“A gorgeous blend of deep interesting sounds, with a little oldschool flavour.” Mizz Ruby
Oporto’s newest record label 1980 bursts into the scene with the 5-track ‘Your Woman’ EP by London-based duo Unfixed & Broken.
As they took their first steps as musicians in the 90s Oporto hip-hop scene, which led them to discover the fast-paced beats of jungle and drum&bass as Hi Fidel Cartel, it’s now the hybrid sounds of house and bass music that the prolific duo of Pedro Maurício and Miguel Tavares present to the world as Unfixed & Broken.
Their keen ear for danceable breaks, bouncy basslines and melodic synthwork is fully represented in their latest work ‘Your Woman EP’, a collection of four original club-oriented tracks, complemented by a remix via Shcuro, a rising star among the Lisbon techno scene. As you hit play and the beats of Your Woman, I Just Want 2, Skuncaine and It Has Happened start rolling, you’ll instantly recognise elements of house, techno and the always evolving bass music scene, reflecting their own far-reaching musical influences and love of hybrid dance tracks, which create a laid-back and sensual vibe tailor-made for the coming summer months.
1980’s very first record not only presents a new label to the world but also a fresh project from a veteran production team, accompanied by a killer remix from one of the most promising artists from the Portuguese underground.
