 Fast-rising Lisbon-based DJ/producer PEDRO has shared details
of his long-awaited debut album, 'Da Linha', which releases on March
20 via Enchufada. First teased with the release of bubbling lead single
'Calores' in January, 'Da Linha' crowns a defining breakthrough three
years for PEDRO that has seen him establish himself as one of
Portugal's most vibrant and exciting new-school producers. His debut
EP, 'EP 'Damaia' (2017) - named after the suburb of Lisbon he was
born in - immediately signposted a bright, borderless club sound rooted
in experimentation, which has since been best emphasised by 2019
releases including the Buraka Som Sistema-sampling 'Rapazes' and a
breathless collaboration with Nigerian MC, Magugu ('Too Much'), both
of which feature on the LP tracklist. First inspired by his older brother,
who would introduce PEDRO to the latest electronic music coming out
of Portugal, he still references DJ Rolando's 'Knights Of Jaguar' as a
memorable early touch point - a record he still credits with influencing
the melodies he writes to this day. Living and growing up in Damaia,
PEDRO also went to school with friends of Angolan, Cape Verdean,
Brazilian and Mozambican descent, exposing him to a whole patchwork
of new sounds and genres like kuduro and kizomba from a very young
age. With such a rich and diverse musical upbringing, it is perhaps no
wonder that 'Da Linha' is bursting with energy and colour across all 10
tracks, melding together the hyper-specific sounds, instruments and
voices that have sound-tracked PEDRO's life so far. From the marching,
militant rhythm of 'Stuck On You' ft. standout Ghanaian MC, Bryte, to
the silky, bubblegum vocals and gloopy, earworm melodies of closing
track 'Para Ti' featuring Xcelencia, you'd be hard pushed to find a debut
record that captures a city so viscerally.
