Born in Minas Gerais, Cesar Abril has been rising over the course of more than 10 years of career with a distinct sound signature, following elements of Organic House without being carried away by the conventional. It’s about balance, in addition to a genuine care to stay true to his own history in music, that the producer designs his sets maintaining a glow of essence communicating his identity on the dance floor. Cesar has performed on stages such as Warung, UP Club, Samsara Festival, among others desired by several Brazilian artists. Today the producer comes to tell us a little about his sound and his history with music.
Welcome, Cesar! When did you start producing what was your biggest goal?
Cesar Abril: Hello, everything is great. In 2019 when I started studying music production, my main goal was to be recognized for my musical identity and thus explore new horizons, meet new people, take my music everywhere possible.
What were the highlights of your career so far?
Until the exact moment my highlights are releases already scheduled for this year, important gigs that opened doors for me and made me meet many people. I believe this is just the beginning of everything that is to come, as music breaks unimaginable barriers.
What was the release that marked your journey and which one do you have as a favorite?
This year I had a free download release of a song that I participated in a remix contest for the artist Hot Since 82, this song had a lot of repercussions, and I also have important releases for the rest of the year. Special songs with great potential.
What keeps you in electronic music?
This answer is quite cliché, but it is the purest truth. Love for music, that’s what keeps the flame burning in the midst of so many storms.
What are your biggest musical references?
Michael Jackson is certainly my biggest reference in music as a whole. More in electronic music, I refer to artists like Marco Carola, Eric Prydz, Sharam, Facundo Mohr, Lee Burridge, among others.
Where do you see yourself musically for the next 10 years?
Harvesting fruits that are being planted today.
What are your plans for the next year in terms of releases and presentations?
Releases, I hope it’s reaching major labels that I’ve been aiming for 2 years ago. Gigs, I look forward to performing in places I would never have imagined performing one day. 🙂
