BBC’s Essential Mix series is a mainstay series in the world of electronic music. Many of dance music’s biggest names from Paul Oaken Field and Carl Cox, to Fisher and Duke Dumont have graced the Radio 1’s airwaves with timeless mixes, and one of favorite artists of late, Vintage Culture, just joined the club.
The Brazilian producer has been on an absolute tear the past year or two, with his dynamic beats garnering praise from the biggest names around the world. This essential mix catches VC in a prime state. His transitions are effortless, his remixes sound completely natural, and he masterfully manipulates the energy throughout the mix. This is two hours of finely tuned high octane dance music with some percussive spice.
We’ve been tracking the steady rise of Vintage Culture, and he’s just achieved another career milestone when he recently signed to CAA, one of the most prolific creative agencies.
