Active since the late 1980’s in the post-punk scene of the suburbs of Lisbon, Portugal, Luis van Seixas shifted into electronica and breakbeat sonic territories in 1997, becoming a underground household name and performing in the vibrant club scene at the time. Produced numerous albums for Portuguese artists and his collaborative work includes Ah Cama-Sotz, Mimetic, xotox, shhh… and Flint Glass, to name a few. After convincing Fernando Cerqueira (SPH, Croniamental, Ras-Al-Ghul) to start a record label, and thanks to the support of the Municipalities of Lisbon and Almada, Thisco becomes a renewed not-for-profit label, releasing over 60 CDs of newcomers and veteran artists between 2001-2011. The likes of Jarboe (Swans), Merzbow, Phil Von, KK Null, Mimetic, have been calling Thisco home for the past two decades. Living in Memphis since 2010, Luis has collaborated with Memphis Concrete, Sonosphere, and curated sound installations/performances at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, where he worked for over five years.
