Dj Lycox is one of the most talented and influential producers in the contemporary urban/club ecosystem sustained by the afro-diasporic rhizome. A wonderful mind and graceful spirit, born in Portugal of Angolan descent and currently based in Paris, he is also part of the Tia Maria Produções crew with whom he released the landmark ‘Tá Tipo Já Não Vamos Morrer’ EP in 2014 on Príncipe. His solo debut record arrived on Lisbon’s finest at the tail end of 2017, entitled ‘Sonhos & Pesadelos’.
Last year he shared his ‘Kizas do Ly’ EP, a beautiful rhythm & sounds psalm for Love, and this November a new one called ‚LYCOXERA‘, a surpassing collection of dancefloor bangers.
So far live highlights include enthralling sets at Berghain’s Säule, Paris’ Club Silencio, London’s XOYO, Unsound festival in Krakow, NOS Primavera Sound in Porto, 2019’s Cannes Festival Semaine de la Critique’s Opening party or Resident Advisor’s XFER weekender in Los Angeles and Mexico City.
