The amazing Portuguese producer Xinobi, aka Bruno Cardoso, is back in a big way with his wicked new single “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars”, a dark and epic disco-house banger that clocks in at almost eight minutes. If his previous EP “Pirates” on Smile Recordings made us chase nasty pirates on a fantasy boat, with this one we definitely end up playing air quitar on the dancefloor. We’d expect nothing less from Xinobi.
Xinobi’s “(I Hate The Sound of) Guitars” is out now digitally on Discotexas. Pick up the limited edition 12″ of 200 copies in white vinyl with silkscreen on the b- side here. Just in case you missed it, grab his killer edit of Nicolas Jaar’s “And I Say” below.
