For fifteen years now, Bruno Cardoso, alias Xinobi, has been feeding his XXL-sized passion for music on a daily basis: he composes, produces, remixes, welcomes artists on the label he co-founded – Discotexas – stands behind the turntables and does it all over again without ever getting bored. And all these projects show the incredible eclecticism of his musical tastes. So, as is the case in his brand new album, “Balsame”, he introduces fado to electro, resurrects imaginary soundtracks of spaghetti westerns, sometimes adding a touch of psychedelia and an ounce of pop and sprinkles it all with house rhythms. With an innate sense of groove, Xinobi is the perfect emissary of a joyful melancholy.
