To think of Sao Paulo is to see the term Concrete Jungle come to life. A city defined by the grey high rises of offices and apartment blocks that seemingly stretch out to the horizon and beyond. But when the sun goes down, well, that’s when things really start moving. There’s a serious dedication to setting new standards for what’s considered a good party in Sao Paulo with the local club circuit regularly putting on frenetic and creative nights, outdoing each other with innovative mixes, lighting design and sound systems on a weekly basis. It was a challenge we welcomed with open arms and saw us bring in a line-up perfectly designed for the dancefloor and beyond.

First up was Berlin-based producer rRoxymore, known for her ability to oscillate between classic house and psychedelia-tinged techno who collaborated with electro group Teto Preto.

Joining rRoxymore and Teto Preto in the line-up is the hugely influential Brazilian songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist Tom Ze, whose contribution to the 1960s Tropicalia movement has made him one of the most sampled artists in Brazil today. Other performances come from singer, songwriter and LGBTQ+ activist MC Linn and finally, Chicago house legend Derrick Carter bringing the night to a raucous end.
