Brazilians at the dirty end of electro-house
Who: Eduardo, 25, and Marcus, 23, from Belo Horizonte, Brazil
Sounds Like: Dubstep-inflected electro-house at a psy-trance rave
While Dirtyloud’s music may be a mix of the filthiest elements of electro-house and dubstep, according to one half of the duo their sound has its roots in Brazil’s thriving psy-trance scene.
“Psy-trance was getting really big in Belo Horizonte (their home city) and I wanted to start to DJ but I couldn’t find the records, so I made them myself”, says Eduardo Nasciamento, making psy-trance production sound as simple as putting a copy of City Of God in the DVD player.
A chance encounter with local electro-house big-wig Marcus Campos at a friend’s studio led to a move away from the genre – and the formation of Dirtyloud.
“A friend asked us to play at a party he was putting on, so we made seven tracks in seven days in the run-up,” says Eduardo. A set to 3,000 people later, and Dirtyloud were well on the way to the electro-house big league.
An invite to DJ with Excision in LA saw the duo embrace the gnarlier end of dubstep, and Dirtyloud’s trademark sound was born. “We weren’t really meant to play, as we only had tourist visas but it changed our sound forever,” Eduardo recalls.
With number ones in both the dubstep and electro-house charts on Beatport and playing to tens of thousands of people across the world, it looks like flouting the immigration laws has paid off.
Dirtyloud’s next single, ‘Burn It’ is out early 2012 on Dim Mak
