Producer and DJ, Marfox is a downright urban, suburban and ghetto legend in Lisbon, as well as a renowned name on a worldwide network of dedicated seekers of new directions in electronic social music. Having also released on Lit City Trax, Warp Records and delivered commissioned remixes for artists such as tUnE-yArDs or Panda Bear, he is undoubtedly one of the figure-heads of the roster of Príncipe. He returned this year to the Lisbon based dance label with his new EP “Chapa Quente”, lauded by FACT Magazine as “practically perfect” or distinguished as “Album Of The Month” on Mixmag’s April issue. Marfox’s been playing live extensively the last couple of years in Europe and the UK, visits to the US, Moscow, Brazil and embarked last Summer on his first East Asia tour with stops on Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul and Shanghai.

Príncipe Discos has harboured a generation of voices from the barrios surrounding Lisbon, exposing the world to their explosive Afro-Porto mixture of Angolan styles like kuduro and tarraxinha and their raw energy. Despite the appeal that comes with any brand new sound, so far the label has remained truly independent. All Príncipe artwork is handled by one of the label’s four founders, Márcio Matos. All copies of each release are individually hand-painted and stencilled so that every copy is unique. The images are distinctly DIY – from the blotchy brickwork that adorned their first ever release to the ink curling and trailing off the canvas on 2015’s Soul Of My Father by DJ Firmenza. Márcio Matos will provide visuals for both DJ Maboku‘s and DJ Marfox‘ sets at Lunchmeat Festival 2018.
