The 13-story structure, shaped like buildings on the main stage, has projections accompanied by robotic sounds, as if it were a modernization of the classic landscape. “Metropolis”from 1927. The contrast was evident when compared to the first dawn of the Só Track Boa festival, in which the outline of the city received a cyberpunk-style bombardment of neon lights, like the movie “Blade Runner”.
The most anticipated headliner on the last day of the electronic music festival, which had its biggest edition since 2016, was Ukrainian duo Artbat, a track phenomenon around the world. His show started in Interlagos with the remix of “The Age Of Love”, a techno classic, reproduced in a drier tone.
The duo was successful in Brazil after a performance on the Pão de Açúcar cable car, in Rio de Janeiro, in 2019. When they started “Horizon”, their most successful production and most melodic tone, they were applauded by the public. The euphoria reached its peak shortly after with the remix “Return to Oz”, which occupies the first place on the duo’s Spotify, with more than 65 million plays.
While on the first morning of the festival, Brazilians were the main attractions on stage, on Saturday it was the turn of international DJs and the more conceptual and reflective melodic techno genre. The main stage got pumped up early in the evening with Italian duo Fideles and their remix of Pink Floyd’s “Hey You”.
Joris Voorn’s rawest and darkest sound arrived at dawn with fireworks. The Dutchman is recognized as one of the forerunners of melodic techno. He rocked the biggest lawn in Interlagos with remixes of “With or Without you”, by the band U2 and “Miss You” by Oliver Tree, hit on TikTok.
Yotto started his expected set with a remix of “Say it Right”, by Nelly Furtado, another hit on the Chinese social network. Lasers and deeper beats gave a triumphant start to the Finnish DJ, known worldwide for his progressive, deep and melancholic melodies.
At the same time, the Brazilian Bhaskar performed on the Garden stage, the most danceable of the late night attractions, with infectious tech house beats and Brazilian bass —a genre shared with his twin brother, Alok.
In the beginning of the night, the Danish Ashibah had already filled the lawn with a mixture of rhythms and intense vocals. Known for singing her own set, she was succeeded by LP Giobbi, an American who risked a more danceable track with a funk remix of “Combinação Perfeita”, by MC TH and “Don’t You Need Somebody to Love”, by Jefferson Airplane .
Despite the celebrated international attractions, Brazilians were received with equal euphoria in the two days of the festival. Vintage Culture, creator of the event and famous for its contagious sets, was the success of the first day, surpassing the English Duke Dumont and the French Dombresky in terms of public.
Illusionize, another national highlight of the first dawn, paid homage to the beginnings of house music, with a remix of “My House”, by Chuck Roberts, from 1987.
Victor Lou and Mochakk hypnotized a legion of fans on the secondary stage of the event, which ended up getting small with the capacity. Raised in Goiânia, land of the sertanejo, Lou tends to draw crowds to listen to his “desande” mixes, a mixture of tech and bass house with other Brazilian rhythms, such as funk.
Vintage Culture still closed the festival at dawn, a task that on Saturday was in charge of the Ukrainian DJ Korolova, who even mixed together with Vintage in the early hours of the morning to fill the absence of the headliner Meduza.
The Italian trio, a world highlight on the house music tracks since the release of “Piece of Your Heart” in 2019, announced that they would not be present at the festival just 16 hours before taking the stage, due to a wave of flight cancellations from British Airways company.
The change in plans contributed to the focus of the spotlight on Brazilian DJs. It wasn’t a problem for the energetic fans who enjoyed, non-stop, 32 hours of partying at the Interlagos Circuit.
