Gran Ritmos Ft. Dengue Dengue Dengue says
Gran Ritmos celebrates regional styles while finding cultural connections and sounds in new places. A culture clash where Americans make Cumbias and Latinos play Acid House.

This session of Gran Ritmos features Dengue Dengue Dengue, a Tropical Bass duo. Behind the masks are Felipe Salmon and Rafael Pereira, two producers, dj's and graphic designers from Lima-PerĂº. For their live performances they team up with Nadia Escalante (A.K.A. Vj Sixta) for a full Audiovisual Show.

DDD was born in mid-2010 and immediatly made themselves well known thanks to an impeccable audiovisual show, remixing and making mash-ups from their own tracks with old cumbias and modifying cumbia cult themes to electronic versions. All this always joined by amazing visuals and the always present masks.

In early 2011 they began to publish their first original productions, being bloggued in major and specialized music portals in USA, Europe and the UK. Their sound started to spread faster, playing many festivals in Peru and along with the "Auxiliar" Collective, started producing the TOMA! Sessions, helping to consolidate the growing and vibrant Tropical Bass movement in Lima, inviting musicians and DJs from different places to share sounds and ideas.

By 2014 the sound of DDD matured into a wider spectrum of sounds, bringing elements not only from Peru, but studying and researching other cultures and their native sounds, traveling around Europe, Asia and the Americas playing shows. Collecting sounds and ideas.

The duo released the EP "Serpiente Dorada" on Buraka Son Sistema's label ENCHUFADA, with 6 new tracks that takes their sound to a new level, touring around the world playing 3 European Tours (42 Shows) and and also playing in Cuba, Japan. Argentina, Chile, China, Brazil, Colombia,etc. playing in the most renowned festivals like Roskilde, Dour, Paleo and an amazing show at the SONAR Festival Dome. Reviewed by XLR8R as one of the best shows in the festival. They also get the honour of getting invited by the Red Bull Music Academy to do a lecture on their academy sessions in Tokyo.

PDX locals Daniela Karina (Bed of Roses, Club Tropicana, Women's Beat League) and Michael Bruce (Gran Ritmos) start things off.
