Dengue Dengue Dengue! – (Lima-Perú)
Dengue Dengue Dengue! is a Tropical Bass duo. Behind the masks are Felipe Salmon and Rafael
Pereira, two producers, dj’s and graphic designers from Lima-Perú. For their live performances
they team up with Nadia Escalante (A.K.A. Vj Sixta) for a full Audiovisual Show.
DDD was born in mid-2010 and inmediatly made themselves well known thanks to an impeccable
audiovisual show, remixing and making mash-ups from their own tracks with old cumbias and
modifying cumbia cult themes to electronic versions. All this always joined by amazing visuals
and the always present masks.
In early 2011 they began to publish their first productions, being bloggued in major and
specialized music portals in USA, Europe and the UK. Their sound started to spread faster,
playing many festivals in Peru and along with the “Auxiliar” Collective, started producing the
TOMA! Sessions, helping to consolidate the growing and vibrant Tropical Bass movement in
Lima, inviting musicians and DJs from different places to share sounds and ideas.
In 2012 they released their debut album
“La Alianza Profana”
(or “The Unholy Alliance”) and the video for the single
“Simiolo” .The Album and video, both published by the Peruvian label Auxiliar, are an instant success
with both the press and fans, locally and internationally . The album caught the attention of Berlin ́s
Chusma Records, who later (2013), re-released the Album for Europe, Asia and Australia.
Later that year they play at the NOVA Art Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil and the III Iberoamerican
Design Bienal in Madrid, Spain.
2013 started with great Mexican tour and in June, an amazing two month European Tour, playing
at major festivals and clubs all around Europe in cities like Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Madrid ,
Barcelona, Paris, Stockholm among others. In July Chusma Records released the Simiolo Remixes EP
and Enchufada Records the track Lockumba for the “Upper Cuts” compilation.
With shows booked for Colombia, Ecuador, USA and Mexico.
This year (2014) the duo released the EP “Serpiente Dorada” on Enchufada Records, with 6 new tracks
that takes their sound to a new level, exploring a wider range of native rhythms and textures.
They have been traveling a lot in this first 6 months, playing shows in Cuba, Argentina, Chile,
Brazil, Colombia, France, Denmark, Belgium, etc. And for the European Summer they are
