Dear Deer / Bassic Records - Brazil
Exploring uncharted territories of techno, Brasilian sound explorer Gabriel Moraes approaches his expeditions in a noticeably unique way. Sitting restlessly between the heated Berlin style, progressive and a good measure of rave, the tone is catching on, eyes widen and ears prick when the robust sound rumbles through. Causing a serious stir, Gabriel’s music has been played and praised by Eric Prydz, Solomun, ANNA, D-nox, Victor Ruiz, Coyu and many more of the world’s most influential artists. It became clear that people were recognizing this soaring act, with Eric Prydz vocalizing his support for Gabriel in a radio interview. A keen collaborator, Gabriel’s recent works have included vocalist Haptic and producer Rafael Cerato. 2018 saw remixes of Gabriel by Dusty Kid, Citizen Kain, Niko Schwind and Boy Next Door, with previous years involving KALIL, Jiggler and Victor Enzo. Gabriel wearing the shoes of a remixer himself has put his touch on productions by artists such as KALIL, TAYA, Trockensaft, Vitor Munhoz, Rocksted, with his remix of Ark-E-Tech & Käse Kochen’s “We Wombats” on Bassic Records globally premiered by Victor Ruiz at ADE 2017.
