Marina Sarno aka Urubu is a multimedia artist and DJ from Salvado de Bahia. Her musical research is at the intersection of electronic music, regionalism and Brazilian folklore. As a dj she develops a dialogue between these heterogene worlds: the scholar, the technical, organic and popular, mixing electronic music, lambada, european avant-garde, electro-candomble, lo-fi synths with maculele.
Rico Loop has been live producing for 10 years and still loves the flow of organic, hand cut loops. Some call it live looping but actually it's like action painting with music. If a DJ would work in the speed of sound, the live looper works in light-speed. He can take any idea instantly into his production. This creates a powerful flow of life and it directs your output. if one doesn't give up control one can get stuck in boring repetitions. Live looping is a great teacher because no mistakes are allowed and if they happen you have to work with them. Sometimes its exactly the mistakes which makes the groove. Electronic music can be cold and sometimes feels empty because of the quantization and static beats are missing the breath of humanness. Thats why live producing is a wonderful alternative and maybe inspires the world of DJ's to appreciate hand made music again.
