Line up

  • Chico Correa  (DJ/producer)


Bahia-born DJ and live performance artist, Chico Correa, works with Brazilian folk music, such as coco, samba and baião rhythms, mixing melodies from Brazil's northeast with electronic grooves. His solo DJ performances build from improvised electronic loops, using step sequencers, midi overdubs and samples from organic grooves and Brazilian roots-melodies, laying down unrelenting slabs of percussion while flying in undulating riffs, phrases and manipulated sounds and layering effects into an unmitigated mashup of undeniable massivity.
