Before finishing his next new album, Throes + The Shine have decided to close the curtain on Enza, their previous album, with 13 remixes: ‘Enza Remixes’. They have done it very well accompanied by artists of very different styles based in Portugal. Enza Remixes travels from techno to global bass, house or ambient. These reinterpretations demonstrate the universal appeal of the trio’s music. On the other hand, next year will mark the band’s 10th anniversary celebrations and we can count on the release of new music over the next few months, culminating with the Angolan-Portuguese band’s fifth album at the end of 2021.
Some of these new songs are being enjoyed since this spring in their energetic live shows planned throughout this year throughout Europe. The Portuguese-Angolan trio Throes + The Shine is working on the production of the new album with producers Jori Collignon (Founder Skip & Die) and Pedro Da Linha (producer of Enchufada Records, Ana Moura and Branko, among many). With this new work, Throes + The Shine celebrates its first decade on stage.
