Started when the first pandemic confinement hit, this is content that celebrates my past and informs a fresh vision forward. I have a fascination for subcultures, specially those with a close-knit relationship with leftfield and challenging music, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists. Moving between London and Porto. Curated by Jorge Sampaio.

With compositions steeped in rich guitar effects, the four extended instrumentals in this mini-album suggest communion and isolation, channeled through four island residents’ musical memorials: Sam Shepard, Adrian Borland, Peter Principle, and Florian Fricke. The ambiance across songs wavers between being majestically sad yet with a power mimicking hope, encouraging remembrance and honor without pain.
“Soundcheck (For Adrian Borland)” is a tribute to the late Adrian Borland, founder of the very underrated English post-punk band The Sound. This is nowhere near as emotionally raw as the underappreciated English singer it honors, but it surely hints at his music for the uninitiated. Adrian commited suicide in London on this day 22 years ago.
