The Lisbon label's next release will land in July.
The next release on Lisbon's Príncipe label is the Tá Tipo Já Não Vamos Morrer EP from Tia Maria Produções.
Led by 20-year-old Puto Márcio, the Tia Maria crew also features three teenagers: 19-year-old DJ B.Boy, and DJ Télio and DJ Lycox, both 17. Unlike many Lisbon music crews, they're not bound by neighbourhood; Márcio comes from north Lisbon, while the other three come from the city's south. (Both Márcio and Lycox are both living in France these days.)
The EP's title translates as "It's like we won't die anymore." In keeping with Príncipe's M.O., the record is wilfully adventurous, combining furious percussion, marimba rhythms, colourful bleeps and vocal snippets. It'll come out in July on digital and vinyl formats.
