ABOUT DJ NUTS:
DJ Nuts is the leading turntablist living in Brasil today. Born in Rio de Janeiro but currently based in Sao Paulo, as a youngster in the late eighties he became mesmerized by the rapidly increasing Sao Paulo hip hop scene. He began Djing in ‘91, during the arguably best times of hip hop as an underage mobile DJ while still at school. In 2000 he became the tuntablist champion of Brasil. As a producer he has done albums for the biggest name in brasilian hip hop, Marcello D2 (Sony Music), as well as have worked with Brasilian music legends like Gilberto Gil, Planet Hemp, Joao Donato, Trio Mocoto, O Rappa and Dom Um Romao. Though he says his number one inspiration remains Flora Purim.
In 2002 DJ Nuts was a tutor at the Redbull Music Academy in Sao Paulo. He became the main consultant and dj alongside Cut Chemist, J-Rocc, Madlib and some of Brasil’s best known percussionist for Brasilintime: Batucada com Discos – B+’s (Mochilla) sequel to the documentary Keepintime. Nuts’ release of, Cultura Copia is DJ Nuts’ first commercially available 54-track Mix CD outside of Brasil, “it is the perfect introduction to Brasilian music for those who have never experienced its diversity or for those who think they have but have never heard a Brasilian perspective…perhaps the first Brainfreeze from a third world perspective.”
His skills displayed are correlated with the wisdom of his crates making him unique in his home country and worldwide. In every set Nuts pays tribute to the music that has inspired him including obscure Brasilian funk, jazz, soul, samba, bossa nova, tropicalia, obscure american-styled funk and disco. It is with our great pleasure to start off the year with such an amazing guest to touch down at the Lapa Lounge on January 20th. Join us in celebrating DJ Nuts’ last night in Cali, before flying back home to Sao Paulo. Lets send him home right, with such a party to remember. (might we mention, for FREE!)
