Combining the sounds of techno, acid, disco, house and electro, São Paulo-based DJ, producer, curator and label/agency boss Amanda Mussi works hard to bring something fresh and new to the dance-floor.

Amanda has taken her sound on the road to many cities around Brazil and the world, like Asunción (Paraguay) where she grew up, New York’s infamous and best-regarded parties Unter and Jack Dept., Chile, Argentina, Stockholm, Moscow’s Mutabor,, Budapest’s LARM club, and to Berlin at Buttons & Pornceptual, and for the second time at Berghain, on the main floor.
She has been releasing music in the past 2 years working with her Paraguayan family from LPZ records, Renato Cohen’s Massa Records, The Lady Machine’s Unterwegs and just launched her new label Macro in collaboration with her partner Ananda, where they’re having a monthly residency on The Lot Radio, besides she is also running her monthly show Aeróbika, on São Paulo’s Veneno Radio.
