Why You Should Pay Attention: With Radiohead digging on DJ Marfox’s Principe Discos label mate DJ Nigga Fox, the insular Lisbon scene is garnering attention worldwide – and its greatest ambassador is Marfox. Just 25, the man born Marlon Silva (to Portuguese immigrants from the island of São Tomé e Príncipe) embodies the ebullient sound of the Afro-Portuguese barrios. He began making music when he was 15 and soon his Fruity Loops-rendered tracks became the soundtracks to raucous parties for Angolan and Cape Verdean African immigrants on the outskirts of the capital city. Marfox’s influence in that community is such that the next generation of producers all use “-fox” in their names to pay tribute. Last month, he played his first show in New York City, slotted next to New Jersey club and Chicago footwork DJs, and he regularly plays in Europe alongside the likes of RP Boo and Kode9. His recent Lucky Punch EP on Lit City Trax furthers his sound, hinting at acid house, footwork and new sounds taken in from around the world.
