TJL 001 - 2020
São Paulo’s own, Cesar Pierri ( @cesrv ), is one of Brazil’s most trusted and versatile producers, widely respected in the electronic and hip hop scenes throughout Brazil and beyond. He is co- founder of the label Beatwise Recordings, specializing in experimental production, and resident DJ of seminal beats & bass party Colab011.
Earlier this year, CESRV spearheaded and produced the EP “BRIME” alongside rappers Febem and Fleezus. The project mixed UK Grime with Brazilian Baile Funk and was a big hit on the underground scene, generating respect and new fans throughout Brazil, the UK and the US. He’s also released 2 Footwork inspired EPs this year “Bela Vista” and “Twenny Twenny” which has garnered radio and press support from BBC, KCRW, Okayplayer, Bandcamp and others.
“The Underground” EP is CESRV’s final solo EP for 2020. São Paulo in the early 2000s was a perfect place for the Drum n Bass scene. The city had tons of clubs with well known DJs from all over the world playing music for a sweaty and enthusiastic crowd. The 4-track release is a crossover between contemporary electronic music and 90s Dn’B / Jungle rooted in São Paulo’s electronic music scene. The EP will also be released on 12” 45RPM vinyl via Brooklyn based record label Tijolo Records.
