Interview: Brazilian Envoy on his intriguing House project

We tried to discover the artist’s past, present and future.

“Not just a pretty face”, says Brazilian Envoy on his Instagram page. What face, though? That’s pretty much the point he tries to make when he puts on his quirky and, at the same time, fun mask before going on stage. A no-face man is still playing and producing some great Tech House, Techno, Minimal and House beats, after all.

We had a conversation with him, in order to understand a bit more about this enigmatic project, having only the information that, although Brazilian Envoy is a new project, this guy has been working in the industry for 10 years now, most of it living in the US. Let’s find out about the rest.

Hey, no-face friend. Where are you now?

Brazilian Envoy: Hi, Hello. At this moment I’m in Brazil.

Tell us about this mask. What’s the message behind it and your visual ID in general?

The message behind the mask is very simple and straightforward: “Only music matters, who is behind the project is irrelevant.” 

Since you’ve already got a 10-year career as a DJ and producer, did you find it difficult to hide your info? Do you plan on taking the mask off in the future?  

No, I didn’t. It’s actually a lot of fun and fulfilling seeing people enjoying my work without knowing who is behind the project. I have no plan of revealing my identity! 

What is the difference, musically, between your new project and your past career? Tell us your highlights in the last 10 years! 

The biggest difference from before is that this project is more tech house-techno driven and it doesn’t explore as many genres as we used to. A couple of my favorite highlights are:

Number 1 on “Techno Top 100 Chart” on one of my favorite music streaming platforms.

Finalist in the biggest DJ competition in the world.

We see that your sound is mostly based on nuances of Tech House, Techno and House. What are your main references at the moment and how do you define your music as a producer? 

Definitely, my 3 biggest references are Paco Osuna, Nicole Moudaber and Carl Cox. 

I define my productions as a combination of tech house and techno. If you are having a hard time defining if my release is one or the other then that’s exactly what I want, to bring what I like most from both styles!

What are the main challenges you face while developing this project? 

Starting it all from scratch, having to do it all over again. It takes a lot of time and effort.

Also, getting to know a new market can be a huge challenge. 

You’ve lived both in Brazil and in the US. What most inspires you in each country?

USA: The production behind the big events. The accessibility you have to see big artists. The interaction between the people and the events, they go all out with costumes, they created a movement and that’s awesome.

Brazil: They are super friendly and fun. People involved in the scene are always striving for evolution. Artists always bring at least a little bit of their culture into their music. And this country is beautiful, so much to see and explore. 

What can we expect from you for the next year? Any special tracks, performances, trips coming? Thank you! 

Definitely some big releases coming out next year and also an international tour is getting planned out for the second semester, so stay tuned. 

Thank you.

Thank you for having me!
