Join Electronic Beats TV here for our latest sonic exploration, this time diving into the Lisbon Ghetto sound which is rooted and influenced by the African island São Tomé and Príncipe among other African countries. In this video Marlon Silva, better known to most as DJ Marfox takes us through his old hood where he still has his studio. Silva is a regular artist on the Principe imprint and a figurehead for the genre in Lisbon who has not only been influential in it’s continual rise, but has played a vital role in supporting up and coming acts in the community through his studio to help drive things beyond the city. Here we discuss the merging of African-influenced dance music with house and techno, his production techniques and the history across the past decade of this unique sound.
