Photonz is the alias of Portoguese Lisbon-based producer and DJ Marco Rodrigues. As a DJ, Photonz grew a reputation for deep crates and intensely euphoric sets and in 2017, together with Violet (co-founder at his Radio Quantica) and Lisbon’s own Rabbit Hole collective, he started the now infamous Mina parties – a monthly, sex-positive, queer and intersectional-feminist techno party aimed at using the dissociative potential of intense raving to create a temporary space of suspension away from patriarchal expectations.
He announced the release of the first full-length. Nuit is out on October 11th via San Francisco based label Dark Entries. The title refers to the Egyptian Goddess of the Stars or Night. The vinyl comes housed in a royal blue and neon yellow jacket with duality/birth symbolism and trance-hieroglyphs designed by Eloise Leigh. Excerpts are available via Soundcloud. Listen below.
