Lisbon based record label PRÍNCIPE hits hard with DJ Lycox’s LYCOXERA EP and PT Musik’s Não Sou Perfeito 7” single.
The label flourishing in contemporary dance music pulling from suburbs and slums set themselves apart with their taste for new sounds that are breaking barriers and shaking legs.
On LYCOXERA the highly prolific Lycox delves deep into the dancefloor with traditional “latas” batida percussions, the growling of rainforest creatures, and the melodic getaways Lycox has built his name on. These tracks are packed and ready to punch, available only on wax and BandCamp where Dj’s and aficionados are sure to add to their harddrives in search of the tastemaker’s underground railroad.
PT Musik’s 3 track 7” is another story. The laid back synths and wide open ocean ambience are a sexier and smoother vibe altogether. Formerly known as Puto Tito whose early teenage productions include Carregando A Vida Atrás Das Costas, a minimalist batida hommage, is recognizably richer but still identifiable. The three tracks totalling 10 minutes, available digitally, roll by like a waking dream.
Both projects are available via Príncipe Discos.
