New Hyperdub signee Nazar has termed the type of music he makes ‘Rough Kuduro’. What he means by this is that he uses a souped-up version of Kuduro, a dance music of his native Angola, to both critique and process the legacy of the country’s 27-year-long civil war. This sonic aesthetic makes for intense listening on his Enclave EP. Cuts like the title track, ‘Konvoy’ and ‘Warning Shots’ bring together the propulsive rhythms common to the Principe label with abrasive club sonics more commonly found on an imprint like Fade To Mind.

‘Enclave’ is the first Hyperdub EP by Angolan producer Nazar, whose musical world centres around the extreme violence, injustice and omnipresence of a repressive state during and after the 27-year Angolan civil war, simultaneously exploring the hope, resilience and pride in a country torn apart by conflict.
