Gatupreto – Distino Di Nos Vida

Gatupreto release their sophomore “Distino Di Nos Vida” on TINK! Music! The duo from Lisbon’s hinterland return with a second round of their impeccable, futuristic theory on modern club music after the acclaimed “Modo Di Trabadja” EP, released in 2015. The tropical taste of Cabo Verde, the cool of that Lisbon dance floor fusionism, the appeal of classic vibes. Tracks too dark and twisted to be called “Afro”, too sexy and melodic to be called “Techno”, too smart and freaky to be called “House” and too cool and mature to be called “Kuduro”, it is simply Gatupreto.
On the A side “I Became Me”, deep afro dub with a killer sub bass and endless echoes, starring Portuguese soul and hip hop legend NBC as guest vocalist and a remix by afro Dutch master and fellow TINK! artist Philou Louzolo – who turns “I Became Me” into an irresistible deep house with african undertones.
On the flip side, the dark dramatic stomping tracks “Afrowerk” and “Gatu Di Noti”, the first an eerie, irresistible peak time banger, and the later a stormer with sounds from natural Africa, harpy acid lines and an off kilter beat.
