Ahead of his London DJ set @ Muevete - Notting Hill Arts Club on 20th September
Esmeraldo Marques, known as "ChicoCorrea", is a pioneer of a fusion of Northeast music and electronic music. He represents a new generation of Brazilian Bass music producers, focusing his artistic creativity between the oral traditions of his land and the low end frequencies of the sound systems.
Blending 808, analog synthesizers, with roots rhythms from Brazil like Cocos de Roda and Emboladas, his sets are a mix of his own productions and a mashup with samples he may find some hours before the gig. Always improvising and reconstructing the set each gig, in a live electronics format.
