Premiere: Moullinex shoots for the stars with melodic new single, ‘Minina di Céu’
Moullinex links up with fellow Portuguese talent Sara Tavares for “Minina di Céu,” together delivering a stirringly soothing package of uplifting house with a driving vocal narrative.
Sang in Tavares’ native language of Cape-verdian Creole, “Minina di Céu” tells the tale of a young girl destined for cosmic adventure. This theme is also evoked in Moullinex’s expansive and free-flowing instrumentals, which simultaneously paint a picture of a sonic galaxy ripe for exploration while keeping the production grounded on earth with crisp west African percussion and a warm, melodic embrace.
“Minina di Céu,” which translates to “Girl from Heaven,” is the fourth single from Moullinex’s upcoming Requiem For Empathy LP, and exemplifies the Lisbon producer’s shift from disco releases to a more introspective and emotionally lucid sound. The full album is scheduled to hit airwaves in early spring, with pre-saves and pre-orders available here.
“Minina di Céu” will formally release on February 19, but listeners can stream it one day early, only on Dancing Astronaut.
