São Paulo has so much to offer being the most populous city in the Southern Hemisphere and the wealthiest city in Brazil. Although not only known as the country's financial hub, São Paulo also promises beautiful architecture, a crazy nightlife, and lively people. We call on duo DJs/producers Alibi to give us the low down on this awesome city and show us what it has to experience.
Level 2 and DJ Chap joined forces to form Brazilian drum and bass duo, Alibi, a DJ/producer duo that has quickly established themselves on the Brazilian drum and bass scene. The two have amalgamated their signature sounds to push the boundaries of the genre and capture new audiences, growing in popularity, the pair have recently mixed on the iconic 'Planet V Drum & Bass Vol 2' whilst also working on their second project with legendary V Recordings.
"Hornets" is Alibi's latest project with V. This dynamic EP explores the dark and lighter sides of their sounds, with tracks featuring deep sounds and high step rhythms that are exploring sound extensions and cemented their influential place in the drum and bass scene.
