Our next Urban Cosmonaut Radio artist is a tornado of visceral musical energy.

Felipe Torquato, otherwise known as Spaniol, is a Brazilian producer and founder of the infamous party series Sonido Trópico in Sao Paolo. His productions reflect a creative spirit stimulated since his time in a classical music conservatory at age 9, having been surrounded and influenced by Brazilian classical music, 70s psychedelic rock and Gigolo records from the early 2000s (no joke) for much of his life.

His music moves with rhythms that get your feet antsy, whirling up dance floors in playful bursts of melody, bouncing sounds and complex layers of cumbia-induced percussions. In the next episode of our Urban Cosmonaut Radio show, he has selected music that intertwines Brazilian folk, contemporary eclectica and ethno slow house in a colourful rainbow of music.

*** We’re happy to follow him wherever he takes us, shakes us, breaks us ***
