Revolução 2005 – 2008 covers the producer’s formative years.

Boomkat Editions is to release a compilation of early tracks from Lisbon’s DJ Marfox, one of the central figures of the Portuguese capital’s kuduro scene.

Revolução 2005 – 2008 covers the formative years of the Afro-Portuguese dance music genre, when the producer, real name Marlon Silva, was building his reputation playing local parties and uploading tracks to filesharing site eMule.

The nine-track double-vinyl release features a number of tracks previously only available digitally, including several from 2006’s DJs Do Guetto Vol.1 compilation available on Principe Discos.

In the years since his early releases, Marfox has released on labels including Lit City Trax and Warp, where last year he featured on an EP of artists from the Lisbon scene called Cargaa 1.
