Alma Do Meu Pai (Soul of My Father) is DJ Firmeza’s first solo record on Príncipe, a six-track album which demonstrates his unique rhythmic talents and is a tribute to his late father. His music, like much of that on the Lisbon based Principe Discos label, is Afro Portuguese club music, music strongly influenced by the kuduro and batida rhythms of the former Portuguese colony of Angola, yet taken into new and innovative realms by a legion of talented young producers, including the likes of DJ Marfox, DJ Nigga Fox, and Niagara.
It drops on the 16th of October. Be quick. More information here.
