Homeboyz have given hits like “African Central Soul (Guitar Mix)” a specifically Angolan sound.

While their catchy drum tracks sound very familiar to European ears, the Homeboyz give the time-tested four-to-the-floor pattern a specifically Angolan accent. Sample shots, call and response, extended raps, polyrhythmic breaks, spare synth riffs and traditional-sounding motifs collide in hits such as “African Central Soul (Guitar Mix)” and “Matimba (Hard Remix),” which have spread like wildfire via the internet.
