Portugal really has no idea just how much talent it has pouring out of that country atm. There’s a new & alternative (mainly net based) underground, many producers with African heritage, and very few people are paying any attention to it outside of the usual names gaining some deserved press coverage.
There’s a whole new underbelly and I just can’t keep up with it, I find a few new names every day. Some, I’m keeping locked for future stuff and others I just haven’t got around to shedding any light on yet. Yes, some of the stuff is still raw and needs a lot of work but the potential and ideas are there and it’s mesmerizing.
Here’s another pretty decent prospect, Landim aka Hugo Monteiro, taking in Ghetto Zouk vybz, a kind of more melodic loungey side of Tarraxo.
