Info Text / Bio

Since meeting Munich-born Brax Moody and Thessaloniki native Vamparela have collaborated together on various projects, all culminating in the conception of Local Suicide in Berlin. Local Suicide’s distinctive sound, is an energetic fusion of new wave, EBM, slow techno, post disco and acid house that they themselves have given the name technodisco and cobrawave, while Beatport declared them as one of the key figures in the uprising dark disco scene.

Their DJ career has carried them to all four corners of the world, whipping crowds into a frenzy at Lollapalooza, Melt!, ADE, Off Sonar, Festival Forte, Berlin Festival and almost every club the German capital has to offer. Their live cuts have been honed to perfection with years of shows alongside the very best in the scene, even being invited by New Order to warm up for their live performance. This hectic schedule has taken them across Europe, Asia, North Africa, South America and the United States. As the faces behind some of the most prolific parties Berlin has to offer, these two were the driving forces of the infamous Go Bang!, T.O.F.U. and Iptamenos Discotek parties, which are just one of the many marks that they have left on the Berlin underground scene.

With solo & collaborative releases with Curses, Theus Mago, Rodion, Mijo, Alejandro Paz, Thomass Jackson, Younger Than Me, Kalipo, Skelesys, Franz Matthews & more on labels such as Bordello A Parigi, Multi Culti, My Favorite Robot, Roam, Duro, Ombra INTL, Tusk Wax, Lumière Noire, Eskimo, AEON, Ransom Note, NEIN & TAU the duo had numerous releases reaching the top 10 iTunes, Beatport & Juno charts and had massive playlist support by Spotify (Electronic Rising, Afterhours, Fresh Finds, Organica, Balearic Beat) and Apple Music (The Underground,10s Electrónica Latinoamericana Essentials).

They got remixed by the likes of Iñigo Vontier, Moscoman, Fairmont, Sascha Funke, Bufi, Aera, Smagghe & Cross, Lauer, Chaim, Manfredas, NTEIBINT, Simple Symmetry, Italo Brutalo, Mufti, The KVB, Tronik Youth to mention a few and did remixes for Digitalism, Tulioxi, Mentrix, Persona, FLXXX, Remi Wanless, Leo Af Ekenstam, John Parsley, Gøne, Packim, Pyrame & more.

The duo has had a stunning amount of press coverage from leading mags like DJ Mag UK/IT/US/LA/ES, Mixmag, FAZE, Groove, TRAX, Time Out, Tsugi, XLR8R & Rolling Stone and has recently played themselves in Fett & Fett, a series broadcasted on the biggest German national TV station ZDF in which their musical productions were featured extensively as well.

In 2021 they founded their own label Iptamenos Discos, which is Greek for Flying Saucer or Flying Vinyl, that will be the home of music they love and their own productions.
