Highly respected in his homeland, Tiago's reputation for killer expansive DJ sets built off the back of a weekly residency at Lisbon night spot Club Lux has slowly been complemented by a deft production touch that has graced respected labels like DFA, ESP Institute and Internasjonal to name but three. Commonly lumped in with the overpopulated waters of nu-disco, his productions outrank the average edit in the quality stakes and he throws a pleasantly in your face curveball on this debut for DJ Kaos' Jolly Jams imprint. "Soul Jam" is a truly explosive floor burning techno track that really has only one intention and doesn't attempt to be subtle about it - file alongside the recent Tuff City Kids EP on Unterton and I:Cube's "Transpiration" as box keeping bomb drops. Alongside this, Tiago maintains the same style of driving rhythmic programming on "Motorjam" but adds more melodic elements into the fray, while "Lost & Found Jam" slips down the tempo scale for dub laden slo mo disco finish. Great twelve!
