Native Instruments is a German company that creates hardware and software for music producers and DJs around the world. The company featured on their YouTube channel a video called "Hyper Beats from the Bairro" showcasing music talents from Lisbon. Among the featured artists was, DJ Marfox, DJ Nigga Fox, DJ Firmeza and DJ Maboku . Each of them spoke about what playing and producing music meant to them and to the people around them.

"I don't know if it's a Lisbon mix or a Europe mixed with Africa. I don't know what it is, I know it's something new.", said DJ Marfox referringg to "the new music" produced in the outskirts of Lisbon.
When it comes to drive and motivation, DJ and producer Nigga Fox said the following, "Knowing that there are people outside of Portugal listening to my music, asking "more, more", you know? That's one of the things that drives me. Someone from China, listening to my music from here...straight from my room, I don't even have a proper studio. It's a pleasure."
