DJ Danifox



Veteran-klubberen husker kanskje Principe Records’ fabelaktige labelkveld på by:Larm 2020, og vi er glade for å hente et av våre favorittnavn fra det portugisiske plateselskapet til 2024-utgaven: DJ Danifox. Det er umulig å forutsi noe som helst når den Lisboa-baserte DJen kommer til Oslo i september, annet enn at dansegulvgarantien sitter løst.


DJ Danifox, the son of Angolan parents, was born in Lisbon but moved to Leeds, in the UK, in 2014, around the time that he began making his first beats as a means of sheltering from family-related difficulties surrounding him. As his aesthetic began to take shape, coming from tarraxo, kuduro, and Lisbon ghetto, he connected with the Príncipe crew through his friend Deejay Ary, whom he collaborated with on 2016’s 'Dorme Bem’ track for the label’s Mambos Levis D’Outro Mundo comp. Since then Danifox has been touted as one of Príncipe’s rising names, acknowledged for his dancefloor cuts and playful vibes. After releasing his debut solo EP, A Long Walk, on Los Angeles’ Point Records, moving from kuduro to house and featuring his own vocals, he’s contributed 'Dark Hope’, a poignant closing title track, to Príncipe’s thrilling 32-track label compilation Verão Dark Hope.

Alongside Puto Márcio, Lycox, and BBoy, Danifox also forms the Tia Maria Produções crew, who released the follow up EP “Lei da Tia Maria” on Príncipe at the tail end of 2020. Summer 2022 saw the release of 'Dia Não Mata Dia', his long awaited solo debut on Príncipe, a superb volume showcasing his daring and distinct compositional and arrangements style in electronic dance music.

On April of 2023 his first proper LP titled Ansiedade was released on Príncipe, blessed with wide acclaim and affection across the board in dance culture and various kinds of end of year best of lists. Besides taking part in the super group O Ghettão alongside Dj Nigga Fox and Dj Firmeza, Dani has also been slaying behind the CDJs throughout the European independent cultural ecosystem.
