We were about to start a fight when we saw Buraka Som Sistema‘s exclusive mixtape over on Pitchfork, knowing we had our own in the mail, but then we listened to both and decided ours was better than theirs and, generally, more is better when it comes to BSS. Also, we are softening our stance on our competitors because it is time to heal this nation. So, download The FADER’s mix from Lisbon’s finest, then go get P4k’s (if you have to) and have a party.
Buraka Som Sistema’s new album Black Diamond snuck out in the US a minute ago, is ridiculous, and will be released in the UK next Tuesday, November 17th. Also, make sure to check out our story on the group from March 2008′s award-winning Africa Issue here. Tracklist after the jump.
