Radio Nova says:
The Lisbon producer joined forces with Angolan rapper Ikonoklasta for an extraordinary, furious, dancing, but also militant project. "VaiVai", the first track released by the excellent label Beating Heart, imposes the IKOQWE style a forceful statement served by several Angolan rhythms and contemporary electronics.

BBC 6 Music Gilles Peterson: “There’s certain types of music that come out of Portugal (...) All of this is sort of linked together for me by this one producer who goes by the name of Batida. It’s just on another level in terms of how he presents his show, how he approaches his music making, whether he is DJing or performing live, or adding visuals, philosophically just how he goes about his business.”

Written and produced by Batida and Ikonoklasta
