PSYCHO FROM PERU
DENGUE DENGUE DENGUE! is an audiovisual duo born in mid-2010 in Lima, Peru and is conformedby FELIPE SALMON and RAFAEL PEREIRA, who were already working together on other projects, both part of the Peruvian based COLECTIVO AUXILIAR. The name DENGUE DENGUE DENGUE! comes from Enrique Lynch’s vinyl, who played a rhythm called DENGUE. The project catched from the start and made itself well known thanks to an impeccable audiovisual show, half dj set and half live show, remixing and making mash-ups from their own tracks with old cumbias and modifying cumbia cult themes to electronic versions. All of it joined by amazing visuals and the always present masks.In early 2011 they began to publish their first productions, being blogged in major and specialized music portals, in countries like Mexico, USA, France and England amongst others. They begun to sound harder everytime, playing in major events and festivals, sharing the stage with international artists such as MAD PROFESSOR, BOMBA STEREO, MANU CHAO and CALLE13, and also having the honor of playing with legendary Peruvian cumbia groups such as THE SHAPIS and LOS DESTELLOS.
Along with the COLECTIVO AUXILIAR, they started producing the TOMA! parties, helping to consolidate the growing and vibrant fusion Tropical movement in Lima, Peru, inviting musicians and DJs from different places to share sounds and experiences.
