He needs no introduction, but…Dave Rowntree, drummer of the British band BLUR, will be landing on La Paz stage on September 12th. The co-author of “Song 2”, “Coffee & TV” “Girls & Boys” and “Parklife” begins his tour of Brazil in Rio. He will perform with a DJ Set at the Paradiso & Nugrooves parties which has also already announced notable artists as Andy Smith (DJ of the band Portishead, UK), DJ Marky, The Twelves, among others. Band member of an iconic global rock band and London radio host (Radio XFM), DAVE Rowntree comes to Rio fitted with a fantastic collection of British all time rock. Pumping tunes with all the authority of someone who has lived the indie scene and brit pop decades of 80’s/90’s/00’s, and today attends the most thunderous European clubs dedicated to alternative rock and electro-rock.
Dave is a plural artist, a man of many facets: graduated in law and computer science, specializing in computer animation. As an animator he directed two series of South Park; is the host of a weekly rock radio show on XFM London; Labour Party activist; patron of Amicus - committed to the fight against the death penalty; Advisory Board member of the Open Rights Group - a digital rights NGO based in the UK that advocates the free exchange of digital files over the internet.
Another guest of the night is Gustavo Magoo (In_Rotation) who will bring his case on for one set filled with groove and harmony from the likes of the Soulful House to Jackin, and other variations, and always contagiously energizing the tracks on which he presents.
