Formally one of our future heroes; Rodolfo Wehba (WEHBBA), born in Sao Paulo, Brazil has been spinning techno and house records for over a decade and has rightfully earned his place as one of the world’s leading and most respected techno artists.
After much recognition and success in Brazil, like many artists, he decided to make the move to Barcelona, the European hub for producers and artists – where he now has his studio and is based full time.
His distinct style and stellar production skills have earned him collaborations with the world’s most respected artists including Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia, John Digweed, Stacey Pullen, Joseph Capriati, Stephan Bodzin, Marc Houle, ANNA and Christian Smith, a long standing production partner and Tronic Music’s label boss.
Since 2009, he has had a steady stream of outstanding EP’s that have all graced the Beatport charts regularly on labels including Drumcode, Soma, Bedrock, 2020Vision, Elevate, Knee Deep In Sound and Tronic, where he’s based most of his output, including critically acclaimed albums “Full Circle” and “Square Two”, in 2010 and 2013 respectively.
He has displayed his versatility as a musician with guest appearances from Jon Dixon and D’Sean Jones, from the Detroit groups D3 and Timeline, part of the legendary Underground Resistance collective, in his 2013 album “Square Two”. Since then he has secured interesting and diverse projects, including being featured on “The Magnificent Seven” movie promotion via Sony Pictures, remixing the main theme of the motion pictures soundtrack.
You can catch his mixes every month with his residency at Pioneer DJ Radio, as well as regular appearances on Tronic Radio. Not forgetting his exclusive streaming with Boiler Room in Sao Paulo back in 2014 where he performed a set with only his own productions under different aliases.
2017 saw Wehbba balancing a hectic touring schedule with some downtime in the studio, developing his production style and testing out new hardware for his last few remixes for Marc Houle and Philip Bader, making a debut on both those labels, as well as his track ‘Unfold” which was featured on the SUM compilation on Second State.
And finally, his track ‘Fake’ on Drumcode’s much loved A-Sides compilation. A track that did so well, we can now expect his fully road tested 4 track EP ‘Eclipse’ on the 19th February, it’s going to be a big one! Already planning his creative ideas to follow for this year, Wehbba looks set for some cool collaborations, so keep an eye out for updates.
