DJ Marfox Chapa Quente on LP

Marfox and Príncipe have come a long and transformative way since their debut with the appropriately titled EP Eu Sei Quem Sou in late 2011. The raw and more minimal sound of the producer's formative years has mutated into a complex web of influences and new sounds. His scope has enlarged and yet Marfox retains the most crucial quality: he does not forget his roots.

You will notice differences in such tracks as "Unsound" (reflecting the festival in Poland where things really started to heat up), with its metallic harshness and even the bright, shiny, retro-futurist "Tarraxo Everyday"; also, "Kassumbula" and "Cobra Preta" both display a similar kind of sci-fi dissonance you can't quite place a finger on.

Marfox's musical evolution has been a staggering and beautiful process to behold. More skills bring more thrills and the overall feel of "Chapa Quente" is that of a perpetual chase scene on a New Lisbon constantly reorganized by the pull of different cultures, something that resonates with Marfox's upbringing in the now demolished shantytown of Quinta da Vitória, where he came of age among neighbors who had emigrated from India, Pakistan, São Tomé e Príncipe or Cabo Verde, admittedly having informed his sound aesthetics and practice.

One stop only to catch some Sun ("Tarraxo Everyday") but all the rest runs faster than you and us. Godspeed.
