Ever since the start of our label Fatal Music we’ve had a close bond with Portugal. The DJs there gave our label a lot of support right from the start. Our close friend and Portugal’s leading female DJ, Miss Sheila, sent us one of her recent tracks called ‘The Freak Out’ earlier this year and we instantly loved it.
So what to expect? Deep grooves, dark voices and driving beats with that typical Portuguese tribal/tech sound. Jaimy did a great remix with his signature sound. His mix is funky but deep and rolling, a real groover.
