Full text is not currently available for this publication.


Call it batida, kuduro, Afro house, Lisbon bass: anyone with a keen ear for contemporary developments in global electronic dance music can't fail to have noticed the rise in popularity and influence of Lisbon-based DJs such as DJ Marfox, DJ Nervoso and Nidia Minaj. These DJs and producers are bringing the sound of the Lisbon projects to wider world via international club nights, festival appearances, recordings and remix projects for artists such as Panda Bear, Fever Ray and Elza Soares. This book uses the 2006 compilation DJs do Guetto as a prism for exploring this music's aesthetics and its roots in Lusophone Africa, its evolution in the immigrant communities of Lisbon and its journey from there to the world. The story is one of encounters: between people, sounds, neighborhoods, technologies and cultural contexts.
