L_’s music

Luis Fernando Araujo Silva


Date and place of birth

Brasilia, January 25

When did your passion and career begin?

Started as a child – my parents always listened to Brazilian artists and erudite music (Ravel, Beethoven, Bach and etc.). As a teenager, I already had a band, influenced by bands shoegazer… an indie band, that was even for a ten years.

Why have you chosen to be a DJ?

It was a natural change… As much as my music is instrumental, I can express myself much more in this way… as if they were soundcapes!

In which countries have you performed and where would you love to perform?

I’ve played in Germany – Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig, Ausburg and Bavaria. My dream is to play in New York and London.

DJs that inspire you and why?

Not necessarily DJs (neither do I consider myself a DJ, but an artist who makes music using computers), my biggest influences are Aphex Twin, Plastikman, Autechre, Brian Eno, Steve Reich and more… I’d rather not quote that much, because when people try to discover listening to the music, only the music.

Déshabillé Magazine loves to inspire the readers, we would like you to share some encouraging words.

Listen to music, all kinds of music… read books… watch movies… absorb culture to the fullest… do not give up on your plans… set a goal, a deadline and focus on it.

A series of remixes and several compilations made by Luis attracted much attention, most notably “Hy Brazil Vol. 7” which was hand- selected by Chico Dub, one of the most important figures in the Brazilian electronic music scene.
Together with his label mate Antime AAAA, L_ decided to embark on a successful, two-weeks long tour Germany in 2015. While in early 2016 he released the dancefloor- orientated EP ‘The Outsider’. But Luis is not only about producing music, he also organizes workshops on sound design with a focus on film and radio works.
