about

From the offset, RS Produções demonstrate their skill at tension and release, often building up beatless intros before launching searing claps and punchy basslines.
THE WIRE

+

RS (Rinchoa Stress) began in 2014 as a group of close friends, even before they started producing. The warm shout-outs in closing anthem "Hino RS" reveal the affection they feel for each other, just after the main melodic hook gets going. Things got serious in 2016 when Narciso, then 17, decided to take production seriously and relaunched RS as a proper crew with DJs (himself, Nuno, Nulo and Lima), producers (himself, Nuno and Farucox) and MC (Pimenta).

Out of "Bagdad" (Rinchoa, Rio de Mouro), in under 2 years, RS made a name for themselves with tight, across the board grooves, working melody and metal beats with equal proficiency. "Caipirinha" and "Constipação Do Poco" adopt a more muscular batida architecture and rave on with proper metallic cargaa; "Guerreiro" brings out a brilliant, dissonant main motive, defying some rules of melody and timbre; a string of semi-tarraxos follows: "Lingrinhas" and "Atrevimento" insist on the "wrong" side of melody in less than 2 minutes each and, at 2:04, "Futuro" slows down even more in a reflective mood while all around everything appears to be falling apart (listen closely to the explosions in the distance); on to the longer stretch of "Abertura", a house number where every element seems to follow its own independent course, carefully placed in a separate track, all moving in the same direction. Narciso and Nuno layed down all compositions here, teaming up as the core producers of RS, growing up post DJs Di Guetto (2006 - see our timeline elsewhere on the web) and into the crew's now regular gigs at Príncipe's monthly residency (@Musicbox, Lisbon).
