Friday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – Brotherhood returns to Fosfobox for another edition of tech house fueled beats at Rio’s premier underground venue. Nana Torres and Ricardo Estrella welcome local and out of town talent to bring the house down as they usually due in true Rio underground fashion. Local support provided by Rafa Canholato and Skull.

Beep Dee, or Cesar Werlon, hails from Brasilia and has had an impressive career right out of the gates when he exploded out of the Brazilian music scene with his debut single released on the epic label Hot Waves, run by heavy hitters Jaimie Jones and Lee Foss. He has since released tracks on Hot Creations and many more substantial labels. He will play alone and then along with his alter ego and music partnership Fox Glove, which he performs along with fellow Brasilia born native Rmotta.
