Rafael Noronha (Lo Kik Records, BRAZIL)
One Track Mike (CPT)
A quiet side street, a deep resonating vibration emanating from within, a door disappearing into a dark room and opening onto a carnival-like escapade of colour, energy and rumbling sound, where Amazonian beauties gyrate in unison to rhythms you only imagined. This is the subversive, subtropical thunder of a night out in sultry Brazil. Shape up on your techno samba Gringo; the jungle is coming to you...
Tech !t Or Leave !t Productions, in collaboration with Blunder Productions, joins forces with Lo Kik Records to bring their unique label party ‘Lo Kik Nights’ to local shores. The original event series has been running the world amok from its home in Brazil’s capital Sao Paulo, to Miami, Russia, and now it comes to South Africa for an exclusive 3 city tour, with label head Rafael Noronha.
LO KIK RECORDS >>> RAFAEL NORONHA
Lo Kik Records greeted the world in 2007, slamming Brazil’s epically festive dance culture and talented muso’s onto a global platform. Headed by Rafael Noronha; the label is all about layered music with a fresh and dynamic soundscape, inspired by a tropical-edged attitude and the colourful jungly chaos of Brazil.
Covering the genres of house, techno, tech-house, minimal and all the juicy variations in between, Lo Kik captures the essence of South American culture and gives it digital freedom to the world! Top Brazilian artists like Rafael, Re Dupre, Glocal, Andre Bastos and Gui Boratto have waxed the wires with over 50 chart topping releases.
Rafael’s enduring journey into dj’ing and production started 8 years ago and he’s quickly become renowned for his powerful, innovative sets and impressive mixing skills; stealing the limelight at the Brazilian ‘Dj Sound Awards’ in 2005 and 2006. In 2008 he claimed the award for Best Dj and is now considered one of Brazil’s best dj’s!
The Lo Kik Nights event series has been running the world amok from its home in Brazil’s capital Sao Paulo, to Miami, Russia, and now it comes to South Africa for an exclusive three city label party doused with enough Amazonian love and lambada to make you feel like your dancing in the jungle yourself.
