When did you start making music?
I started getting into music in a serious way when I was 12. My mom was an opera singer and my father, too, was a musician and worked in the industry, so I started taking piano lessons as a little boy, but it didn’t stick at first. I tried organ, oboe, choir, and drums, but it wasn’t until I got a guitar in my hand around 12 that my passion for music took hold in earnest. By 15 years of age, I was playing in punk bands, studying classical guitar, taking theory lessons, returned to the piano, and got really involved with computers, midi, and early synths. From then on, music continued to be my life’s obsession: writing; recording; touring; studying composition, audio production, and classical guitar at university, etc.
Brazilian electronica duo, Database, recently premiered their newest EP ‘Another Love’ on THUMP and their debut album 'Vivid Expostion’ is due for release in April on Life On Planes Records. Lucio and and Yuri of Database curated a Collection for us featuring some of their favorite ReverbNation artists and gave us the 411 on how they met, what the Brazilian dance scene is like, and more!
How did you guys meet?
We met in school, we were about 5 years old.
What’s the dance scene like right now in Brazil and how would you compare it to the scene in the US or Europe?
I would say we have one of the best scenes in the world, we have an island called Florianopolis, which we could compare to Ibiza, we have 6 of the best clubs in the top 100 in the world, the biggest festivals, and so many Brazilian artists are getting big! We probably have the best dance scene in the world.
