Puto Márcio da Tia Maria regressa para o nosso aquecimento de fim de ano, junto com Firmeza e DJ Nigga Fox, que provavelmente tem passado tantos fins de semana noutras cidades como em Lisboa, durante 2014. Mas a casa é no Musicbox na baixa lisboeta.
Puto Márcio (founder of the Tia Maria crew) returns for our end-of-year heatwave, joined by Firmeza (more from him during 2015) and DJ Nigga Fox, who’s probably been spending as many weekends out of town as in Lisbon. It feels like home at Musicbox in downtown Lisbon.

Por ocasião da actuação de Maboku no Barbican em Londres, no dia 13.12.2014. Cliquem na imagem para ouvir.
Marking his performance at Just Jam’s Barbican takeover this Saturday. Click image to listen.
Maboku might come last on the flyer for the event, but he could be the night’s secret weapon. A Lisbon resident originally from Angola, he counts DJs Marfox, Niggafox and Lilocox (who he collaborates with under the name CDM) amongst his peers, and has released on the high-ranking Príncipe label. He’s also a regular fixture at Príncipe’s monthly club nights.
His mix is 40-minutes of tumbling drums, flute riffs, vocal earworms and more – if you’ve ever been swept away by kurudo, gqom, Barcadi house and similar flips of the traditional house template, you’ll be all over this.
