Despite the financial crisis going on around here, Portugal has been one of Europe's finest netaudio producers over this last decade, being the home country of some of the most prolific netlabels on this continent, such as Enough Records, MiMi Records or Test Tube.
Clorofila Azul is a one-man-project and an alter-ego of Hugo Santos, a multimedia artist from Oporto. Started in 1997, his music saw the daylight ten years later when Lisbon based netlabel Test Tube released a series of two records with a selection of some of his best tracks. "Revisitado (com voz)" was the first volume to be published. The twelve track record is a delightful IDM/experimental pop collection, with a nice blend between catchy tunes and some irresistible sound bytes.
Since 2008, Programa Marca Branca has been the only regular portuguese radio show exclusively dedicated to netaudio and free culture, with weekly podcasts and features on this digital universe.
