Drumagick are the brothers JrDeep (born 1977) and Guilherme Lopes (born 1981). They are DJs and drum 'n' bass producers who live in São Paulo, Brazil.

History[edit]

JrDeep and Guilherme Lopes were exposed to the hardcore days back in 1993. JrDeep used to skateboard as a child, but at the age of 12 he got run over by a car and had to stay almost 6 months in recovery from the accident. He started to listen to the radio a lot at that time, when bands such as Information Society, Depeche Mode and New Order were on the billboards. As soon as he recovered from the accident, he took a DJ course and became increasingly interested in electronic music.

Guilherme Lopes started to DJ from the early age of 12, following his elder brother's steps, and at the age of 15 he already produced singles. His musical influences include Brazilian popular music, Ray Conniff, the Beatles, Ed Rush, Optical, DJ Hype, Calibre and Roni Size.[1]

In 1996, they created Drumagick, who have, over the years, witnessed the transformation and development of the jungle and drum'n'bass scene as keenly as the British who invented the sound. Drumagick similarly re-invented the samba, with a twist of heavy bass, dancefloor funk, jazzy tunes and energetic melody. They are also known for DJing together at the same time with two sets of turntables, and more recently, a 5-piece live band has joined the gig.
