Ninos Du Brasil is a project whose origins and background have remained shrouded in mystery. Dedicated to a bold and unlikely mixture of noise, batucada, samba and electronic, their sporadic live appearances have already become legendary and mythological.
Be it a punk squat in Belgium or the famous Venice Biennale of Architecture, Ninos Du Brasil, without fail, rally the troops, from every walk of life, and create some of the biggest festival style parties on the dance floor. For those fortunate enough to have witnessed Ninos Du Brasil live, their stories comprise of otherworldly experiences. NDB’s condensed yet intense set is a fervent intermixture of old school techno, stadium spirit choruses, Carnival style parade celebrations unified with the physical intensity of old school hardcore shows.FACEBOOK

Vaghe Stelle (pronounced ‘vag-he stel-lay’) is an italian artist, real name Daniele Mana. His mutant electronica falls outside any pre-ordained genre, preferring to let his imagination run free in the dark from the off-world R&B romance to the pneumatic grime and lushly discordant trance sensations. Recently he has joined Nicolas Jaar’s Other People imprint with ‘Abstract Sound + Speed’, a mini-LP which draws a critical line between contemporary digital music practices and the century-old Italian Futurist movement. Also known for his appearances on Gang of Ducks, Astro:Dynamics and Aisha Devi's Danse Noire and for have been selected for the Red Bull Music Academy in 2005 in Seattle he has also recently been involved in a project organized by the British Council and headed-up by Hyperdub boss Kode9 to create ‘A Great Symphony for Torino’ . Alongside his solo work as Vaghe Stelle, Daniele also forms part of the One Circle collaborative project alongside Editions Mego’s Lorenzo Senni and A:RA, with recent releases on the UK label Left_Blank and on Italo-German Gang Of Ducks.SOUNDCLOUD
