A prodigy of Afro-Lusitanian Portugal, currently living in Paris, he is one the most prominent figures of the revolutionary publisher Príncipe. Of all the figures arising from the life, culture and expression of this recent pancontinental portugueseness, he is one of the most talented in terms of relevance and sensibility for a grand melody and for the power that a good pop song (even if his are almost always instrumental) can have. On top of that, he is absolutely diabolical at working the rhythmic breaks of the various musical vocabularies he navigates (being in France gave him access to more readily available information regarding globalist culture than the neighborhoods of Lisbon and the South Bank could), capping it all off with his own vision of how to calibrate our trends in terms of audio compression in African-American pop, even if it has its roots “in the Congo”. During his latest national appearance at Galeria Zé dos Bois, he demonstrated how fruitful and magnetic he has become as a DJ, with relentless sequences of color, rhythm and pure energy, which didn’t lead to a new April 25th merely because there weren’t any carnations around nor AK-47s at hand. This absolute ace is bringing OUT.FEST 2018 to a close on the highest of notes.
