ITA Con il suo “O Meu Estilo”, DJ Nigga Fox ha mostrato un’entusiasmante cultura giovanile e sonora nutrita dalle aree urbane e suburbane della capitale portoghese.

EN With his “O Meu Estilo” 12” EP debut release in 2013, DJ Nigga Fox crashed the gates as part of Lisbon’s Principe Discos crew who have been showing an exciting youth and sonic culture nurtured out of the Portuguese capital urban and suburban areas into a EU widespread diaspora. His follow up on Príncipe in 2015, the extraordinary and next level 12” EP entitled “Noite e Dia”, had Resident Advisor praising “the four tracks [of the EP] are so bizarre and delirious they’re almost intimidating, and yet they’re exuberant in a way that could liberate dance floors.” In early 2017 he followed with the one sided 12” “15 Barras”, a soundtrack to an unrealized collaborative installation. The long form composition in it is a four-part movement of virulent acid, screeing strings and crowd noise unfolding over a seamless 15 minute arrangement, pushing his music to new conceptual limits.

His by now generous live curriculum includes thunderous performances at Sónar Barcelona and Roskilde Festival among other festivals, besides slaying the Berghain crowd on a mythical Janus night in Berlin’s techno cathedral or delivering epic performances out of Euroland such as at NAAFI Residencia at Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City or at MONA FOMA weekender Faux Mo in Hobart, Tasmania, as part of his debut East Asia and Oceania tour in early 2018.

His new EP, the magnus opus ‘Crânio’, was released last March 9th on Warp Records. Six tracks of shapeshifting dancefloor psychedelia, or as Phil Sherburne aptly introduced it for his Pitchfork review “for his first release on Warp, the batida and electronic musician puts forth his own meticulous, otherworldly sound and reconnects with the avant-dance spirit of the label’s early years.
