“Dynamically, it is a roller coaster ride. From beginning to end, the mixtape builds and breaks in every genre you could imagine. While listening, it’s hard not to hear everything from Classic to Psychedelic to Prog Rock to late 90’s Hip-Hop to Dance Music. The composition is truly unique in it’s style. Teaming up with DJ Pone on the decks, DVNO captures a sound that isn’t really prevalent anymore. It breaks every cliché of the electronic genre right now. It’s rebellious without even trying.”

Catching up with DVNO:

1. Where in the world is DVNO ?

I was in DVNOLANDIA for a while (Divinolândia is a municipality in the state of São Paulo in Brazil). Now, I’m back and I’m locked in a basement somewhere in Paris, from dusk till dawn, polishing songs and writing down lyrics for my forthcoming album while not spinning back to back with So-Me in the sweet moisture of a club . (We have that sort of monthly party called Manigance going on here and there)

2. What have you been cooking up in the lab ?

Gifs, Polaroids, Silly Drawings, making babies or drinking Bourbon and Japanese Whisky.
I also started training as a mentalist under the supervision of XDR. It seems to help working with other talented people when you can’t barely read music sheets. Silky Skills required !

3. What is the deal with this 2nd mixtape ?

DVNOLANDIA is a much larger spectrum of genre that you might have already heard in the previous mixtape : Moonlighting. It’s a compilation of about twenty new songs and catchy riffs with frantic transitions. Dynamically, it is a roller coaster ride. From beginning to end, the mixtape builds and breaks in every genre you could imagine, from Classic to Psychedelic to Prog Rock to late 90’s Hip-Hop to Dance music.
Teaming up with DJ Pone on the decks, I tried to capture a unique sound that isn’t really prevalent anymore.

4. What music are you currently loving?

I’m really into this song rework by Xavier for Busy P’s new release ft. Andrew Woodhead. I also like Foxygen and Affaire Classée By Chateau MarmonT ft. Alka. I’ve Been listening to a lot of LIL B, Cassie, Pusha T, and a bunch of Harry Fraud productions and some Grand Royal oldies as well.

5. Future releases/collaborationss/viral vids/.jpgs/.gifs?

Been caught Duckfacing along with parisian friends for Surface To Air eyewear Lookbook. I also have this new remix I made for Birdy Nam Nam (already available on their GETO BIRD mixtape) which was supposed to be released any time soon (maybe on OWSLA who knows). I’m already working on a 3rd mixtape with lots of new material… Top priority is still my album in the making which is a different path and a bit secret for now.
