It’s not dance music. It’s just music. Despite being intensely active in that world, Moullinex, Portuguese DJ, producer and musician Luis Clara Gomes’s alter-ego aims to be – and succeeds at it – much more than a mere machine designed to make people dance. Not that he’s not good at getting crowds to move their bodies, it’s just that he navigates through various genres and contexts equally well, be it the dancefloor, the sofa or the street.
Mike El Nite
Born and raised in Lisbon, rapper and dj combines the skills gainedthroughout his unpredictable career to convey messages somewhere between euphoria and despair, with a strong tendency towards ironyapplied to serious subjects accompanied by beats, basses, synths and samples . His crusade continues whether or not he was Mike El Nite, the justice.
"Let me introduce you To my side of the funk Classy, Nasty, Messy, Sassy And that's how I began. I am Freak, I'm Da Chick, it is time for you to know me. Your mom will think i'm pretty, And yes i'm pretty lovely".
This is pretty much how Da Chick's world can be portrayed. No need and no time for bulshit about what she's been doing, her record collection and her major influences. She tells us her blood is a mix of rhythm, colours and energy, and you can take her word for it.
Portuguese visual artist and illustrator Kruella d'Enfer (1988) has been delighting us with her enchanted visual world, evoking a deep sense of wonder with the fantastical, benevolent creatures that inhabit its dark and mysterious corners, be they mystical wolves or magical foxes, bewitching tigers or shamanistic deer. At ease painting both large-scale murals and intimist works on paper and canvas, her use of contrasting colours and geometric shapes brings age-old legends and myths to life, composing fantastic stories with a universal appeal. She has been exhibiting her work in solo and collective shows since 2010.
My photography work is purely based on my surroundings. Im inspired by shapes, colours and people that define the everyday life of wherever i am at the moment. Being a graphic designer composition plays a key role in my work as i seek the perfect framing for each and every shot i try to capture. For me the story of a photo lies within the frozen frame, more specifically how its framed and composed by the photographer. As a story teller and a photographer my stories are frozen frames of my everyday life, travels and happenchances as the way i see it.
AkaCorleone é Pedro Campiche (n. 1985), um artista visual com ascendência portuguesa e suíça que iniciou o seu percurso como writer de graffiti no submundo da sua Lisboa natal. Desenhador compulsivo e obcecado desde novo por todas as coisas gráficas e visuais, estudou artes e licenciou-se em Design e Comunicação Visual em 2007. Após trabalhar como designer gráfico em ateliers durante alguns anos desiludiu-se de vez com esta área, tendo decidido trabalhar como ilustrador freelance em complemento com o desenvolvimento da sua actividade artística. Em 2011, fundou, com a artista Kruella d'Enfer, a STEPPIN STONE – uma plataforma para a ilustração e criatividade visual, onde desempenha as funções de manager e director de arte. No campo das artes visuais é hoje conhecido pela destreza com que joga com o uso de cores, tipografia, personagens e formas depuradas que combina de forma hábil de modo a produzir composições apelativas imbuídas de originalidade e um humor abrangente. Tem apresentado o seu trabalho em exposições individuais e colectivas desde 2010.

In love with the sea and sport. I try to surf a better wave every day, spend more time in the water, on the beach, share waves with friends, go on a new trip, meet new cultures and people. This is my way of life.
Competition ? It s part of evolution. Test my limits, overcome myself, achieve what I never reached, win, lose, but still don t give up.
