My Radio is Out Now!
The portuguese artist, TSAS, has a new album called “My Radio”!
The sound is daring and electrifying, showing, without a doubt, that party music is much more diverse and profound than the drop.
This release is a pyramid of carefully placed sounds with various high-spirited moments for the listener to travel to. The portuguese vocals, most high pitched and clipping, add an out-of-this-world touch to the album, along with its snarly percussion and hard hitting synths.

In the making…
TSAS has been teasing the album at his socials (IG vid on Jun-23, IG vid on Sep-27 , YT preview & news on Aug-30) revealing how some of the beats were made. He recorded specific instruments and vocals for each of the songs. In “Cookin Time” you can hear his diy talkbox (“I made a talkbox”), in “Encontrar” there’s a variety of drums and percussion fills, “Teu Jeito” starts with beatbox and it develops from there, and “Antes de Agir” contains didgeridoo, both played and resampled, as well as the middle-eastern drum doumbek, to name a few.
In this new release, TSAS felt “it was about time” he did something in Portuguese and this 11 track album is packed with meaningful messages. For instance, the lyrics in “Aparenta” (~ “Appear”), translates the idea of an artist lying (creates characters/places/etc) in order to convey a certain underlying message or to make people think. This is also based on “O poeta é um fingidor…” (~A Poet is a pretender…) by the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa.
