CRACK: Tracks Of The Year 2015


Words by Duncan Harrison

Alma Do Meu Pai translates roughly as ‘soul of my father’ – this track and its accompanying EP were dedicated to Firmenza’s late parent. Having picked up the tricks of the trade from Batida godfather DJ Nervoso, the 20-year-old producer turned in this focused mantra-like opus for Príncipe. Twitching polyrhythmic beat patterns stretching across six minutes of spirited energy, this was Firmenza’s first proper release for the imprint and it proved that we’ll be talking about Lisbon’s outer-regions for many years to come.
