Buenos Aires, Argentina
This broadcast of Field Reports: South America features fresh selections + an in-depth interview with Buenos Aires based producer/DJ and all-around good vibes party man Ema Dobao. We arrived right in the thick of hot summer madness in a city mostly known for its nocturnal culture, thumping clubs and driving techno until now.
Dobao throws a party called Highlife with like-minded co-founders and record diggers. He's been on a funk odyssey for the last few years pushing a love of house & disco on the scene and inviting international like-minded artists to help shake things up. Slowly but surely Dobao and Highlife have gained a following and upon our arrival we attended a wild, colorful day party he did with Amsterdam's Redlight Radio. The energy was electric. We had a swell chat with Dobao about funk music permeating the dance music culture in Argentina, his productions and journey as a DJ for the last 15 years.
