Here’s a release that I’ve been waiting for (or rather: longing for) for quite some time: Lisbon-based collective and label Discotexas are releasing their “Forbidden Cuts” today. The EP features three tracks by Moullinex, Xinobi and Rockets. You should recall the latter from a post on these pages.
I can only speculate about the origins of the title but this is dangerously addictive stuff from a wonderful crew that is now making their way from the blogs to some of the coolest labels in dance music: While Moullinex is getting his full-length ready for Gomma, Xinobi’s “Day Off” is finally seeing a proper release on Work It Baby soon and Rockets debut 12″ is going to be released by Alavi’s RoXour!
It’s their love for details, the warmth in their tracks, awesome production, and – of course – their ability to make people dance that makes me want to proclaim a new genre right now. No more French touch, this is Portuguese house!
