Man 108 | 14th of December 2018

Man Recordings is happy to release the new single by Polish-Angolan duo Lua Preta. Titled “Cabeça Na Lua” (“Head On The Moon”).

Based in the Western Polish city of Poznan, Lua Preta are consisting of vocalist and MC Ms. Gia of Angolan descent, and Polish DJ and producer Mentalcut. Together they bring a frenetic mixture of futuristic electronic music and African genres. Their 2016's debut single “Melhor Vai Embora” strongly marked their presence in the scene of African infused club music which led to their first EP  “Emoçoes Coloridas”. Their fresh and unique sound led to 2018 being their breakthrough year with their biggest hit up to date being released ('Quero Mais' featuring Lesotho's Morena Leraba), their first official video being shot entirely in Lisbon and a round of live appearances on festivals and club shows across Europe.

With their debut release on Man Recordings, additional produced by label-boss Daniel Haaksman, Lua Preta move another step forward. Titled “Head On The Moon” this EP features two new tracks. “Cabeça Na Lua” is a heavy hitting, broken beat meets UK funky afro tune reflecting on the need to continue the fight for political and social justice in these grim political times. “Passado” ft. Kevin is a samba and African percussion inspired tune ft. Ms.Gia´s brother Kevin on additional vocals, perfect for maximum club excitement.

Early DJ support by Pearson Sound, Dengue Dengue Dengue, Poirier and many more!
Watch out for Lua Preta, 2019 is going to be their big year!
