It’s been relatively quiet around Príncipe Discos lately. So far, the Lisbon-based label revered for mixing house and techno with different sounds from the African diaspora, including Kuduro, Kizomba and Batida, has only released one 12-inch this year.
That’s set to change, however, as the label is readying a fresh dose of Afro-Portuguese ghetto funk from DJ Firmeza in the form of Ardeu. It’s a four-track EP due to hit shops on September 13. While you wait for the release date, listen to the hypnotic, siren-sporting rhythm track “Intenso”, below.
