Challenging conventions with Enchufada on Talking Heads for Purple Sneakers Radio
Eradicating the parameters of conventional dance music, Portugal’s Enchufada is widening the ears of the penchant with their open-invitation to global electronica.
A label birthed from the rhythmic virus of the Kuduro namesake, Buraka Som Siesta founding members João “Branko” Barbosa and Kalaf Angelo brought the Lusophone label to life in 2006 as a result of a need to expose the electronic music climate to their mission; that being the openness of developing a similarity to the uptempo, energetic resonance with global dance music in a sense to welcome punters with an open mind and an open heart.
As a result, the Hard Ass Sessions EP series came to fruition, soon developing into an influential club residency at the iconic Lux in Lisbon – the same town in which Enchufada was born. Evolving into the curation of festival stage takeovers and world renown tours, the entity has perpetuated into an influential brand on a global scale; dropping releases from the likes of Astronomar, T.WILLIAMS, Damaia, ATLAS, Fizzy, Cityboy and Changa Letal – to name a few.
An iconic and innovative label, keep up to date with Enchufada via their WEBSITE.
