How and where was the mix recorded?
This mix was recorded at home with the Pioneer DDJ-WeGO controller.
Can you tell us about the idea behind the mix?
The idea was to promote almost all the tracks of the three EPs that I’ve released to date, and to promote the fourth one, which is coming out in April.
How would you describe your music to someone who had never heard it?
It’s 100% dancing and vibrant music, somewhere between house and techno, at 140 BPM. It has short and dynamic variations, which easily makes any dance floor sweat—it is natural and hot. (Mind you, when I say “natural” it is with the clear purpose of letting you know that 99% of this music is produced on one of the most criticized software programs, Fruity Loops, and that 99% of the people that are making this music in Lisbon have no formal musical training).
Who are your favourite new Lisbon producers?
I don’t have one specific favourite, I like a lot of them. Whenever I find they have their own identity, I then forward them to the Príncipe guys so that they listen to their music and from that point on help make the dream come true for those producers and DJs, which is to have their story put down to wax and be recognized for the excellent music that he or them are making.
What are you up to next?
In terms of releases, I’m about to have my new EP out soon on NYC’s Lit City Tracks, but I’m also working on a new one for later in the year for Príncipe. In terms of live performances, this year took off quite well: I was in Berlin and London, and there’s hope to play more abroad, in Europe, in the United States, Japan. Let’s wait for this fourth EP to come out in April— hopefully it gives me even more exposure worldwide so that I can continue to show my music.
