Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement
DJ WEHBBA bio
Hailing from Brazil, Wehbba is one of the latest additions of Brazil's techno ambassadors.
Dentist graduate, licensed diver and purple belt Jiu Jitsu fighter for almost five years, he could
have just stuck to what he does. But DJing and music is what he really does best.
Rodolfo Wehba had it all: a practice dentistry office, working in two big clinics in Sao Paulo and
becoming a purple belt Jiu Jitsu fighter, but that was not enough, he actually crossed the pacific
ocean all the way to Sydney where he divided his time between teaching english and scuba diving,
participating in diving expeditions at the great barrier reef of northern Australia.
His involvement in the techno scence in Australia inspired him to continue his dream of becoming
a DJ. After returning to Brazil he started collecting wax and participating in events. As a producer,
his main aspiration led him to create his own sound in techno and its subgenres.
In 2004, Wehbba released his first national album titled "Revoltin'" with the support from one of
the most established labels in Brazil "URBR". The success of the album translated in the sales as
it sold out in the first three month of its release. That led Wehbba to perform on one of the biggest
festivals in Brazil: Skol Beats. Since then, his carrier advanced to a new level on a national scale.
In 2005, Wehbba reached the no.6 spot on Beatport for a month on a chart roaming with names
like Valentino Kanzyani, Marko Nastic and labels like Intec.
His other ventures got him to work with reputable names like Christian Fischer, owner of
Definition Records Germnay, DJ Link from Amigos Recordings Portugal, Stephane Signore from
Belgium, to name a few. Establishing his ground, Wehbba went on to release on labels such as
Global Underground, Great Stuff, Get Physical, Jesus Loved You, Primate, Craft Music, Yinyang,
Relic, Concept, Titanium, Amigos, among many others.
In 2006, Wehbba managed to sell out his second release, this time supported by the established
german label "Killa Beat Rec." titled "Flapin' my Pie Hole" including smashing minimal electro
remix by Kiddaz.fm's Dave Shokh. The release drew attention of the big players such as DJ Hell,
Felipe and many others. His constant evolving sound has drawn him a lot of attention from press
and public, as he scales his rythm up and down, with his groovy atmosphere as signature. In
addition, his DJ skills also surpass the realm of standards as his dynamic style allows him to flip
from all kind of techno music which carried him to perform globally on a busy schedule starting
from Europe in early 2007.
In 2009, Wehbba launched his label '82 Recordings' making it the beacon for his musical direction
and a breeding ground for honorary talented techno producers. His first release on his label has
generated thousands of sales and reached Beatport Top10 Techno chart while his contributions to
other labels like BluFin and Tronic are attracting more attention from the big players.
