Much of the music released via Principe is rough ‘n’ ready. While still wildly frenetic, Marfox’s productions are more polished and pumped with soundsystem-dominating kick than tracks made by his Portugese peers.

‘Quente’ opens with the snake-charmed ‘2985-2686’ and bursts into staunch drum workout ‘Unsound’.

‘Tarraxo Everyday’ is a beautiful rendering of the Angolan genre and a moment of 100bpm respite, before the tempo rises with the exhilarating ‘Kassumbula’ and ‘Cobra Preta’. It closes with ‘B 18’ and its perfect storm of percussion.

Essential.
