For the last six years, Luis Dourado has been writing, producing, and singing under the alias Purple, an ominous apparition that allows the Portuguese musician to blend the aforementioned talents into one artistic breath. Growing up in the Porto, Purple was first introduced to the scene through Terrain Ahead, an electronic collective/label he founded with fellow Portugal artists IVVVO and Trikk. He self released his debut record “Violence” in 2011 and it wasn’t long until other luminaries began to show interest, including Los Angeles producer Shlohmo. After a few initial conversations, Purple became an official member of Shlohmo’s tightly knit Los Angeles crew/label WeDidIt, and in November of 2013 Purple released his first record with the label entitled “Salvation”. Now working and living in London, Purple looks prepared to further push his left field antics into center stage.
