DJ and production troop Buraka Som Sistema covers Neneh Cherry's classic girl-power tunes "Buffalo Stance" for a very special compilation effort. To celebrate its 50th birthday, shoemaker Dr. Martins invited 10 up and coming artists to cover "10 cult classics" with accompanying videos produced by 10 up and coming directors. Included on the compilation are also The Noisettes, N.A.S.A, Duke Spirit and Verbal.
This Buraka Som Sistema is one of my favorites of the bunch. The group consists of producers Lil’ John, Riot, Conductor and MC Kalaf, but count amongst their ranks an extended family of dancers and MCs from around the globe. Described as a leading force in the "global ghetto-funk revolution," Buraka Som Sistema maintains the quality of Neneh Cherry's spunky original but infuses it with their own unique, totally fun sound that packs plenty of street-cred.
