Xinobi is Bruno Cardoso a Portuguese grown-up-kid obsessed with music. He’s part of a generation that grew up within the music-blog eruption fueled by Do It Yourself ethics.
After releasing a few solid eps on labels like Discotexas, Work-It-Baby, Ministry of Sound and Nurvous he gained a real recognition among more established and well-known artists and opinion-makers, and his underground cult become more ample.

This all lead to his debut album “1975″ released October 13th, 2014. ’1975′ is special. It’s packed full of sonically-rich, epic productions that sound big, but not bombastic or over-baked. They take in elements of Morricone-style soundtracks, dub, surf guitar, deep house, disco and acid, all delivered with a pop sensibility and individual flare that sets it apart from other, more generic dance music long players.During 54 minutes, the album roves from contemplative moments, deep dance floor dynamics to memorable choruses, adorned with a colourful…

They take in elements of Morricone-style soundtracks, dub, surf guitar, deep house, disco and acid, all delivered with a pop sensibility and individual flare that sets it apart from other, more generic dance music long players.During 54 minutes, the album roves from contemplative moments, deep dance floor dynamics to memorable choruses, adorned with a colourful and joyous array of sounds that are beautifully produced. Despite Xinobi’s appetite for devouring various genres, there is a unique watermark and consistency to his output, due not least to his musical and arrangement-based skills.

Together with his friends and work-partners Moullinex and Mr. Mitsuhirato he gave birth to the still-growing-influent Discotexas, a Record Label which is getting more and more followers and admirers and is stepping further to a respectable dimension of scene-credibility.
