Torres exists at the intersection of several percussive musical genres, from Brazilian funk to dancehall. These genres are more than a beat with lyrics praising sex, drug trafficking and ostentation, they’re global cultures living at a pace that moves way beyond the dance floor.
Besides hosting a monthly radio programme dedicated to Brazilian funk on Noods Radio (Bristol), in 2015, Torres joined NOIA to found XXIII, a limitless platform where club music influenced by the African diaspora finds expression through its online label, regular parties and curatorship of the Baile Maracujália.
