A lot of the kuduro/tarraxinha/kizomba coming out of Lisbon these days is extremely raw, but Fatigado takes that loose, lo-fi digital attitude to its logical extreme, crafting dance-forward tracks that sound like they're rolling down a hill in an aluminum can (in the best way possible). Little is known about Fatigado, but based on the handful of tracks on his SoundCloud, he trends towards the four-on-the-floor side, eschewing the less linear rhythms of the likes of DJ Nigga Fox and DJ Firmeza in favor of sparse, martial drum patterns that seem to itch and scratch across the surface of the track.
'Sanzala' is Fatigado's best effort to date, combining a horror film synth line with a husky drum loop that seems to eat up all the space in a room when played very, very loud. In a sense, Fatigado's sound is the kuduro analogue to the L.I.E.S. sound, and no matter your opinion in the New York label, the approach sounds damn good. -
