Deep House in Slow Motion: Brazilian deep house producer Slow Motion was introduced to music by his father at a young age.
“When I was a teenager I got to know electronic music, but precisely the deep house genre,” he says. “The desire to work on music together with the entire cultural context of the state of Santa Catarina in Brazil led me to take courses in mixing production at the Aimec School which started my journey as a DJ/producer.”
He says that his sound today comes from a mixture of influences.
“I try not to label myself in a specific genre,” he says. “In my production, there will always be the presence of a beautiful vocal with strong bass lines and melodies.”
Like everyone else, Slow Motion was hit hard by the pandemic, but he endeavored to make lemonade from lemons.
“The problems in the pandemic were felt among all artists, but I tried to take advantage of this time to be close to family, structure my team and strengthen my connections even more,” he says.
His latest single is “I’m Flying.”
“Victor Lou and I have a long history of friendship,” he says. “We started our first steps in the industry together and today we share so many amazing experiences. Sometimes due to the difference in our respective sounds we struggle to collaborate, but with ‘I’m Flying’ we managed to unite very well and express our sonic identities perfectly.”
Looking ahead, Slow Motion is aiming to kickstart his international career in 2022.
“I hope to be present at major festivals in the U.S. next year and kick off my first tour as well in the states,” he says.
