Dear Lisbon Friends,
I hope your year is off to a great start, the season 2022 of the Lisbon Village is looking epic already.
A new excuse of celebration has come, with the long awaited return to Lisbon of our Columbian sardine-looking, grandmaster record digger and NYC ReSolute resident Tomas Station! Accompanying our guest of honour will be our favorite grumpy Frenchman & duck-sounding groover Momüs. Together they will finally dust off these dancing shoes you've been keeping in the closet for so long, in an old-fashioned boiling washing machine dance-floor extravaganza.
Graced by a full stack Audio Factory pristine soundystem for our ears pleasures and comfort, we will have the chance to gather, dance, drink, and laugh in a secret location TBA in Lisbon Center, from 10pm to 6am next Saturday Feb. 12th. Exact location will be revealed to ticket holders on the day of.
This is an entirely legal and responsible event, let’s make sure we keep it smooth by respecting the special environment we will have available for our shenanigans, and comply with the current COVID regulations.
No particular theme, just come as your best self.
I wish you all a great day and can’t wait to see you on the dancefloor!

Boiler Room in Bogota -
Growing up between Bogotá and Chicago, Tomás experienced at an early age a clash of cultures and sounds that would open doors to a lifelong musical obsession. He received formal music training during his youth, playing both piano and drums, and participated in several bands ranging in styles from Hardcore Punk to Jazz. During a summer visit to Chicago during his teenage years he stumbled across the legendary Gramaphone Records and discovered a world that would change everything for him. Upon returning to Colombia, dreaming of drum machines and synthesizers, he formed Downpitch Recordings alongside labelmates Dorado and Bruno Anthony. The label served as a platform for their sonic development and experimentation while allowing them to preserve the vinyl tradition-and quality-over- quantity ethos that seemed to be absent in the local scene at that time. Deeply rooted in House, but with an outsider approach, Downpitch would also establish cultural bridges between cities, and by working hand in hand with their
Chicago and Detroit precursors, contribute to what some refer to as a recent dance music renaissance in Colombia.
For the past few years Tomás has kept on the move, constantly searching for new sounds and experiences, rapidly building a reputation for himself as an exciting up-and-coming talent. His productions on labels such as Dailysession NY, Descendants Of The Deep, Moody Recordings and Future Funktion have captivated the likes of Danny Krivit, Raresh, Magda and Douglas Sherman (The Loft), to name a few, while his electrifyingly unpredictable taste as a DJ and curator has earned him more than one spot at the decks alongside some of the most respected selectors and DJ’s around. While living in NY he worked as
music buyer for Halcyon The Shop and as booker and resident for Kolekti and Zodiac Social, hosting parties with
Soul In The Hole (Sadar Bahar & Lee Collins), Metro Area & Mark Grusane, amongst many others.. He recently returned
to Brooklyn after some years on the road to work on his most recent endeavours which include Jigit, a record label
and collective alongside Turkish DJ and producer O.BEE and visual artist Asli Tunaman that released his debut EP under the Irie Nation moniker and to consolidate his long time friendship with the ReSolute party and agency where he will be joining the roster and acting as one of the resident DJ’s.
FYI, Momus or Momos was in Greek mythology the god of satire, mockery, censure, writers, poets; a spirit of evil-spirited blame and unfair criticism. He is depicted in classical art as lifting a mask from his face.
Momus is also and foremost a Parisian house music lover, who started in 2004 to actively collect records and regularly DJ in Paris, forging himself a peculiar music style falling somewhere between house, funk, and techno.
Moving to New York in 2009, Momüs pursued a sound engineer program to further develop his electronic music knowledge and skills. Rapidly part of the local underground scene, Momüs continuously learns and improves his DJ sets and productions, leading him to become resident at Output, Disco Before Sunset, Studio 151 and Baron among others. Tired of the hectic lifestyle of the Apple, Momüs moved to Lisbon in 2016 where he opened the beach club Yamba, and currently resides.
Influenced by both Detroit analog raw sounds and Parisian filtered and funky house, Momüs bridges the styles in his warm, groovy, and disco infused DJ sets and production, with the simple aim to get the best moves and smiles out of his audience; no mental masturbation here.
