Hi Vitor, welcome to DMC World! Congratulations on your new single ‘Calling’ with Jesus Luz & Marmii. Can you tell us how this collaboration came about?
The idea came during our winter, as we wanted to prepare a deep house song for the end of year. We had very good energy in the studio, especially because they are very good friends of mine. I also admire Jesus Luz, he is a very nice person with a good heart. This year, Jesus Luz & I also launched a collab called “Habla Compadre”, which reached 1 million streams on Spotify.
It’s is a seriously catchy single. What was the inspiration behind it?
Our inspiration came from old EDM tracks, also from new deep houses songs. Marmii likes to listen of Sonny Fodera, Joel Corry. The syncopate piano worked very well for the second drop.
Have you played it out for a crowd? What was the reaction like?
Yes! Sure! The crowd loved it! Now that the song is officialy realesed, we are getting very nice feedback from friends and listeners.
You have been touring round the world a lot this year! What has been the best show you’ve played recently?
2021 was very special for me. I am also glad that we can play to the crowd again. I was in Mexico recently, it was really nice to play over there, the energy from the crowd is amazing. I also played in the United States, Dubai and in São Paulo (Brazil) last month, in a very nice club named Tetto Lounge.
How did you get into music production & DJing?
I started to produce music when I was 14 years old, right after I did a production course in Curitiba, Brazil. When I was 18 I moved to São Paulo to study music production at Anhembi Morumbi School, which was great for my development.
Who are some up-and-coming artists we should be keeping an eye out for?
My style today follows the mainstream songs, but I like to listen to Boris Brejcha and Noizu too.
If you could pick one artist in the world to collaborate, who would it be and why?
I would pick Alok. He has worked very hard to get Brazilian electronic dance music around the world. He is a complete artist, producer, entrepeneur and DJ, so it would be very nice to collab with him.
How do you feel your Brazilian roots play into your sound?
Brazilian bass has influenced my music, but I also listen a lot of tech house and melodic house, which I try to bring some characteristics to make my music unique.
Are there any locations or events you haven’t played yet that you would love to perform at?
I would love to perform around Europe and Asia.
Any last words for our readers?
I would like to thank the readers for being here reading my interview. I also would like to say thank you to all my listeners and friends, they are the heart of my career.
