Hailing from Brazil’s main techno hub, São Paulo, Wehbba has long been considered one of the country’s premiere electronic music producers and DJs.

Breaking onto the international scene as early as 2006 with his release on German imprint Killa Beat, Wehbba’s status in the industry has since only grown. He’s known as a wizard in the studio, with dozens of singles and EPs to his name, along with two solo albums—2010’s Full Circle and 2013’s Square Two.

Following his popular appearance at Boiler Room São Paulo in late 2014, Wehbba headed in 2015 for Barcelona. The move only catapulted his star further, as he established himself into the European techno scene with regular appearances on labels like Drumcode, Kompakt, Soma, Bedrock, Second State, Systematic, 2020Vision, Knee Deep In Sound and Tronic.

His studio prowess lent itself to features on high-profile projects, over the course of his career, such as a remix for the soundtrack to Sony’s major motion picture The Magnificent Seven, a huge accomplishment by any standard, but so is remixing the likes of Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia and Stephan Bodzin, as well as collaborating on original work with legends DJ Deeon, John Digweed or Jon Dixon and D’Sean Jones from Timeline/Underground Resistance fame.

2018 has been a stellar year for Wehbba. His debut four-track Eclipse EP on Drumcode stormed into the top 10 charts within the first few days of its release in February. He returned to Drumcode again with another chart-dominating EP in July of the same year, as his four-track Catarse EP gained support from names like Ben Klock, Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Charlotte De Witte, Amelie Lens, Joseph Capriati and Pan-Pot all summer long. Wehbba had a huge year of gigs too, joining Drumcode at OFF Week in Barcelona, with further dates at Resistance in Ibiza, Warehouse Project in Manchester, fabric in London, Motion in Bristol, Rex Club in Paris, Watergate in Berlin to mention a few.

Along with his slew of high-profile dates, Wehbba capped off 2018 with a remix of Gui Boratto’s “Spur” on Kompakt in August. That was followed up with another big Drumcode release in September for the label’s A-Sides Vol. 7 compilation with “Just,” a percussive stomper that brings high-impact energy and urgency to any dance floor, one year after his debut on the label, on the 6th instalment of the same compilation series with “Fake”.
