Elétrico is more than an electronic music festival. It’s an outdoor experience of music, art, and technology.

PREVIOUS EDITIONS

LINEUP

Maria Callapez

Having had a first taste of elétrico in last year’s warm-up version, Maria Callapez was an obvious choice for this year’s edition of the festival. With a solid background in classical music, and notoriously careful with her work, Maria Callapez’s sound sails somewhere between Ambient and Deep Techno both as a DJ and as a producer. Extraordinarily gifted and confident for someone of her ripe age, she has spent the year dazzling her audiences with both thumping, powerful techno and abstract ambient symphonies. This ability to fully absorb her audiences in musical oblivion has made her one of the most exciting names for the future of Portuguese electronic music, and if there was ever a stage that merited her visit, we’d like to think it’s the one we’ve set up for her, here in Porto.

David Moreira

Returning to our roster of DJs after last year’s warm-up edition is David Moreira, who incidentally is also our copywriter and loathes autobiographies. Practically born in the club scene (his mother owned a nightclub and several bars throughout the 90s), he transitioned from the dance track to the DJ booth relatively late in life, but having encountered that passion, he never let go again. Completely devoted to the Afro-American culture that originated house and techno, he constantly exalts the importance of Detroit, and it is from this city, with some touches of Chicago, Berlin and Rome, that he finds the gems that fill the record bag that he wants to share with you.

TIAGO CARVALHO

Tiago Carvalho was born in Porto, graduated in Sound Design, and since 2005 he follows closely the world clubbing movement and is well integrated in Porto’s underground community. Among the international stars with whom he already shared the cabin, we highlight some of his greatest influences, such as Fumiya Tanaka, Delano Smith, Moodymann and Nicolas Lutz. Without prejudices in genres wise, he doesn’t do any favors and plays deep and well-designed music. With him he brings the perfect blend, among the coolest pumps and many timeless classics. He has been in the RDZ Music Agency since 2014 and is a local hero at Industria Club.

Francesco Del Garda

In another debut for elétrico, this edition will feature the legendary Francesco Del Garda. The DJ’s DJ if there ever was one, the man with the most coveted record bag in the business transcends genres and expectations so frequently that copywriters cower away in fear of labelling him or confining his sound to a musical genre. What you shouldn’t expect is any incoherence or absurdity in his sound, because it’s the work of a meticulous mason, and judging by the reactions of his crowds and the dramatic inflation of any record he touches, the construction materials he pulls out of his bag must be pure gold.

DJ Koze

We’re thrilled to welcome DJ Koze to elétrico. How to summarize a career that since 1989 has seen his writing, arrangement, and production present in well over 100 records? It’s an ungrateful task to describe the genius behind tracks like XTC, Knock Knock!, Pick Up and ground-breaking remixes of Caribou, Herbert, Moderat and Mount Kimbie to name a few. A pop icon in his own right, with credentials as solid as any king of the underground, it is safe to say that there is a whole world to be found in DJ Koze’s music, and we need only enjoy the journey…

Seth Troxler

After blowing away the crowds that hit the town’s Industria Club to see him in February, Seth Troxler returns to Porto for a much-awaited re-launch of elétrico. Throughout the world there is maybe a handful of DJ’s with the creative dimension and freedom of Seth Troxler, equally, it’s difficult to picture anyone with the charisma and sheer power of attraction that he commands. A monumental headliner always committed to providing memorable shows, he’s another name that leaves no room for doubts, this edition of elétrico is one you can’t miss.

Catarina Silva

This year elétrico hosts Catarina Silva, a local hero rapidly turning herself into a household name in Portugal’s electronic music scene. Dedicated to music of varying structures and colours, her selections are often surprising and capricious in style and influenced by techno as well as tribal and deep house. By her own admission, music is a system of symbols, where each is free to interpret the message being conveyed. 2022 has been her year of consolidation in the club scene and now our time has come to hear her out.

Diana Oliveira

Diana Oliveira was born in Lisbon, grew up in Braga, but it was in the underground circuit of Porto that this ‘Kadupul’ flowered. Diana is the striker at RDZ Music Agency, resident DJ at Industria Club, and its exquisite taste, coupled with the charismatic presence, take us on an intimate journey, from the most sensitive and profound fields of House to the most hypnotic sounds and grooves of Techno. In July, at the Elétrico garden.

Roza Terenzi

This year we welcome Roza Terenzi to elétrico for the very first time. Packed with momentum and skyrocketing demand for her music, Roza Terenzi has always aimed her sound at the cosmos, her sublime and otherworldly music being a bridge between what occurs here on earth and what we imagine happens beyond. A force to be reckoned with behind the decks and one of the busiest artists around, she’s found some time to come to Porto, where we expect her to make us pack our bags and board her ship towards another interstellar experience.

Priku

Priku is another grand debut at this year’s elétrico. With a minimalist sound forged in the Sunwaves festival that brought him to prominence, Priku holds an enviable reputation as one of the world’s foremost maestro-composers of summer melodies. With the same curious complexity that has become a trademark of labels like All Inn Black or a:rpia:r, Priku channels the intensely reflective but inherently blissful vibe of the Romanian scene. A perfect fit for our party at the park.

Raresh

One of the new additions to this year’s elétrico is Raresh. For more than a decade, he’s been one of the frontrunners of the influential minimal scene coming out of Bucharest. Known for hypnotic mixes that slowly but surely envelop his public in a dream state, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone capable of the work this artist does with two good turntables and a mixer, that’s why we are glad to be able to invite you to witness his work first hand.

Kink

We’re delighted to welcome Kink to this year’s edition of Elétrico. With his thumping live performances where he pushes his gear to the limit, Kink never fails to deliver unique dance journeys to his crowds of followers, and this is exactly the experience we want you to have at Elétrico..

Luisa

Another highlight of this year’s elétrico is the grand debut of Luisa. Judging not only by her hectic schedule but also by the quality and popularity of her mixes, you’d be forgiven for thinking she’s been around for long. Though firmly established in the vanguard of Lisbon’s music scene, where her careful selections can be heard in all the major clubs as well as her Prospects show on collect radio, Luisa is a relatively recent phenomenon. Following up on a year of growth and memorable shows, her appearance at elétrico is an event for which we hold great expectations.

Klin Klop Live Band

Aquecida que está depois de uma estreia extasiante na versão “warm-up” que fizemos o ano passado, a banda liderada por Inês Meira volta a marcar presença no elétrico. Uma fusão de várias escolas musicais, e acima de tudo uma reunião de virtuosos, a banda de Klin Klop representa uma ultrapassagem de fronteiras da música contemporânea Portuguesa, e neste elétrico vão demonstrar mais uma vez porque motivo são uma aposta sólida para o presente, e futuro.

Moullinex

Lisbon based DJ, musician and producer Moullinex thrives in intersections: science and art, spontaneity and formalism, organic and artificial, isolation and community. This idea crystallized in music that can perfectly live within the boundaries of the dancefloor and still allow for deep introspection on headphones. From melancholic electronic textures to exuberant house and disco, his productions have seen him being praised by his peers and audiences globally.
Luis Clara Gomes spent his formative years looking at the stars. From drawing galactic maps and sketches of imaginary spacecraft as a child to doing research in astronomy as an adult, his obsession with science was the stepping stone into electronic music, where he first stumbled into electronic soundtrack maestros such as Vangelis and Giorgio Moroder and later Air, Stevie Wonder and brazilian MPB.
Under the Moullinex alias he first started doing remixes for Cut Copy, Sebastien Tellier, Royksopp and Robyn, among many more, while consistently releasing quality originals through his own label Discotexas, alongside Xinobi, his partner in crime. Three albums ensued, “Flora”, “Elsewhere” and “Hypersex”, establishing Moullinex as a versatile, subtle and multi-layered producer.

Kruder & Dorfmeister

Peter Kruder and Richard Dorfmeister comprise one of the great new additions to Elétrico’s lineup. Their story is familiar to anyone who recalls that magic era where their iconic DJ-Kicks mix would play in any record shop worth its speakers (it still does) or when it was hard to find any car that wasn’t blaring out G-stoned, two of the gorgeous compilations these artists put together that helped to define the zeitgeist of the mid-to-late 90s. Since then, records were declared dead only to resurrect shortly after, and MP3 players meant the 3mm jack cable replaced the pens we kept in our cars and back pockets to unwind tapes, but these two never stopped. In Portugal, they’ve helped shape an entire generation of artists and music lovers, that joined the hordes of people that followed them everywhere they went. In July we bid them welcome to our garden, and we can’t wait.

Floating Points

London based musician, composer and producer Sam Shepherd began Floating Points in 2008 upon the release of several white-label singles. Shepherd formed Eglo Records in 2009 with his own early highlights for the label including cuts ‘Vacuum Boogie’ and ‘ARP3’ leading to increasingly spacious and musical releases ‘Sais’, ‘King Bromeliad’, and ‘Nuits sonores’.
Shepherd released his breakout, esteemed debut ‘Elaenia’ in 2015 on his label Pluto Records. He composed and recorded the album, which bridges the gap between dance music and his formative classical roots. 2017 saw Shepherd put out ‘Reflections – Mojave Desert’, a short film and soundtrack featuring tracks recorded in the Mojave Desert, and ‘Ratio’; an epic track bordering on 19-minutes that harks back to his earlier dance floor focussed releases. Shepherd followed in 2019 with the equally lauded ‘Crush’ which earned him Best New Music reviews (Pitchfork) and led to his biggest headline show to date at London’s Printworks.
‘Promises’, Floating Points’ latest album, is a continuous 46 minute piece composed by Shepherd featuring Pharoah Sanders and the London Symphony Orchestra. Released in March 2021, it has been hailed as “one of the greatest modern jazz albums” (Resident Advisor) and received critical acclaim worldwide from the likes of The New York Times and The Guardian.
Shepherd has nurtured the Floating Points name into one renowned for ambitious and forward-thinking DJ sets. His love for discovering records from around the world is reflected in his eclectic DJ sets which range from an hour to all night long. The “explosive” moments during one of his sets usually occur when he throws together unexpected genres, for the very simple reason that he gets excited about wanting to “hear this record, really loud, now!” and then puts the needle on.

Rui Vargas

Rui Vargas is once again our guest at elétrico. Present in every edition, describing him as an artist can be a daunting task for anyone working in this area in Portugal. For many DJs, Club and festival goers and promoters alike, he has long been the pre-eminent figurehead of the electronic scene in Portugal. One would be wrong to assume he occupies this throne merely as a reward for his longevity, because beyond his tireless work and chameleon-like adaptability is an attribute that only a handful of DJ’s in the world can emulate, the ability to generate unforgettable moments. Will it be your first-time seeing Rui Vargas on stage? Chances are, it won’t, but one thing we know for sure is it won’t be like the last, it never is.
