I met Wes a.k.a. KOFI (an Akan name, meaning “born on Friday”) during the Winter of 2015 in Rotterdam. Our encounter was too brief for a collaboration, but long enough for great music talk while digging for records in discount crates. I could tell I had found a musical brother from far away. Back in São Paulo, almost a year later, I suggested he made a tape for the label I was about to start. I was happy to receive back a beat tape that expressed the love we share for laid back music, Brazilian samples and the combination of MPC pads and the SP404 compression. His 5 year old daughter captured the music’s deepness as well as its innocence on the tape’s artwork.

Eu conheci o Wes, ou KOFI (um nome Akan, cujo significado é "nascido em uma sexta-feira") no inverno de 2015 em Rotterdam. Nosso encontro foi muito curto para criarmos juntos, mas longo o suficiente para termos ótimas conversas sobre músicas enquanto caçávamos discos com desconto. Dava pra ver que eu tinha encontrado um irmão musical que morava longe. Em São Paulo, quase um ano depois, sugeri que ele lançasse uma fita pelo selo que eu estava para começar. Tive o prazer de receber uma fita de batidas que expressava o gosto que compartilhamos por música tranquila, samples brasileiros e a combinação dos pads da MPC com a compressão da SP404. A filha dele, de 5 anos, capturou na arte a profundidade da música, assim como sua inocência.
