Pedro Coquenão has been creating music, dance, radio, visual and plastic arts under the Batida alias.
Gilles Peterson introduced him as follows in a dedicated special on BBC 6 Music:
“There’s certain types of music that come out of Portugal, Lisbon, over the years…! All of this is sort of linked together for me by this one producer who goes by the name of Batida. It’s just on another level in terms of how he presents his show, how he approaches his music making, whether he is Djing or performing live, or adding visuals, philosophically just how he goes about his business.”
