So fresh out of the desert you might think it would be covered in sand, here comes a mix from the Lisbona Sisters. Successfully heating up the Yuma tent at Coachella both weekends, the Lisbona Sisters are a dance music powerhouse making moves on a meteoric level.
The mix they have for you to groove to today is from their second weekend in the Yuma tent that consists of only the finest selections. Press play, close your eyes, and maybe, just maybe you’ll see that disco shark spinning and shining so brightly as Ava and Laura Lisbona get to business on this fire set.
The Lisbona Sisters are (surprise, surprise) sisters, both born in Atlantic City but dominantly products of the Coachella Valley (you’ll hear no Jersey accents, but you may catch the occasional no-nonsense East Coast attitude). They performed at the Do Lab in 2015; here’s a short snippet from their 2015 set. (Fun fact: the woman in white on stage spraying the crowd is their mom). You’ll be able to clearly see why the Yuma tent was happy to have them for their 2016 production.
Over the last year, they’ve fired up dance floors with Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Green Velvet, Duke Dumont, Diplo, Felix da Housecat and many more. Also, if you’re one for another desert gathering called Burning Man, the Lisbona Sisters are residents and core members of the legendary Disco Knights.
On the production front, the Lisbonas have entered the studio world full-force. Keep a lookout for their techy remix of Yolanda Be Cool & Wongos’ “The Roosevelt”, coming out on Dim Mak. You may remember another stellar Yolanda Be Cool + Lisbona Sisters collaboration from last summer when the ladies both produced and starred in the Aussie duo’s “Soul Makossa (Money)” which was picked up by MTV and featured across 25 million households. You’ll also see some cameos of LA social scene and music/fashion icons like Cocodisco, Lauren Lane and Jacques Smith.
Also set for release is a funky, bassy remix of electro-pop band Date Nite’s “Venn D”, out on the band’s label Moon Milk, plus a dark, dreamy remix of sultry vocalist Rena Hart’s “Straitjacket”.
Now, you’d better remember the Lisbona Sisters because they are everything the dance music scene needs and more!
