dB Short Info

dB is David Besteiro, portuguese beatmaker and a reference regarding the audio
archeology and deconstruction and (re)construction of musical samples.

Known for viral collaborations with Portuguese contemporary and idiosyncratic pop artist
PZ (with the singles "Cara de Chewbacca" and "Tu És A Minha Gaja") and with psychedelic
rap group Corona (with its two concept albums "Lo-Fi Hipster Sheat" and "Lo-Fi Hipster
Trip"), dB maintains his genesis: the beatmaking. It was his first three records of
instrumentals - "[Retro]Activo" (2012), "[Beat]erapia” (2012) and “Black Cobra” (2014) -
that put him on the radar of portuguese music.

The sampling is the main way that dB uses to pass messages, references and moods.
After 2 years since his last solo release, Portugal’s prominent artist is back with an
exploratory tribute album to his hometown: 4400 OG (4400 = Gaia’s ZIP code, OG =
Original Gangsta).
