You know, we love our Brazilians (the non-wax kind) and after I gave you a dose of them on Tuesday, here’s your second. DJs João Miguel and Luciano Oliveira, also known as The Twelves, come to the Rio Room on Thursday night as part of the club’s impressive Summer Series, and the club is offering a pair of tickets to Dallas Voice readers.
The Twelves aren’t your usual DJ team spinning the music and tweaking the MP3s. From the Rio Room: “Their live show is a unique blend of live keyboards, drum machines, mash-ups and remixing on the fly. This continuously improvising duo is known for transforming indie tracks into dance floor burners for a diverse array of acts including M.I.A, La Roux, Two Door Cinema Club, and Fever Ray. This summer marked their breakthrough into the festival scene with appearances at Coachella and Pacific Music Festival.”
Although DJs aren’t really for watching, the video below displays The Twelves working over queer faves The Gossip. Just put it on in the background and imagine yourself on the dancefloor.
