Neopop 2017 – Official Aftermovie
A respected and undisputed master of electronic music for the past two decades, St Germain has always been known for his uncanny ability to subtly blend machines and instruments, authentic roots and modern influences. His music is a complex blend, reflecting his love of the blues, jazz and Black music of all kinds, with hypnotic electronic loops and harmoniously intertwined vocal samples. A veritable sound sorcerer, his work is a blend of exceptional music, from Detroit to Saint Germain, taking in Mississippi and more recently, West Africa. According to St Germain, after acid jazz, nu jazz and deep house, it’s time to make way for Afro deep house.
Neopop is Portugal’s most respected electronic music festival. Each summer the festival invites a line-up packed with techno royalty as well as some of the underground’s most exciting talent for three days of music appreciation, just meters from the Atlantic Ocean. Set across two stages in the stunning northern Portuguese coastal town of Viana do Castelo, Neopop has become a bucket-list festival for techno and electronic music fans across the continent, looking to experience their favourite sounds in a beautiful historic setting. Viana do Castelo is in the Minho region of Northern Portugal, a half hour’s drive from Porto airport. The Pilgrimage to the Nossa Senhora da Agonia church, the amazing views of the Lima River as well as the local Portuguese cuisine make this city unforgettable. Watch a clip from 2017’s event here.
