As far as underground house and techno line-ups go in Rio, noon's Carnival special is one of the most stirring in a while. The outstanding German trio of (label-mates) Dixon, Henrik Schwarz and Âme featuring on the same bill is something of a coup to say the least. The double whammy prospect of a day and night party whets the appetite even further with Carnival in full flow across the city.
The open air deck plays host to the daytime session running from 4pm, after which things move indoors and the sounds get tougher. Accompanying the Innervisions triplet on their tour of the finest house and techno are local duo Flow & Zeo, Ricardo Estrella and Davis. The party is an official Rio Music Conference event, so if the all the samba starts to get a bit much, swap it for the contrasting beats of 00 and enter the realms of dance music of a different kind.
