The Ego Beatport


TheEgo is a 23-year-old Brazilian born Drum and Bass producer/artist based in Santiago of Chile.

He started playing keyboards at the tender age of 11, and with the course of time he has picked up the guitar, electric bass and the mic. Playing in numerous live bands TheEgo got frustrated dealing with other peoples egos and the disruptions that were caused, so he started composing his own tunes.

He got into electronic music 6 years ago, flipping through different styles like disco funk, house, r&b, hip hop and minimal. Then one day he went for a walk in the Jungle and never came out.

TheEgos influences are wide, starting from the bossanova wax that his parents used to play at home when he was a child, to the funky vibe of 70s film soundtracks, passing through hip hop, house, r&b, acid jazz and many more.

The most distinguishable elements of his sound are funky South American guitar riffs; Rhodes piano chords and his own sun-drenched soulful vocals. He also loves to get other artists to collaborate with him and get their vibe into mix.

Apart from making his own tunes, TheEgo has been remixing several artists like Riovolt (IRMA Records, Italy), Phoneheads (Buddy Records, Germany), Sabrina Malheiros (FarOut Records, UK).

His work has been featured in several Top Tens at Drum And Bass Arena. TheEgos tracks are being played by headline Djs worldwide (Bryan Gee, Dj Patife, Dj Rome, Dj Roots, and many others).

Now days he is working with Dj Roots (Booh/Innerground/BluSaphir) spending time between Chile and Brazil producing soulful Drum and Bass. Expect some new tracks from them to drop in late 2005 thought the labels Buddy Records and BluSaphir.
