Discotexas FAQ

Ask Away

Why Pineapples?

We get that question a lot. The truth is, we’ve never truly discovered the answer to that question ourselves.



Discotexas was founded by Moullinex & Xinobi in 2007 as a platform to release their own music and the music they loved.

The Lisbon, Portugal family operation is run by:

  • Dani Zinni

  • Vasco Cabeçadas

  • Filipa Marinho

  • Hugo Moutinho

  • Bruno Cardoso

  • Luis Clara Gomes


Who designs DTX?

The Discotexas identity and artwork was designed by Rita Matos.

Also, Mariano Pascual and Bráulio Amado are two very talented artists who work with us often.

Many of our photos were taken by Nash Does Work, Daniel Azevedo, Nian Canard, Sérgio Santos and Lydie Bárbara.


Who masters your music?

We work with the very talented Pieter de Wagter at EQUUS. He’s the reason we sound good.


What is Forbidden Cuts?

Forbidden Cuts is actually three different things:

  • Our sister label, exclusively dedicated to the dancefloor;

  • The weekly radio show hosted by Mr. Mitsuhirato on PT national radio, also available on demand;

  • Our very first release, DT001.


We are usually fine with most non-commercial uses of our music IF you contact us requesting just that. However, we will not tolerate hate speech or any kind of discrimination. We believe in music uniting, not dividing.
For commercial uses, we control both master and publishing for most of our catalog, so just use the Contact Form and let us know what you’re looking for.

Can i use your music in MY PROJECT?


Do you accept demos?

We do, and we do our best to go through all of them regularly. To increase your odds of getting your material listened to, please make sure that you include a small paragraph introducing you and your music. We prefer links instead of attachments, so that our inbox is manageable. Also, please make sure that if you are emailing us, you're not also emailing 20 other labels in the same email - at least show us you care. We'll return the favor.


Can I book artist “X”?

Sure. For bookings and artist management-related inquiries, please use the Contact Form and we’ll sort it out.


What’s the cost?

Yes! We’ll provide you with a tracking number so you can see your beloved item travel around the world.
We use CTT for most orders, and shipping cost varies according to weight. Our Store calculates shipping costs automatically based on your cart’s contents upon checkout. If you want another shipping service, shoot us an email.


Will you repress/restock?

We can make new copies of some of the items in the Store, and some we just can’t anymore due to new suppliers, special editions, etc. Just let us know what you’re looking for using the Contact Form.
