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.
* after almost 20 years of making tracks with blaringly loud kicks. you tend to start producing with the other elements first to give yourself a break from the constant pounding of monitors at point blank range. following an analog filter shopping spree. i began working on a group of tracks where the low end was satisfied by the filtering. and realized these songs worked just fine without a bass drum. therefore this record is called “rareforms” since most of my other work consists of a kick drum and lots of loud effects. this record is dedicated to the brilliant synthesist and interpreter isao tomita. whose records always provide inspiration in the lab. also to master storyteller rod serling and his frequent collaborator bernard hermann. whose score for the hitchcock film vertigo i adapted through some midi processes and wavetable synthesis. then sent it through a 4-foot spring reverb.* - phil moffa
