DJ Castro does covers of Angolan House music with his voice and a water bottle

From Wikipedia:

Kuduro (or kuduru) is a type of music and dance originally developed in Angola in the 1980s. It is characterized as uptempo, energetic, and danceable. Kuduro began in Luanda, Angola in the late 1980s. Initially, producers sampled traditional carnival music like soca and zouk from the Caribbean, and also semba from Angola and laid this around a fast 4/4 beat.

One of my DJ friends posted this up last week and said "this kid goes harder than most of the acts I've booked this year"; he'll be happy to have a track list :) (As am I!)

Saw Marfox here in LA last month... it was so much fun!

Thanks for posting up!

This is so good. Thanks for posting! Also is it just me or did they add some echo or reverb onto his mic about halfway through?

If he can do this much with his voice and an empty bottle, he deserves a real mixer and laptop.

mroben: they definitely did add some reverb in the middle
