Info Text / Bio
Berlin-based DJ duo and couple Brax Moody (Munich) and Vamparela (Thessaloniki) have been collaborating together since 2007, either as a DJ duo, in bands, or as remixers and music producers. Merging the rhythm and dynamism of Munich’s hip-hop clubs with the grime and attitude of Thessaloniki’s back-alley indie bars gives an idea of how to categorize Local Suicide: a straight-up soulful fusion of new wave, slow techno, acid house, chug or as they like to call it “technodisco”.

As DJs they’ve played all over Europe, Asia, North Africa, South America and the US with gigs at Off Sonar, Melt!, Amsterdam Dance Event, Berlin Festival and regular DJ slots at Salon zur Wilden RenateBerghain, Watergate, Ritter Butzke and almost every club the German capital has to offer whilst holding down day jobs in the music industry and running one of the top 10 independent music & lifestyle blogs in Germany with 50+ international editors. Rest assured that these two have honed their musical tastes and chops.

Having organized parties, festivals, and moderated radio shows for years, Local Suicide are just as much at ease inside the booth as they are outside. June 2014 saw them release their debut single “We can go everywhere” on Bordello a Parigi alongside remixes from In Flagranti, Richard Rossa and Inigo Vontier. The release has been supported by XLR8R, Thump, DJ Mag, Mixmag, De:Bug amongst many others and We can go everywhere adds a major stone to the duo’s path to major world disco take-over.

Owl & Wizzle which they produced with Rodion in his vintage synth studio in Berlin that features Mz Sunday Luv on vocal duties was released in June 2016 on Multi Culti‘s first Compilation after being premiered on THUMP. It quickly reached the top 30 Beatport Indie/Nu disco Charts and was heading the Juno balearic/downtempo charts for a month. In July 2016 the duo released a remix for Digitalism (also co-produced with Rodion) on PIAS Cooperative. In January 2017 a remix by My Favorite Robot of a track by Rodion & Local Suicide was released on My Favorite Robot Recordsannual winter compilation which got praised by DJ Mag (7,5/10) and FAZE Mag (9/10) among others.

Selected Quotes From Our Debut EP ‘We Can Go Everywhere':

‘the perfect cabrio song!’ NOISEY
‘…lacing retro chord stabs with a seemingly never-ending array of disco-minded percussion and a good deal of Moroder-indebted synth work.’ XLR8R
‘…this claptastic tune will make you wanna put your hands up in the air!’ VICE THUMP
