Tribal

Príncipe, 2017
P018

Rogerio Brandão a.k.a. DJ Nigga Fox took the world by surprise back in 2014 with his incredible tribalistic productions that made him some sort of a legend. Last year he headlined a Boiler Room party in Lisbon and set the bar really fucking high.

«15 Barras» is a one sided 12″ that features only one song and still keeps the same primal and hypnotic sound. The song is a mix of afro-house and tribal with strokes of distant voices, acid bass lines and plenty to experience during the 15 minute ride.

Honest Jon’s Records, 2017
HJP84

Mater producer Shackleton wasted no time and returned after just 6 months to deliver one more punch to his already extensive catalogue.

It’s not the first time that Shackleton and Vengeance Tenfold have collaborated as they were pretty active 5-6 years ago. Both producers are crafty veterans and on this record they explore background choirs(“Spheric Ghost/Fear The Crown”) and spoken word(“Five Demiurgic Options“) and dub(“Dive Into The Grave”). Overall the album is a mix of dark ambient, tribal and experimental sounds. This is a crazy listen.

TAL, 2017
TAL002EP

Ogoya Nengo and The Dodo Women’s Group released «On Mande» early last year via TAL, a full-length record comprised of new African folk recordings from Siaya County, Kenya.

The TAL label starts the year with 4 brand new remixes from personal favourites Lena Willikens, Tolouse Low Trax, Don’t Dj and Orson. A fine and incredible collection of new percussion twists and dub vibes while trying to not take control over the already hypnotic Kenyan sound.
