That teenage girls the world over draw inspiration from the force that is Nicki Minaj is a given. And many teens might even take to the mic thanks to her inimitable example. Yet the Portugal-bred, Bordeaux-based producer born Nídia Borges might be the only 18-year-old embracing her diva role model by applying truffle butter dexterity onto the beats themselves. Or “batida”, to use the parlance of Lisbon’s Príncipe imprint, who just released Minaj’s debut 12″. There’s a double-Dutch skip to “Puto Iuri”‘s snares but with a hitch to its steps, quickly tangled with a hand drum. An air horn bleets and the synths flare at the edges of the spare track, showing an assured if brief example of Minaj’s way around such a slippery beat.
