What a crazy trip… This Star Wax issue represents our love-affair with Lisbon, we’ve put together 58 pages of passion and madness, focusing on the local electronic music & rare groove scenes, as well as our impressions of more traditional culture in the city. Star Wax #53 is available as a PDF for download, in English… We’ve included a comprehensive guide to the best record stores, as well as a list of our favorite Dj’s, promoters, clubs, bars and rooftop spots. The latest issue also features a jaw-dropping, special edition of our « rare wax » series, this time centered around the Portuguese language culture and artists, guided by Sebastião di Mar & Sol Records. We met with Dirk Niepoort for some serious wine talk. We also discuss music and documentary films with João Pedro Moreira. The graffiti section is no less essential, as are the featured interviews with heavy-hitters like carioca-guitarist-songwriter Pierre Aderne from Rua Das Pretas, Cigarra, Dj Ride, Dj Glue and Jorge Caiado, head honcho at Carpet & Snares. You’ll find record reviews and personal selections from those we met on our sun-filled visit. At the same time you can listen to the Star Wax SoundCloud Lisboa special playlist.
