Straight from Rio de Janeiro, DJ Chico was heavily influenced by the funk music coming from the ghettos during his childhood in the 90’s, a time when Ragga fever was popping up around the world with Shaggy and Ini Kamoze.
After a few years playing electronic music, the Jamaican influences came back. Along with some friends, DJ Chico setup and produced a dub music party called FAYAH. Together, they brought people from the Brazilian underground scene to play alongside international artists such as Dreadsquad, Soom T and Krak in Dub.
In 2019 DJ Chico produced Soom T’s ‘Love Thy Neighbours Tour’, doing 19 live shows as DJ with the mighty MC, travelling from Brazil to Mexico.
This year he returns to the Hidden Woods.
