Location: São Paulo, Brazil
D-EDGE is a key player in Brazil’s house and techno underground. The 18-year-old São Paulo venue has world-famous, space-station LED walls and a high-tech soundsystem, though there’s substance as well as style here. Synonymous with discerning beats, DJs like Thomas Melchior, Truncate, Loco Dice and Dubfire have all passed through in recent times, and the venue isn’t afraid to divert from the 4/4 script, showcasing futurist d&b artist Skeptical alongside homegrown hero DJ Marky lately. Owing to the pandemic, D-Edge has remained shut since March 2020; we can only hope it will return to deliver the best in subterranean rhythms soon.
