Medeiros, born and raised in Azores, helped defining new ways for Portuguese culture and the Azorean cultural identity, having composed some of the most important music of the 20th century and sharing stages with the most important artists of folk music. Some people call him the Azorean Tom Waits, but as he’ll take on his town for the TREMOR show, Zeca Medeiros will come out as an essential artist for the Azorean songbook and for Portuguese-spoken music lovers.

    After venturing into the most mathematical genres of hardcore, all functions distorted reality and pointed Equations in the ways of prog-rock and its German counterpart kraut. Pinpointing in prog’s heavy riffing, the Porto-based band explodes in various directions, from electronic oriented layering of sounds to psych keyboard-lead harmonies as base to melodic and rhythmic exploration. For TREMOR, Equations take on all the momentum gained during their last euro-tour and subsequent Liverpool Psychfest show to lift us in their arpeggios on acid and take us back to the ground and shake it up.

Happy Meals are not about fast music; their sound only resembles fast food in the sense it is highly synth-oriented, with sweet, playful melodies. It is a delight for both the palate and the mind, exploring senses through music. To TREMOR, Happy Meals will bring their debut LP “Apéro”, sealed with the quality warranty of Night School Records, for a run in the Azores Islands.

We are talking about “mistura”, painting and music as means of interaction to create a performance.

Contrabass, piano and synthesizers, Etruscan flutes, tambourines, cello, kitchen utensils, bottles and other daily objects are  the stars of this galaxy composed in real time. Rapeciâz is communication. There is no musical hierarchy, all musicians are soloist. Rapeciâz is free improvisation that goes beyond limits, surpressing egos. Rapeciâz is also the meeting of two italians with Island of São Miguel and the creation of an exploratory landscape.

    restrictions that varies from ferocious screams to angelical virtuous chants guided by a visceral and adventurous performance. His music has taken him to the mountains of Norway, abandoned factories in Russia, legendary sovietic ships in Eastern Europe, concentration camps in Germany, a lightouse in the North Sea and to singing with wolves in excursions led by dogs in the end of Greenland.

The viola of the two hearts, the sister of viola braguesa, the viola of the Azores per excellence.  Carvalho is currently one of our most talented musicians. Master, musical director, cultural producer, composer and writer, he’s the living standard bearer of the instrument. He’s performed throughout the Azores, nationally and internationally in several different formations. “Origens” is his first moving and memorable record, followed by last year’s “Paralelo 38”. His performances are filled with dialogue about Viola da Terra, its context and symboligy, through demonstrations of the traditional musical repertoire, but also of his own compositions . He always dares to show the potential of the instrument and cativate new audiences.

There is the mastery of BOMBS AWAY!, the red record written with an astounding power. After many cocnerts, two videoclips, TREMOR is obviously their stage.

These three kids bring the pop formula to the heaviest most urgent of sounds, elevating toughness with a touch of sweet chorus deeply influenced by hard rock.

As Filho da Mãe, the Lisbon-based artist plays as someone deserving his name — which roughly translates to “son of a gun”, the jealous kind of gun: his virtuoso melodic approach is hauntingly beautiful and undeniably touched by the punk urgency of getting things done. Each of his songs embody a perfect balance between rapid melodic outburst and moving chord progressions.

With roots in jazz, dub as method and under the HHY moniker, he and the Macumbas heavily rhythmic ensemble explore the bleakest sides of texture in frequency.

TIO can sound like Tool, drum n’ bass grunge, cinematic rock, experimental blues and carry the visual of an acoustic punk machine. TIO has no trail and improvisation is also a way to move forward.

    SWIFT TRIIGA throws words into a precipice. He hails from Ponta Delgada and he’s our connection to SANDRO G, known as the father of Azorean hiphop with whom he regularly performs in the US. Beatmaker, ar-ti-cu-la-ted tongue and MC to the surface, SWIFT is addicted to  fit the flow into a beat because it’s in hiphop he finds the oxygen to face the hardships of the days. For him, hiphop is a means to overcome, motivate and leave behind what belongs to the past. Seeing him live is facing one of the most prolific voices of Azorean hiphop to whom crossing a beat is the road to follow a dream.

    DJ Quesadilla @ TASCÁ

    DJ Quesadilla is a usual on all things Lovers & Lollypops related. Resident DJ in Milhões de Festa, the Braga-born and Lisbon-based DJ prepares each set like a he’s serving an army: Brazilian tropicália proteins, dry rhythms from Africa, scented spices from India and a drunk touch from Turkish psychedelia. There’s no telling where Quesadilla stops — as far as we know, he never does.

    #hiphopaçoriano: DML @ Coliseu Micaelense - Sala 2

    DML is the moniker for Terceira Island’s rapper Dárcio Fonseca. In 2009, he launched his first mixtape “Caminho a Seguir”. The feedback was so encouraging that he went on with "D.A.R.C.I.O.", "O Meu Regresso", and a mixtape in collaboration with rapper Janai. His words hold his biography, experience, head and heart. Rapping is the strength that connects the pieces with flow and rhyme, and a strong sense of intervention and hope wrapped in beats that assemble different influences.

    Clinic
    Clinic @ Arco 8

    Liverpool rock outfit Clinic face the doors of perception like any wise man would: pop melodies with a hook and totally lost in keyboards. It’s never about just the music, but rather about how many layers of music you can listen to in each song, and each sensation they trap in it. Clinic are not about reinventing the wheel — they just let it roll, non-stop until burning out.

    Capitão Fausto
    Capitão Fausto @ Coliseu Micaelense - Sala 1

    Os Capitão Fausto assumem o mito do demónio em forma de psicadelismo descontrolado, numa expressão portuguesa com o sotaque internacional da guitarra embebida em psicotrópicos e o gingar típico da poluição de britânica no baixo, que dava cadência tanto aos Pink Floyd quanto aos Beatles. É, aliás, nas incontáveis possibilidades destes pilares rock que os lisboetas se desdobram, sempre com os controladores bem orientados para a psique. Preparem as sinapses, graças aos Capitão Fausto ainda vão poder interiorizar novas dimensões da idílica paisagem açoreana

    #hiphopaçoriano: Fred Cabral @ Coliseu Micaelense - Sala 2

    Fred Cabral hails from Ponta Delgada. He entered hip hop through Grafitti and rap. Firstly a tagger, he then found in rhymes his means to write about life. “La Revolucion” and “Somos Um Só” are 2 of his mixtapes that include internet’s anthem “Guerreiro Insular”, filmed in a desolate mythical and abandoned Monte Palace hotel. He’s perfomed both in the Islands of Terceira and São Miguel, but it is the internet that holds for him a cult of followers pulled by his power of delivery in denouncing what should not be said.

    PAUS @ Coliseu Micaelense - Sala 1

    Starting off with a siamese drum kit, where one kick joints two differents sets, PAUS were always about the immediate, and still feel like it — energetic, engaging and defying. Their take on music sets on the grey area between rock and electronica that attack both legs and brains in one’s body. For TREMOR the Lisbon-based band will bring their third record, “Mitra”.

    Dan Deacon @ Coliseu Micaelense - Sala 1

    Dan Deacon brings melody, harmony and rhythm to the pop level, just to throw it again to the back with bright, saturated colors in modulation. Each of the producer’s performances leaves the necessary bruised senses, mangled up in hyper-stimulating, engaging songs.

    Doni @ Coliseu Micaelense - Sala 2

    Doni lives in several neighbourhoods and for each place he holds a different name. Out here, yeah right here his name is Doni. In Arroios (Google it) is MITRIATES. In Terreiro do Paço or Coliseu do Porto, is half BANDIDO$ and half “marca pistola” (Ok, Google again!). Let’ s cal him Doni to make things easier. Doni is an ex-football player that never managed to attain any success. He then turned to music. Since he couldn’ t play any instruments, he had no other option than being a DJ. Voilá! He gets horny on a dancefloor where he prefers much dancing  and little talking. He’ s friends with everyone but house and techno are daily companies of his choice. Don’ t be surprised if he comes up with german and portuguese EDM. He has nothing against mp3but he collects vynil. At age 37, he just started learning the drums.
