Pedro Augusto, a producer raised in Leiria who spent the last decade and a half to create and compose in Oporto as Ghuna X, confesses to have arrived “to a limbo in terms of sonorous and rhythmic exploration” and decided to start a new journey.

Pedro Augusto, Ece Canli, Gonçalo Duarte and Miguel Ramos edited the first album, Toada, a collection of themes that are part of the Portuguese song’s roots, of names like José Afonso, Vitorino, GAC or Brigada Victor Jara, in a format connected to the experimental electronic, slow, dense, echoing, that knows to be soturn and also dreamy.

Isaura: “I Need Ya”

Read More

Isaura revealed to the public “I Need Ya“, the first single from his debut album, scheduled for release in the early months of 2018 and marking the beginning of a new phase in his career.

The song was written and composed by Isaura, and co-produced by the artist in partnership with Kking Kong. The video was produced and produced by Liliana Ramires.

According to Isaura: “Most of the time we know exactly what we need and we insist on looking where we know we are guaranteed not to find, I Need Ya talks about this vicious cycle that only we can dictate the end. Empty, brief, fleeting, futile, as if we were looking for something breathless, a sensation or someone who only lives during the day and who will never be there for you. I Need Ya is what we have lived with drunken and nameless loves; It is being numb, it is being asleep for life. ”

“The glass of water represents control and rationality; The possibility to choose, always. While the slightly ajar shutters, which will have continuity in the singles that will be extracted from this first disc, represent a finite world, a group of songs and sonority that make sense now and that expose another form of being of Isaura. However it is known at the outset that this work is temporary and does not imply continuity; Just as we all change hopelessly every second. This album will also be a result of several modifications from ‘Serendipity’ and the beginning of so many others. “
