about

TUGALIFE is a Portuguese producer living in London. Connected to the sound system culture since he was a youth, TUGALIFE spun reggae records in the DJ booths of the Portuguese underground, before moving to Her Majesty's homeland in 2007. There he’s shared stages with local heroes in some of South London’s legendary venues from the Old Kent Road to Brixton and beyond.

His debut recording is on 1980, a label he founded alongside his old friend from Porto Nave Mae and is a true mixtape in cassette format. On the tape, he opens the doors on his daily life, with trademark samples from VHS and digging sessions in obscure dusty basements while telling us stories of his days, from full English breakfasts, basketball courts, excursions to charity shops and trips to Cornwall. TUGALIFE’s kick and snare style combines vocal elements and contrasting ethereal melodies, in a stop/start rhythmical style - a sort of slow grime. All topped with the typical taste of cassette tapes and the crackle of vinyl.

Kids is direct, innocent and full of character. It takes us to the places that we always wanted to visit, especially when submerged in our daily routine. TUGALIFE is a conductor who leads us to wherever our imagination wants to go.
