  • Description A lot changed since Buraka introduced kuduro to the world. Since then, J-WOW has challenged producers from around the world to reinterpret this phenomenon, resulting in a successful compilation series called 'Hard Ass Sessions'. The highlights of 3 years of digital releases were handpicked by J-WOW and compiled on CD, serving as the ultimate guide of kuduro's ever changing universe. Taking advantage of Buraka Som Sistema's introduction of kuduro as part of the global musical landscape, J-WOW quickly understood it was meant to last. As the percussive madness imported from Luanda began informing beatmakers and producers all over the globe, people started reimagining it and giving it new forms and purposes. They cross-bred it with house, techno, dubstep and the list goes on: it became a very strong influence for producers who like to see sweaty bodies on the dance floor. It was inevitable. J-WOW started recruiting some of his favorite producers from around the globe and challenged them to reinterpret the kuduro phenomenon in their own unique ways. Artists like Bok Bok, Douster, Seiji, Zombies For Money or Canblaster - among many others - heeded his call and came forth with the most eclectic, weird, crazy and awesome blend of pumped-up percussive bangers that shot the kuduro genre to Outer Space and back. Three years and six volumes later we bring you this full-fledged compilation, featuring J-WOW's personal favorites of the series, hand-picked to give you the best possible experience inside the Hard Ass universe.
