Zuco 103, the patriarchs of the Brazilectro and the trailblazers of the Tropical Bass, are still on edge after 20 years. This year, Zuco 103 will focus on several new releases and a club and festival tour.
Lilian Vieira (vocals), Stefan Schmid (keys) and Stefan Kruger (drums) started experimenting with Brazilian sounds, combined with dance and dub, as Rec.A in 1999. Schmid came up with the term 'Brazilectro' as a description for their music, which then became an international concept and a scene of kindred artists and deejays. International success followed quickly, as well as well received albums, and collaborations with a.o. Lee 'Scratch' Perry. Anno 2019 sounds Zuco 103 closer than ever: the wild mix of influences has deepened into an intense 'audio storm', which still live the halls bounce of energy!
