Add Zouk Bass to the growing list of EDM genres. That’s right. Zouk. Bass. Originating in Portugal, this genre combines traditional Latin music with modern electronic beats, producing a fusion that simultaneously reminds the listener of moombahton and slow Latin push. Sound ridiculous enough to you yet? Honestly, I think this is the greatest thing to happen since trap got big. Except that this genre may have a bit more staying power because of its classic roots. Yeah, I realize how nutty this sounds. Just give the music a listen below. Buraka Som Sistema is a leader in the genre.


Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 introduced me to the world of electronic music, and ever since, it’s been a huge part of my life. I’m currently a philosophy student at UCSB, but music and shows are my passion. Thanks to EJ, I hope to share the magic of music with anyone interested.
