Premiere: Jorge Caiado - AP135

Premiere: Jorge Caiado – AP135
Jack Smith

It’s no secret that the Portuguese capital is one of Europe’s top destinations for electronic music in 2018. Lisboa Electronica Musiculture, Primavera Sound and now Nova Batida – whose inaugural weekend in September looks positively tantalising – are just some of many flying the flag for contemporary electronic music in the idyllic coastal town. But one constant that drives the sound forward all year round is Carpet & Snares, the record store specialising in house and techno run by region stalwart Jorge Caiado.

The label’s second release entitled Choices follows Andr√© Leiria’s excellent first, and once again channels timeless astral house a la Prescription and Leapfrog. Here we take a closer look the EP’s opener ‘AP135’ – a frankly gorgeous 6 minutes worth of lapping chords and skipping hats primed for mid-set groove-lock in the dance.

Another release from C&S that bridges the gap between style and substance with patience and drive.
