Berlin-based DJ duo and couple Brax Moody (Munich) and Vamparela (Thessaloniki) have been collaborating together since 2007, either as a DJ duo, in bands, or as remixers and music producers. Merging the rhythm and dynamism of Munich’s hip-hop clubs with the grime and attitude of Thessaloniki’s back-alley indie bars gives an idea of how to categorize Local Suicide: a straight-up energetic fusion of new wave, slow techno, post disco, acid house or as they like to call it “technodisco”.

As DJs they’ve played all over Europe, Asia, North Africa, South America and the US with gigs at Lollapalooza, Melt!, Amsterdam Dance Event, Off Sonar, Berlin Festival and almost every club the German capital has to offer whilst holding down day jobs in the music industry and running one of the top 10 independent music & lifestyle blogs in Germany with 30+ international editors. Rest assured that these two have honed their musical tastes and chops.

Having organized parties, festivals, and moderated radio shows for years, Local Suicide are just as much at ease inside the booth as they are outside. June 2014 saw them release their debut single “We can go everywhere” on Bordello a Parigi alongside remixes from In Flagranti, Richard Rossa and Inigo Vontier. The release has been supported by XLR8R, Thump, DJ Mag, Mixmag, De:Bug amongst many others and We can go everywhere adds a major stone to the duo’s path to major world disco take-over. “Owl & Wizzle“ which they produced with Rodion in his vintage synth studio in Berlin that features Mz Sunday Luv on vocal duties was released in June 2016 on Multi Culti‘s first Compilation after being premiered on THUMP. It quickly reached the top 30 Beatport Indie/Nu disco Charts and was heading the Juno balearic/downtempo charts for a month. In July 2016 the duo released a remix for Digitalism (also co-produced with Rodion) on PIAS Cooperative. In January 2017 a remix by My Favorite Robot of a track by Rodion & Local Suicide was released on My Favorite Robot Records‘ annual winter compilation which got praised by DJ Mag (7,5/10) and FAZE Mag (9/10) among others. On August 25, 2017 the duo released another 12” EP with Rodion on My Favorite Robot Records with remixes by Moscoman, Fairmont and Los Mekanikos which got reviewed by the likes of DJ Mag Italy (7,5/10), Mixmag UK (8/10), Groove, FAZE (8/10) & DJ Mag UK (8/10). It also got added to Spotify‘s ‘Fresh Finds’ playlist and entered the Beatport top 30 sales charts.

In 2018 there are EP’s coming up with Mexican producer Mijo via Roam Recordings including remixes by Sascha Funke & Simple Symmetry, another collaboration EP with Curses with 4 original tracks on TUSK Wax, a track with Rodion on the Second Gathering (the Sisters & Brothers mini compilation curated by Kaspar Bjorke & Sexy Lazer) out May 4th via HFN Music and a few more up the line!
