Lisbon-based online community radio station Rádio Quântica is launching a new festival called Ano 0.
Set to take place at Lisbon's Zé dos Bois Gallery and at ADAO in Barreiro from September 6th – 7th, Ano 0 is described as “the first Portuguese festival focused on the most avant-garde electronic scene through a queer and community perspective".
“I miss doing house stuff,” says Inês Borges Coutinho, laughing, a little frustrated. She’s not talking about music – thankfully, there’s lots of that. She literally misses being able to walk around her house.
In case you haven’t realised, we’re big fans of Violet here at DJ Mag HQ. Founder of one of our labels to watch for 2019, Naive, and a DJ/producer extraordinaire in her own right, she has in the past number of years become one of the most vital figures both in Lisbon’s scene and beyond.
Since launching in August 2018, we’ve been keeping a close eye on London’s All Centre.
Launched by TT label’s DJ Pitch, the imprint has so far released EPs from Simkin, Holloway and LES, with each boasting a robust percussive backbone with elements of UK Funky, bass and techno making for some dancefloor demolishing cuts.
