If there’s one thing Vinicius Honorio doesn’t do, it’s things in half measures. Hailing from the buzzing Brazilian metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, few artists are better versed in what it takes to succeed than Honorio.
2017 is the year that has proven to be his most successful yet, when his dream of releasing music on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode became a reality. After sending over demos, some back and forth over skype followed and Beyer decided to sign four tracks.
During the latter half of 2016 and into 2017, the tracks would become a staple of his sets and heard by millions around the world through his Drumcode Live radio show. ‘Through The Darkness’ is a masterclass in darkened techno grooves, with each one of the four tracks managing to show off Honorio’s skill as a producer and just why he is firing on all cylinders. The release garnered the support of support from artists such as Len Faki, Laurent Garnier and Hot Since 82 amongst others and became the best-selling release on Beatport during the week of its release.
It shortly was followed by another release on Drumcode in September, as part of their A-Sides compilation with his track ‘Diamond Dust’. This success has driven the Brazilian to follow some of his own personal passions for 2018, announcing he will be launching his very first label in March called Liberta, with his own EP ‘Dying Of The Light’ to kick things off.
It seems there are no signs of slowing down for Honorio as he continues to push forward with work in the studio and on the road.
