Semper Volt is João Tenorio, also Dj Telefunken in the past. First started as a Drum and Bass producer, now he does an electro-indie, with psychedelic and experimental influences. His new EP, Leve, has 5 tracks and it is available for streaming and to be purchased in Bandcamp. It is excellent pop music sung in Brazilian Portuguese, well composed lyrics and instrumentals.
Semper Volt is from São Paulo, Brazil, and his music is highly electronica, with a big presence of bass in his tracks, as much as interestingly composed lyrics. The new generation of electronic Brazilian artists is very far from Alok, Vintage Culture and all that commercial EDM crap. The track “Alvorada” speaks about fatherhood and the rise of new generations. After that, the EP starts to be more aggressive in its instrumentals, going to the “Lá vem o Robo” a highly experimental and aggressive bass that talks about robots, just like Kraftwerk but in a more contemporary Brazilian way. The next track is the only one in English, called ‘Rotating Lights’. The EP ends with ‘Leve’, an experimental instrumental track.
Semper Volt deserves to be in the spotlight of Brazilian electronic music artists with his new release ‘Leve’.
