In a black humor and rashness scenario, Strausz is engaged to the recreational planning of the end of times. Evoking horny zombies, giant monsters from space, and the mystic year of 2012, the DJ producer from Rio de Janeiro is inspired by many influences to translate into music his most surreal ideas – at the expense of concepts such as musical genres and dancefloor-commited productions. Just like one of his voluptuous and hungry undead characters, Strausz devours pop references in his creations, from spaghetti western to videogames, disco music, and tokusatsu. These uniformed-warriors-against-huge-aliens japanese TV shows were the key inspiration for his video “Garoto Nacional”, named after the iconic hero National Kid. The producer’s pop-cultural anthropophagy results in something compared by Eric Kleptone to artists such as Justice and Front 242.
Strong bass sounds, overflowing arpeggiator, a lot of reverberation, some nintendocore stuff and an always groovy mood set Strausz’s mark in his original productions and remixes. His live sets resemble one-man band concerts: the musician plugs bass, electric guitar, microphone, and keyboard, mixing live-recorded samples and loops with electro ones, sporadically accompanied by the so called character “Monstro”. Strausz represents Brazilian electronic music scene and, as a pro, he believes it lives a turbulent but promising moment.
