Vamparela & Brax Moody
Berlin-based DJ duo and couple Brax Moody (Munich) and Vamparela (Thessaloniki) have been playing music together since 2007, either as a DJ duo, in bands, or as remixers and producers. Merging the rhythm and dynamism of Munich’s hip-hop clubs with the grime and attitude of Thessaloniki’s back-alley indie bars gives an idea of how to categorize Local Suicide: a straight-up energetic fusion of techno, new wave, post-disco, acid house and electro.
As DJs they’ve played all over Europe, Asia, North Africa, South America and the US with gigs at Off Sonar, Melt!, Amsterdam Dance Event, Lollapalooza, Berlin Festival and DJ slots at Wilde Renate, Berghain, Katerblau, Watergate, Weekend, and almost every club the German capital has to offer whilst holding down day jobs in the music industry and running one of the top independent music & lifestyle blogs in Germany with 30+ international editors. Rest assured that these two have honed their musical tastes and chops.
Having organized parties, festivals, and moderated radio shows for years, Local Suicide are just as much at ease inside the booth as they are outside. Their monthly event series T.O.F.U. (Too Old For Understatement) which they are co-organising with Sean Patrick since 2015 is one of Berlin's most respected underground parties with international guests such as Rex The Dog, Khidja, Autarkic, C.A.R., Bird Of Paradise, DC Salas, Munk, Dreems, Zombies In Miami, Theus Mago, Thomass Jackson, Iñigo Vontier among others.
June 2014 saw them release their debut single 'We Can Go Everywhere' on Bordello a Parigi alongside remixes from In Flagranti, Richard Rossa and Inigo Vontier. The release has been supported by XLR8R, Thump, De:Bug & Spotify amongst many others and 'We Can Go Everywhere' adds a major stone to the duo’s path to major world disco take-over. In 2016 their collaboration with Italian virtuoso Rodion and Greek-Canadian diva Mz Sunday Luv"Owl & Wizzle" was included in Multi Culti's "Sun Gaze Moon Faze" compilation. It quickly reached the top 30 Beatport Indie/Nu disco Charts and was heading the Juno balearic/downtempo charts for a month.
The remix they did with Rodion for Digitalism's "Destination Breakdown" was released in the summer of 2016 on PIAS and made crowds go crazy all over the world. In the summer of 2016 they also dropped their edit of the classic Russia by Elissa Waut. In January 2017 a remix by My Favorite Robot of a track by Rodion & Local Suicide was released on My Favorite Robot Records‘ annual winter compilation which got praised by DJ Mag (7,5/10) and FAZE Mag (9/10) among others. On August 25, 2017 the duo released another 12” EP with Rodion on My Favorite Robot Records with remixes by Moscoman, Fairmont and Los Mekanikos which got reviewed by the likes of DJ Mag Italy (7,5/10), Mixmag UK (8/10), Groove, FAZE (8/10) & DJ Mag UK (8/10). It also got added to Spotify‘s ‘Fresh Finds’ playlist and entered the Beatport top 30 sales charts.
In May 2018 'Le Nez D'Une Generation' with Rodion was released on the Second Gathering Compilation via Kasper Bjørke & Sexy Lazer's Sisters & Brothers via hfn music, an EP with Mexican Mijo and Sascha Funke and Simple Symmetry remixes and two more EPs are to be released: one with Mexican Theus Mago and remixes by Colossio and Aera on DURO and one with NYC born and raised Curses.
