WLTD003 Viewtiful Joe
Slappin’ Limerick EP
Welt Discos, the label run by Joe Delon and distributed by Lisbon’s Carpet & Snares, is back with its third release, this time from Viewtiful Joe. With high octane artwork by marutonkun, the record is out now on the label’s Bandcamp and available shortly in online and physical stores.
Casablanca-born but living in Paris, Viewtiful Joe aka Jonas Bengio is a producer and sound designer who makes hardware jam-based dance music inspired by video games and fast cars. Part of the Casa Voyager family, he incorporates the essence of 80s electro-funk and boogie into contemporary electro and IDM forms.
The Slappin Limerick EP is futuristic in sound, yet harks back to the heyday of breakdance in the early-to-mid 80s. These battle-ready boogie jams explode with wiggly slap bass, soaring pop melodies and the funk to make you jump. Lock in and freak out!
Welt Discos is a vinyl and digital label started by Joe Delon in late 2019 and driven by a love of musicality in dance music. Reflecting Joe’s own taste as a DJ, the label aims to push body-moving grooves from across the dance music spectrum, with an ear always tuned to the pop, snap and funk of early synthesised club sounds.
Welt Discos is part of the Carpet & Snares family, which comprises a physical record store in Lisbon, an online store, a family of record labels, and Portugal’s only vinyl distribution for new club music.
