The veteran Amazon collective Cotonete comes together for its 10th birthday, which will be celebrated on October 11th at Studio Pub, one of the coolest spots in Belem. This is the group that pioneered electronic music clubs and raves in the state of Para, taking DJs such as Marky, Renato Cohen and Murphy to play in the extreme north of Brazil for the first time and opening up a vibrant space for electronic music in that part of the globe.
Founding member Benjamin Ferreira is one of the highlights: having just returned to Brazil after thrilling crowds in London with the likes of Ashley Beedle and Atjazz, he can easily be seen spinning decks at some of the hottest clubs in the country, such as D-Edge, Vegas and Pacha Sao Paulo. In 2010, he has also been nominated as upcoming DJ for the DJ Mag Brazil award, and has also been cited as a DJ "to watch out for" on VIP magazine.
