Born Rodolfo Wehba, in São Paulo, Brazil, this former dentist has been spinning house and techno music records for about a decade, working the crowds worldwide ever since his first international records got released, back in 2006.
Wehbba has been an active producer for the past decade, and has developed a very distinct style, marked by stellar production skills. His achievements as a producer can be measured by the number of respected artists who he's worked with over the years, either remixers, remixees or collaborators. Although notably and actively working with swedish legend Christian Smith, the list can be extended to the likes of Laurent Garnier, Robert Babicz, Bushwacka!, X-Press 2, Carlo Lio, Chris Lake, Samuel L Session, Funk D'Void, 16 Bit Lolitas, Sharam Jey, Valentino Kanzyani, Stephan Bodzin, 2000 And One, Kolombo, Mihalis Safras, Joseph Capriati, Coyu, Julian Sanza, to name only a few. His productions have been featured on labels like Tronic, Bedrock, Toolroom, Soma, Systematic, 100% Pure, Audiomatique, Skint, Trapez, Material, Missile, Suara and many others.
'Full Circle', Wehbba's first studio album, released by Tronic Music in 2010, was the landmark which set Wehbba's career off to a whole new level, reaching outstanding media success as well as sales and DJ support. Over the following years, he's been granted numerous spots at charts of portals like Beatport or Resident Advisor, the latter featuring Wehbba as the 52nd most charted artist in 2011.
After working on a mixed compilation, released in the end of 2012 on Toolroom Records and called 'Toolroom Knights Brazil', together with Mark Knight himself, Wehbba takes on the task of delivering a second studio album on Tronic, 'Square Two', scheduled for release in May 2013. This new project is set to raise the bar on Wehbba's discography, by displaying even more of his versatility and musicality, including an appearance from Jon Dixon and D'Sean Jones, 2/3 of the Detroit group D3, part of the legendary Underground Resistance collective, aside from many dancefloor oriented tracks, that could all make up for singles themselves.
