiler Room Session in February 2013, Zouk Bass is like a modern souped-up Bass version of Tarraxinha but still, it is not quite Tarraxinha!
Hence why “We call it Zouk Bass…a brand new sound” as Mc Kalaf of Buraka Som Sistema infamously declared.
One of the originators is the Cape Verde born but Portuguese based producer Deejay Kuimba whose track “Tarraxo Na Parede” opened up Buraka’s Boiler Room set and now that sound is taking the net and the globe by storm.
One of the least likely places you’d expect this to pop up would of course be the Middle East, but then again, it’s the home to one of the most talented and multi-faced producers we know, SaBBo! He has been working on perfecting his Zouk Bass skills and is ready to drop this onto the world. SaBBo’s joints have the same great laidback vibe as the original “Tarraxo Na Parede” and he must be THE guy to bring this genre further.
This sound is so fresh that it doesn’t have those set perimeters yet that screw with any genre once it gets out there. SaBBo gives his all on these 4 cuts that rival the original “Tarraxo Na Parede” track for intensity and groove. Well programmed, deep deep drums and those thin crawly synths on top that sound like bugs buzzin’ round your head. That real tropical flavour in the percussion as well. The world better get ready for this, cause this is a big one. This will be taking over dance floors near you REAL soon!
And yes, we verily believe this is the First Zouk Bass EP in the world ahahaha but none of this could have happened were it not for Deejay Kuimba who made THE track and Buraka Som Sistema who played THE track to kick start a new revolution:

Check out the great video by Kutiman:
The video is directed by musician, producer and YouTube sensation Kutiman, a longtime musical partner of SaBBo.
The unexpected success of the groundbreaking Thru-You project in 2009 has put Kutiman on the forefront of the Internet music world. An online music video project mixed from samples of unrelated amateur YouTube music videos, Thru-You was chosen by Time Magazine as one of the 50 Best Inventions of 2009. While taking a break from finishing his next official album or working on his famous mash up creations, Kutiman enjoys creating video clips for some of his fellow musicians.
This video (shot, directed and edited by Kutiman) features the talented Zina, from the prestigious Batsheva Dance Ensemble. This dark, enchanting video captures SaBBo’s talking Doll track’s wild energy.
