Producer and DJ Violet sets the nightlife of Lisbon in motion like no other. Inês Borges Coutinho views her role in the underground as something more than just making and mixing music, funnelling her boundless energy into empowering other artists in her scene. Pan-African influences form an exciting symbiosis with modern electronics, the ideal moment for gourmets on the dance floor to rejoice. Violet’s debut is called Bed Of Roses – indeed, named after that famous Bon Jovi ballad – and forms, as it were, a diary of sound that jumps from one mood to another.
