388 – Xinobi
This week we welcome Bruno Cardoso aka Xinobi, a Portuguese grown-up-kid obsessed with music. He’s part of a generation that grew up within the music-blog eruption fueled by Do It Yourself ethics. Xinobi’s influences are as diverse as his record collection consequently his productions are eclectic and self-freshened as it’s not easy not to get surprised every time he releases something. Although you can simply label it as Disco / House / Electro / Techno, the truth is that there is a unique watermark on his sound. Together with his friend and work-partner Moullinex he gave birth to the still-growing-influent Discotexas, a Record Label that, with the help from the newcomers Mr. Mitsuhirato and Lazydisco, is getting more and more followers and admirers and is stepping further to a respectable dimension of scene-credibility. We’ve been big fans of Xinobi for some time and we are very excited he’s done this superb mix for us at Data Transmission, so sit back and enjoy…
A collection of my favorite and most played tracks at this time. Also, a feature of my new release, with the song Cacao, out the ep Spend the Night, and a still secret Moullinex song that I’m in love with. Ops, I forgot the 10 words rule. What’s your personal favourite track on it? The first one, Doc Daneeka – Walk on In. What’s the special ingredient in this mix? Good music. What’s the best gig you’ve played recently? Last month I played in Basel, club Garage, I think it was really special. Also, the mini Tour in Turkey with Moullinex (Cue Club in Istanbul and Kite in Ankara) was unforgettable. And, I have to tell, this Skateboard event I was really affraid of, because when I was a young skater I couldn’t care less about dance music, and I thought the kids could go bored at me. I was wrong. What have you got coming up? An album, finally, right after summer. Can’t wait. And finally, do you have a special message for our readers? Stay beautiful.
