It feels apropos that Lisbon, Portugal’s Pedro Mauricio produces under the name King Kong. Intriguingly enough, David Heartbreak – the producer of the moombahton track that shares the producer’s pseudonym – created “moombahsoul,” the R&B-favoring moombah-offshoot for which Mauricio gained early renown. Only 22 years old, the Potuguese producer’s success has led him to Buraka Som Sistema‘s quickly rising Enchufada label, a move that has seen the tunesmith spread his sonic wings into more intense sounds including the frenetically paced Angola-based kuduro style. His latest free download blends the hardstyle of the Headhunterz‘ “MF Point of Perfection” into the range of 140 BPM African bass energy and vibes. High-octane, yet smooth production builds but never drops, and if this is a track made for a carnivale, then a carnival comparison is likely apropos. In feeling more like a never-ending ride on the spinning cups rather than an enormous roller coaster, it’s a whole different variety of exhilarating fun.
