Fabricio & Prolla2.jpg

Headlining Movement in Detroit this year was an incredible opportunity. To make my set extra special I did some major crate digging and hand selected 7 exclusive tracks by up-and-coming artists from around the world. Track 1/7 comes from Brazilian DJ's, Fabricio Peçanha & Prolla with their track "Crushing Down". 

Get to know the artists in our exclusive interview series below.

Fabricio Peçanha:

How long have you been creating music and what artist inspired you to start making tracks?

I have been making music for about 10 years. The artists that inspire me are Claude VonStroke, Green Velvet, Tiga, Depeche Mode, Richie Hawtin.

How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?

I discovered Claude VonStroke's work a long time ago in San Francisco and I’ve been following it since then.

What species of bird best describes you and why?

I think Owl, because I love night time. 

Biggest misconception about dance music?

I think that the biggest misconception is when some people connect electronic music to drugs.

Prolla:

How long have you been creating music and what artist inspired you to start making tracks?

I have been creating music for the past 15 years, some of these years with less intensity, but always seeking my development as a producer. At first I was surprised by artists like Dubfire, Stephan Bodzin, Gui Boratto, Eric Prydz and Booka Shade, just to name a few.

How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?

In the last 5 years I've been a little away from the electronic music market and I came back to find out last year, that's when I listened to some releases from the label. The fact that Brazilian artists such as Bruno Furlan and Dj Glen are releasing on Dirtybird has also added to my curiosity.

What species of bird best describes you and why?

A Hawk, becaouse I consider myself a strong and independent person, I also care for freedom and like a creative environment.

Biggest misconception about dance music?

Underestimate other artists and styles. Respect above all.
