Lucio Morais and Yuri Chix are Database and have known each other, well, forever. Being childhood friends, they share just about everything, likes, dislikes, and even their favorite foods. However, it wasn’t until 2005 when they discovered their greatest passion, music. While students in film school, the two became famous for gathering the entire student body together—from freshman geek to senior stud—to the dance floor of São Paulo’s legendary, now-extinct club, more... “AmpGalaxy.”. This new found local fame was the driving force behind the idea to create something new — a fresh live dance act with original beats – called Database. As Database, the two released their first compilation, “Uglyedits Vol.1” in early 2008. Around this time, they were invited to remix Fatboy Slim, and got together with his label (Southern Fried Records) to release their Miami EP including a collaboration with Bonde do Role. From these two releases, their notoriety grew rapidly in Brazil, playing in some of the country’s biggest festivals, including TIM/2008 (with the Klaxons, Kanye West, MGMT, Junior Boys, etc) Haagen Dazs Mix Music Festival/2008 (Uffie, Feadz, Yuksek, The Glimmers and VHS or Beta) Fashion Week/2008 SP/RJ, Eletrônica Festival BH/2008 and Bye Bye Brasil Eletrorock Festival/2008. In 2009 “Uglyedits Vol.2” was released, after which, even more festivals came knocking on the Database door, including the Festival de Teatro de Curitiba 2009, Chemical Music Festival 2009 (Rio de Janeiro), 9 Festival Cultural LGBT, and Vice Magazine Party (2009). Including a Beaches and Friends USA Tour in 2009 and 2010 With French Horn Rebellion. Today Database is one of the biggest electronic names in Brazil, and 2009 saw the band releasing a co-written single with French Horn Rebellion – “Beaches and Friends”. The media response to Beaches & Friends in 2009 had radio support from Radio 1 including DJ’s Annie Mac, Nick Grimshaw, Jaymo & Andy George, also was Hype Machine No.1 for weeks.
