Here’s a little taster of what to expect from the forthcoming Ep via this Promo Mix which blends elements of House, Kuduro, Afro, Zouk, Fodencia, Tarraxinha and Tribal music. These tracks have an awesome energy in common and also a unique outlook on the new sound that is being created in Portugal right at this moment.
This EP consists of 8 official tracks that will be available in all the digital stores worldwide and 4 Bonus tracks that we’ll be giving away for free. It takes in some older, more experienced producers with some newer, younger talent. We are pretty sure everyone will agree that this is one of the liveliest Bass scenes in Europe right now.
The mix showcases everything that has had us gripped in the Portuguese Bass scene for a while now. From slowed-down-to-super-funky Zouk Bass to up-tempo tribal drum computer sounds. Raw African vibes that we know and love from the grimy Kuduro mp3’s we’ve been playing the last 5 years contrasted with polished sounds which take the scene to another level with slick girly samples and a new take on a trap beat with Afrobeat percussion. Add to that the raw Fodencia and Future Tarraxo vybz and you have another layer to the yet unexplored Portuguese Bass Underground. All these songs are about driving percussion that make you want to cut it loose on a dance floor.
We have not disclosed a tracklist yet as we will be revealing who all these truly amazing Artists are on a daily basis every day for the next 12 days. Find out who the first one is later tonight and in the meantime blast this mix and share these sounds far & wide. Support this exciting new movement.
More info coming soon.
