Principe Discos is on form again, following excellent debut EPs from DJ Marfox and DJ Nigga Fox. Here they issue eight more tracks from the bairros of Lisbon, giving Blacksea Não Maya crew and Piquenos DJs Do Guetto a side apiece. Their music—referred to as batida, literally meaning ‘beat’—distills Angolan and other African and Western genres into functional rhythm tracks. Manufactured for DJ sets, using basic software, it could almost be a form of grime transposed via Salman Rushdie’s idea of a tropical London.
Aside from lacings of astringent synth, B.N.M.’s music is bare bones: electronic drums and a bombardment of sampled hand percussion, spurred on by minimal, chanted vocals. P.D.D.G. are more tuneful—incorporating flute, accordion and synthesized brass—but no less hard-hitting. The effect is more laid back but equally propulsive.
