DAVID TABALIPA // Tabalipa began playing at 94, shaking the small alternative scene of the city of Niterói. Always a fan of black music, the ramifications of electronic black music soon won – his DJing hip-hop absorbed electrofunk, the trip-hop and breakbeat as a natural evolution. This highly danceable blend captured the ears across the bridge and David Tabalipa was invited to play at parties that marked the Rio. Royal Soul Records representative for Rio de Janeiro/RJ.
JOCA VIDAL // Works as a DJ and producer since 2002, when he took the drum’n’bass party “Febre” at Casa da Matriz in Rio de Janeiro.

CUPCAKE PROJECT // It’s the Nu Disco side project produced by the Brazilian Rafael Araujo. Known music producer from the south of Brazil since 1999. CPCK was Cupcake Project when it first started. Lots of funky elements, thick bassline and late 70′s/early 80′s influence take the tracks beyond disco-ish vocals and strings and show you how real disco house should sound like!
NIKO BORJA // Started off with House and Latin influenced electronic music, moved to Brasil and lived in São Paulo for a year, where I broadened my interests and became a more eclectic DJ. Been producing and have kept it underground, mostly because of a lack of promotion for my productions and DJ skills. Royal Soul Records representative for Bogota / Colombia.
