Originally from São Paulo, Brazil, Carol Ferraz developed her love affair with music at a young age and grew up listening to rock music, an influence from her guitarist brother who taught her about intelligent, artistic music from the likes of Joe Satriani, Greg Howe, Steve Vai, and bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. She was later exposed to the underground electronic dance music scene in Brazil, where she explored the best of techno, progressive house, and progressive psytrance as well as had the opportunity to discover unparalleled outdoor events and warehouse parties. This music genre and scene quickly became her favorite form of entertainment, and Carol immersed herself in the work of DJs, producers, and bands from which she drew inspiration: Sasha, John Digweed, Dnox and Beckers, Carl Cox, Guy J, The Orb, Orbital, Underworld, and Depeche Mode, to name a few.
Upon arriving to New York City in 2005, Carol Ferraz casually began learning how to DJ and advanced her craft to the next level in 2009 when she started a residency at the famed Sullivan Room. She became involved with the Positive Pressure parties in 2011 simultaneously, with a year of DJ residency overlap at both. Positive Pressure propelled Carol's friendship with Gavin Stephenson, who recognized her talent and precision with music and ultimately brought her along when he co-founded ebb + flow music with Iman Rizky in 2013. As a member of the ebb + flow family of artists today, Carol is a principal organizer and resident of the Sunday Reboot events, and has been instrumental in coaching others on the art of DJing. She has shared the stage with Hoj, Naveen G, Corey Baker, and her own colleagues, Justin Marchacos and Kellam, among others, and performed on the ebb + flow stage at the Gratitude Migration festival in 2015 and 2016. Revered for her technical know-how and perfectionism in mixing, Carol is masterful at blending a wide range of house rhythms - progressive house, tech house, and deep house - all together for beautifully layered and thoughtfully sequenced tracks that take you on an intense journey with every set.
