“There’s just one thing, I’d say, that I find in all the music I like, and that is honesty.” The quote belongs to Mafalda, the DJ, top selector and crate digger raised in Porto, these days living in London where she has teamed up with Floating Points in running Melodies International, a label devoted to reissues of rare soul’n’disco gems. Mafalda, who worked as a fashion designer when she was living in Portugal, moved to London without really knowing anyone. Eventually she made a lot of friends at the legendary and now closed Shoreditch club Plastic People, and one of them was Sam Shepherd from Floating Points.


From her DJ sets you can expect a lot of variation. Mafalda plays pretty much whatever she feels like listening to. At Way Out West you’ll find her at Red Bull Stage Dungen stage, most certainly in the company of honest music.


Mafalda will play at Red Bull Stage Dungen, Way Out West.
