João Pais Filipe
João Pais Filipe is not the kind of musician who talks the talk — better yet, the Porto-based artist, who’s also an artisan behind its own and unique drum kit, walked the industrial, jazz and avant-garde walk to the point he found a space yet to be occupied by European scholars and their musical notations. In his one of a kind expression, the percussionist bends musical compositions to the point melodies and harmonies are the outcome of rhythmic relations instead of a tyrannic expression ruling over creation. Filipe designed a new direction in sound, which he calls ethno techno and where he manages constant dualities, between mechanic and organic, loops and repetitions, dancefloor explosions and circular mantras. Playing solo, João Pais Filipe takes on electronic dancefloor structures in a quite idiosyncratic way, channeling through his self-designed, handmade percussion kit each layer and idea, imbuing them with non-industrialized imperfections and rustic textures and setting a new path for the genre.

Future RNB artist GLORIA is a voice to remember.  Here to create brave new sounds. Blending emotive vocals and passionate lyricism with gritty UK pop and gothic hip-hop, Gloria invites listeners to step into her world, dominant, thought-provoking hedonism and the effects it has on our seemingly normal lives. Having supported Mykki Blanco, GAIKA, Flohio and Kojey Radical plus more across Europe previously in the first The Spectacular Empire Tour, she cemented her sound in front of new fans everywhere. GLORIA is brave to sit on the outskirts of musical conversion, it's an exciting year for this RNB outsider. GLORIA released her first single OUT which became a left-field RNB ballad success in January 2019 with great support from Radio 1Xtra, CLASH magazine, Nowness and Boiler Room's 4:3.  This year she is set to release 2 EPS, first to debut in Spring 2019 in close collaboration with producers AART (Gaika's Basic Volume) and Gaika.

Mário Costa, also known as Progressivu, is one afro-clubing DJ that is from an early age connected to the Enchufada music label. Mário Costa has always been a follower of the “afro-lisbon thing”, and with the aim of giving to any dancefloor the hot crossed afro and club rhythms, he was born as Progressivu. Progressivu already played in clubs like “Lux Frágil” e "Fabrique Milano", parties like “Arrastão”, “Enchufada Na Zona”, "Na Surra"  and other festivals like NOS ALIVE and ID No Limits.

Dj NinOo
Dj NinOo is one of the members of Firma do Txiga, along with Puto Anderson, K30 and Wayne. In 2017 the Lisbon based label Príncipe released their self-titled debut as a 3x 7’’ vinyl singles, one record for each producer, thus collecting the stylistic diversity of the authors. It established Dj NinOo as particularly romantic and elegant on his production work, being that on his Dj sets he does not shy away from showing his predilection for revolving between slow tempo Tarraxo jams and cruise paced House bangers.

Dj Narciso
Out of "Bagdad" (Rinchoa, Rio de Mouro, outskirts of Lisbon), in under 2 years, RS Produções have made a name for themselves with tight, across the board grooves, working melody and metal beats with equal proficiency. Dj Narciso is the leading producer, along with Nuno Beats, of the group who released their debut EP “Bagdad Style” on Príncipe at the tail end of 2018. He is also revered as the most irreprehensible DJ of the group, every and anytime focused and inspired to play out the collective’s original and fresh out the oven tracks, growing up post DJs Di Guetto (2006 - see Príncipe's timeline elsewhere on the web) and into the crew's now regular gigs at Príncipe's monthly residency (@Musicbox, Lisbon).
