Mafalda is one of those DJs you stumble across and instantly fall in love with. Originally from Portugal, Mafalda grew up listening to music and started to learn English from her father aged 5 so that she could translate Pet Shop Boys lyrics.
These days Mafalda co-runs Melodies International with Sam Shepherd (aka Floating Points), which is rapidly becoming one of the most highly regarded reissue labels out there. She’s also a resident of the label’s much-loved party, You’re A Melody and works behind the counter at the incredibly well curated Cosmos Records.
Aside from digging, licensing and re-releasing some of the best-lost records from the last century, Mafalda frequently appears on the radio including Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM.
