Felguk Live From Laroc Club [Exclusive Mix & Interview]

 
Get ready for festival feels! Today, we’re bringing you Felguk, live from the historic Laroc Club in Brazil! As one of the first big shows after the pandemic, the excitement pre show was palpable, and the nervous anticipation was the sign of a crowd ready to explode with energy and a night to remember. Turn it up and dance away to Felguk’s live set, while you read on to learn more about the night, Gustavo’s massive upcoming release “Trinity,” the support of Tiësto, some favorite edits to play out, and much more!

Gustavo, thanks so much for joining us to celebrate this incredible live set from Laroc! Can you set the stage for us – what was your day like before this show?
It was one of the first big gigs after the pandemic, so there was a special vibe in the air, not only for me, but for the public as well. We were craving the dancefloor!
 
 
How was the anticipation for the show?
I admit I always get nervous before playing at Laroc! I actually like being nervous, because it usually means it's going to be a great show, and I just absolutely love playing that club!
 
How did you approach creating a flow with your live set? What are some of the key sounds we can hear that Felguk really stands behind in 2022?
I usually start pretty strong with lots of bangers and Felguk hits just to get that first moment of explosion! Then I slow down to some tech house and more groovy fun stuff in the middle of the set. Towards the end, I start putting more vocal heavy tracks with lots of emotion and melody. That pretty much sums up my approach to these three phases of the set: beginning, middle and end.
 
Looking closer at your track selection, can you highlight three tracks included and why they stand out?
Felguk - “Sometimes” vs. Etta James - “Feeling Good.” This one has been one of our set openers for a while. It's the remake that got us on the setlist of many of the big DJs like Tiësto, Kygo, Diplo, Kaskade, Vintage Culture, Alok and many many others. The “Feeling Good” vocal on the breakdown just makes it even more memorable.
 
Ownboss, Sevek - “Move Your Body” vs. Barbatuques - “Baianá.” I’ve heard a lot of mashups with this banger, but frankly this is the best one.
 
Felguk, JØRD - “Crank.” That’s me and my good friend JØRD venturing into some tech house territories using Eve’s “Let Me Blow Your Mind” melody to put a twist on it.
 
 
What do you like most about playing at Laroc? What makes it stand out from other clubs? 
Laroc is a beautiful superclub that always has a kind of festival vibe to it. Maybe it's a mix of how gorgeous it is with the fact that the public is always super open and ready to party!
 
Tiësto has been rinsing your collab with NXNJAS in almost every set. What has his early support on the record meant to you and how’s your excitement for the release?
Tijs loved that track and signed it to Musical Freedom right away. I’ve had some other Musical Freedom releases, but none had this early support in his live shows. I’m super happy that he really felt the track and I feel that’s a good indication that this one might become a favorite among DJs and the public.
 
 
Can you tell us some more about your relationship with NXNJAS – how’d you meet, and how did you come to work together on the collab?
The NXNJAS guys have been in the background part of the EDM scene for some time, and have also been DJing under other aliases. During the pandemic they approached me via Instagram saying that they were big fans, that they had contracted me for shows in the past, that they were launching this new project, and that they had good ideas and references for a new track. We started trading snippets and finally “Trinity” was finished. We were all blown away by how it turned out!
 
As someone who has been a strong presence in the electronic music scene in Brazil for a long time, we’re super curious to hear your perspective. How do you view the state of dance music in the country currently? We feel like globally, Brazil is starting to take over!
Brazil is definitely a party country with continental proportions. We have been consuming electronic music from abroad for some decades now, but just recently we started really appreciating the dance music created here. Now we are starting to export some of the Brazilian talent to the world. Alok, Vintage Culture, Dubdogz, Cat Dealers and many others are really opening the eyes of the world for what we are producing here. These are exciting times for us!
 
 
Looking ahead, how are you staying on track and motivated on a daily basis?
I’m approaching 15 years of my career already, and staying constantly motivated is a challenge. Sometimes I start enjoying other types of music or just completely different interests, but the passion and motivation for dance music always come back! That’s the good thing about doing something you love.
 
For the rest of the year, what has you excited and are there any plans that you’d like to share with us?
I’ve been developing a new Felguk sound in the studio, and I’ll be showcasing it initially through some heavyweight collabs that I can’t disclose right now. Stay tuned!
