The fearsome Buraka Som Sistema take over London's XOYO for a special one-off DJ/MC set. The group are in town for a recording session to work on material for their new album, due out after the summer.

Buraka Som Sistema consists of producers Lil' John, Riot and Conductor, with MC Kalaf but count amongst their ranks an extended family of dancers and MCs from around the globe. In just three years the group have released critically acclaimed debut album 'The Black Diamond', a slew of breakthrough singles, torched the blogosphere with their MIA featuring viral video 'Sound Of Kuduro', and wowed audiences all over the world with a mesmerizing dance-driven live show. No wonder Fader mag dubbed their live feast, "One of the most jaw-droppingly effusive club moments we've experienced."

Buraka have invited two acts they have been supporting in Lisbon through their own Enchufada label out to support them at XOYO. Come check out the new generation as they play in London for the first time.

Diamond Bass is already making a name for himself with DJ sets fusing traditional African and Brazilian sounds with house music. His remix of J-Wow's ‘Fogo’ got a lot of love from Clash Mag, XLR8R and Juno.

Paus are a horse of a different colour. A live act with a "Siamese drum kit" - two kits joined together with a shared bass drum, they make driving, heavy sounds with layered synths and compelling vocals. Fans of At the Drive In and Fugazi take note.

NYC label Trouble & Bass signing Zombies for Money round out the bill.

Catch this exclusive DJ/MC show and sets from special guests for the last time before they lock themselves in the studio again.
