Where you are from?
I am Brazilian, born in Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul. But I’m living in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina at the moment.
What inspires you the most from where you are living?
Currently, in Brazil, the scenes of Progressive, Techno, Afro-house and Deep house are being well represented by several national talents such as Davis, Zopelar, Mezomo, Alex Justino, Trommer among many other producers. Nevertheless, I believe that everything has references. I should mention the great talent Sonic Future, which has a lot of experience in music production and academic formation in production, in addition to great labels like there are Crossfrontier Audio, Timeless Moment, Flora, Not Another, Suara, Stil Vor Talent.
Could you tell us, how did you start in music?
So, the taste for music comes from childhood age. I saw my grandmother playing her instruments and that was my first contact with music. From that moment on, I started to practice the violin, took lessons and practiced at home. Over time, I saw that I was not that good at it so I went for keyboard lessons and gave up also on those lessons.
A long time ago, I made my first trip to Europe. Over there I got introduced to the techno scene and techno style. Returning to Brazil, I started attending more events within the local scene. So at the end of 2008, I made my first appearances as a DJ on some alternative events and trance parties.
Over the time, I adapted my musical genre and style to the one that I most identified with so I started producing techno and afro-house music. In 2010, I changed my career and became a professional DJ. But until then, being a DJ wasn’t my source of income. As time went by, just being a DJ and mixing tracks wasn’t enough anymore. As you might have guessed, I wanted to produce my own tracks, which I started doing in 2015. The first results came in 2017 when I had a great year and released 2 EP’s: ‘Birds’ that got a good response and ‘Xpand’, a collab with my good friend Mezomo music, both released on Bullfinch records.
In 2017, I had my best year. I had 2 launches, my first EP Birds by Bullfinch label, which had a very cool result, and the EP Xpand that I made with my great friend Mezomo music, where we launched 2 songs in a compilation by the label Bullfinch Records.
What or who are your passions and influences?
My influences come from techno, house music and afro house. The artists that inspire me the most at the moment are Djuma Soundsystem, Sonic Future, Hyenah, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Rampa, Agents of time, Tale of Us, Davis and Tim Engelhardt.
What can we expect from the mix you made?
What can I say?! I’ll show you some of the music I like at the moment, together with what I’ve been producing. Certainly, involvement, energy and melody.
What will the (near) future bring for you?
I imagine one day being able to set up a community studio to be able to distribute more music around the world. I also dream about releasing my songs on labels like Afterlife, Innervisions, DIYNAMIC, Watergate Records. In addition, I would like to play in places like Panorama Bar, The Peacock Society, BPM Festival, Warung Beach Club, CircoLoco, and D-Edge.
