“FIEBRE” is the latest offering from Peruvian born but now Berlin-based production duo DENGUE DENGUE DENGUE. Their previous projects have been released on Lisbon label Enchufada, this time the pair partners with Mexican underground powerhouse NAAFI.

After a period of exploration after coming together in Lima, the duo started to look inwards to their own heritage for inspiration – becoming enamored by the sounds of Latin America, they embarked on a tropical futurist excursion and decide to name themselves Dengue Dengue Dengue back in 2010. The desire to marry traditional Latin rhythms and their love of club culture is at the heart of Dengue Dengue Dengue.

“Tropical music has been in our lives since we were kids…”

At first, they base their sound on the psychedelic cumbia sound that came out of the Peruvian jungle in the 70s, they follow by folding in elements of Afro-Peruvian music, traditional Andean cadence and Colombian cumbia, which is the pioneering iteration of the genre.

Dengue Dengue Dengue now once again expand their sound. Exploring polyrhythms and delving into new practices, and they continue to pave uncharted new paths for contemporary Latin dance music.

Lisbon producer/dj’s Branko and PEDRO (formerly known as King Kong) collaborate on the hypnotic sounding, funked up tribal club bomb “MPTS” (= a shortened, Portuguese SMS term for “Meus Putos” — which loosely translates to meaning “my crew”). The track is released via Enchufada and it’s the first in a series of new Branko singles, his first new material since 2016’s much acclaimed “Reserva Pra Dois” and follows up the 2017 compilation “Enchufada Na Zona”.
