Having classical music training and passionate about dance music since he was 11, DJ and producer Liu was considered a whiz kid by important DJs in his early days. Studio devotion, charismatic live presentations and brilliant tunes helped this artist build a loyal fanbase and become one of the most sought-after performers in Brazilian clubs.
Self-taught and mindful, an auspicious pathway seems to unfold ahead of Liu, who quickly learned to take great responsibilities in his career, ranging from musical collaborations with Alok to performances in national and international festivals like Tomorrowland Brazil and Electric Zoo Festival.
Among his many hits, we can mention Don’t Look Back, a single that put Liu on Alok’s radar, and caused a buzz in the electronic scene upon its release; All I Want, a collaboration with Alok via giant label Armada Music and listened 29 million times in Spotify; and Coastline, via Spinnin Records, which charted – thanks to its delightful seaside vibe – among the top 200 most played tunes in Spotify Brazil and in essential Spotify playlists like MINT and Fresh Electronic.
Used to get the most out of the different worlds, Liu manages to even up the sonic emotional state of his releases in an attempt to suit all tastes – sometimes he’ll come up with club-oriented beats like Pirate, Tufak, and Bolum Back – the latter became an international hit thanks to Djs like Jauz – other times, he’ll also please non-clubbers with tracks like Don’t Be
Scared and even Coastline, showing how versatile this young DJ and producer can be, from the radio to the club and vice-versa.
One of his recent release, “Nave Espacial” reinforces his outstanding position in the Brazilian electronic scene. This track counts on an official video and in a year period already have more than 27 million views on YouTube.
Still in 2019, Liu was invited by Universal Music and signed an exclusive contract with the label. The first track “Me Cura” is the result of a partnership with Ana Muller and Clara Valverde – the first wrote the lyrics, while the second lent his voice to the song, which even light and romantic, still has the characteristic bass from Liu. On youtube, the lyric video has almost 2 million views.
