Friday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Me Gusta is back at Fosfobox tonight with a special one off appearance from Rio’s very own international success DJ Kammy. Born in Rio, but based in Berlin, “The Lady Machine” has been rocking European dancefloors for many years now, dubbing her one of the best to come out of Brazil.

Beautiful and charismatic, Kammy has also accumulated a deep knowledge of music which she combines perfectly with her precise mixing technique. With an impressive musical background and extremely refined musical taste, she’s able to create remarkable techno sets. Her amazing versatility blends a perfect atmosphere with the dancefloor and a repertoire that explores different electronic music genres, from techno variations to electro and full synth sounds.

“I never limit myself to one style. A quality sound, with attitude that is dance floor oriented, is what I try to convey in my sets”, explains Kammy.
