  5. Lisbon based Batida (AKA Pedro Coquenão) is back with his Afro-house inspired single ‘Pobre e Rico’. Taken from his upcoming album ‘Dois’, the single features samples from a rare Afrobeat groove by Angolan legend Matadidi Mário and lines from the first Angolan movie made back in the 1970s.

    In 2012 Batida’s explosive self-titled debut came out on Soundway Records. Mixing the syncopated rhythms of Kuduro with elements of 1970s Semba, Pedro Coquenão won fans for an album that “demanded movement” (The Line of Best Fit) and “gave a view of the old and new, the West and Africa.” (The Guardian)

    Inspired by the multicultural hotbed of his home city of Lisbon and trips to Nairobi and Luanda, the new album ‘Dois’ is set for release through Soundway Records on 29th September. Recorded in his own garage-studio over a two-year period, ‘Dois’ features a host of special guests including Spoek Mathambo, Francois and The Atlas Mountains and Duncan Lloyd (Maximo Park).

  9. The Doors - The End

  10. The last month of March we saw the small band from Maryland, Future Islands having a big moment on the David Letterman show. Internet nowadays is putting the small bands in a very good position, the video of that performance had 1.8 million views and 7653 shares just on Youtube. This impact was significant because appeared on television offcourse, but after that moment on the Letterman show the internet made it’s magic. They weren’t a band with a big following, but now they have more 60 shows scheduled for US, Europe and Australia. 

    The small bands that we look up on the internet, are not a secret anymore, they are acessible to everyone. Problably the moment when you are discovering a new band in the Soundcloud, thousands of people are listening that music also. The moment when you read about one band in Pitchfork, they are already a recognised band. It doesn’t mean that these bands sell a lot of records and have stadium tours, It means that the internet made them big. Some of these bands are not big sellers, but they are definitely internet sensations.
