info 

Populous is Andrea Mangia, a producer hailing from Lecce, a small city on the heel of Italy's boot. He moved to Lisbon, Portugal to start work on the album bringing with him only a laptop, a small MIDI keyboard, and a microphone. He wandered the city collecting field recordings— from trams to people singing on street corners. He sifted through flea markets for records to use for sampling (exclusively Portuguese and South American). Lisbon is a city 'halfway between South American soul and European modernity, African in some aspects, and dramatically melancholic. He channeled these poignant fusions into Azulejos. It's a love letter to Lisbon, and a dreamy quilt of sounds he both grew up with and heard for the first time during his influential stay in Portugal.
