Príncipe Discos to release LP by DJ Firmeza

Príncipe Discos has, quite simply, laid waste to the rest of the dance music scene this year (as reductive as that sounds, it’s kinda true). Nidia Minaj, DJ Nigga Fox, CDM, Niagara: the Lisbon label has been hemorrhaging non-stop hot shit, and now you can add DJ Firmeza to that veritable stack.

Alma Do Meu Pai isn’t just the usual kinetic deliverance you’d expect of a Príncipe record — it’s also a spiritual one, what with Firmeza dedicating the release to the “Soul Of My Father.” Basically, there’s a lot of personal waging at play here, and it makes for some truly captivating music. The title track, streaming below, is a downright hypnotic riddim, which is some feat given its extended runtime. Promising to set itself apart from “notions of kuduro or afrohouse,” Alma Do Meu Pai may well cap off Príncipe’s 2015 in fine style. Unless, of course, they manage to sneak out more fire before the year is up. Don’t bet against it.

Alma Do Meu Pai drops October 16.
