The Brazilian DJ and producer blends indigenous carioca grooves with techno, house, soul and Latin American sounds.

Producer and DJ Carrot Green’s sound is deeply connected to the indigenous sounds of his homeland, Brazil. In his sun-dappled and groovy way, he explores a multi-layered style of carioca – the affectionate name for the people of Rio de Janiero, and a kind of baile funk that is emblematic of the sonic and ethnic melting pots of modern Brazil – and blends it with Afro-funk, house, techno, soul and underground Latin American sounds. After coming to the 2013 Academy in New York as a participant, Carrot Green has released records on labels such as Disco Halal and Brazilian Shakedown, and he’s played at the São Paulo edition of Dekmantel.
