A quick glance at the cover should tell you that Diron Animal is a unique artist. While his dazzling clothing choices are never less than remarkable, it's the music that he serves up on this debut solo album that's most arresting. Now based in Portugal, the singer/producer grew up in an Angolan ghetto, and many of the album's multi-lingual lyrics focus on the effects of poverty on children. Musically, it's typical of the vibrant African-European dancefloor fusion scene found in Portugal, offering a unique and kaleidoscopic fusion of kuduro, traditional African rhythms, contemporary electrofunk, South African rap and dizzyingly bright and breezy, synth-heavy workouts. As you can probably tell, we're struggling to accurately describe it, but that's no bad thing: it's a truly unique proposition.
