Lisbon Kid Short Info

Lisbon Kid is a London-based alternative acoustic electronica duo, comprised of Portuguese musician producers Rui da Silva and Danny de Matos.

Rui da Silva is best known for his multi-million selling worldwide dance-floor smash and UK number one ‘Touch Me’ and for many other EDM collaborations he has produced adding to his work as a cutting-edge and pioneering world club DJ. Danny de Matos is an award nominated indie/alternative TV ad music composer and songwriter producer, scoring for global brands such as Apple, BBC, Coke, Suzuki, amongst others, and working with alternative pop artists such as republica and more recently, Sony Columbia’s newest female alternative pop indie starlet Chloe Howl.

From their beginnings at Canvas Art Gallery in London for a select audience of UK’s cutting-edge advertising industry, Lisbon Kid have already done shows in Camden, supports for M+A in Shoreditch, and private after-parties DJ sets at Soho House for Scarlet Johansson’s ‘Under The Skin’ and their international debut at the Cannes Festival.

Their first single ‘Event Horizon’ featuring Hafdís Huld, is currently receiving heavy rotation on radio stations in Europe. Dance remixes of ‘Event Horizon’ have been released worldwide on legendary New York label Nervous Records NYC.

The band creates a seemingly effortless and laidback mix of electronica and acoustic instruments, often with ambient landscaping and employing elements of sound design. Added to this is a huge song-based pop sensibility and emotional lyrical content that gives the project the obvious uniqueness that is Lisbon Kid. Influences include Royksopp, Zero 7, Pink Floyd, Cinematic Orchestra, Kinobe , Massive Attack, M83, Nick Drake.
