Full of sweat, dedication and lots of love – that’s how this gang works around Brazil.
Meet a brief history of each crew to join us in Algodões for XAMA 2020.
101Ø was born in 2015 when a group of friends connected by their love for music decided to create a party in order to pay the rent of their apartment in Belo Horizonte – number 1010. The idea worked out fine, the crowd has grown and today the label became one of the main dance music parties in the country, responsible for bringing back the scene of their state into the route of the industry’s big events.
The collective came to life in 2012, created amongst a group of friends stimulated by the certainty that they could do something different for the local scene. Their parties ended up showing the path they chose was something necessary for Curitiba, and little by little Alter became synonymous with freedom and change in the social status quo.
Discoteca ODARA is the multicultural plurality of vinyl collections magnetized in the infinite sensations that run in a space where bodies dance to recorded music. It is crossroads, common places, safety, from anyone to anyone, a place where the diverse meets and live as one.
Rio de Janeiro
Domply is a project of musical events born in Rio de Janeiro. The collective’s parties follow the instable behavior, sometimes even schizophrenic, of the now infamous “DOM”. Dom rocks his crowd, of parties with the sun aside a pool with summery music, up to the most underground places of the city with experimental and electronic sounds. The goal is to disseminate the club music and the non-club music, the deejaying in all its dimensions. This team of frontier-less diggers arrive at XAMA in the company of Craig Ouar and Pedro Henrique Pedra. “Be Domply”.

Anything ‘na manteiga’ (Portuguese for on the butter) gets tastier. Butter accentuates flavors, enhances textures and highlights fragrances like no other ingredient. A perfect metaphor for a project committed to bringing all the global musical opulence to us, wherever we are – be it São Paulo, Amsterdam, or Algodões.
