Dirty Flav, former member of the duo THE VINTAGE formed by Flavio and Bruno who have had their music charted on all four corners of the globe direct from theirstudio in the south of Lausanne.
It took little over one year for these two artists to break their silence and hit the major music scene thanks primarily to the assistance of Los Angeles producer, Eddie Amador with his new label MOCHICOPRIMO!
Eddie signed and remixed The Vintage’s track “To Believe” which made a large impact and stayed in the top 10 best sellers chart at the world’s 1 online retailer, Beatport for many weeks. Like all good historical beginnings, a great friendship was formed between The Vintage and Eddie Amador, with the duo doing several other remix and originals for Eddie’s label. During this time The Vintage also released “Wake Up America” on Sondos, a sub label for Subliminal Records run by dj star Erick Morillo which was distributed globally and took only 3 weeks to sell out.
They aligned releases in the French label Mañana Records, for George Morel’s US label Groove On Records, Joe T Vanelli Italian label DreamBeat records , spanish label Tusom, swiss label Helvetica Noir, bresilien label Eletrodomesticos records, Portuguese label Magna records, and Australian label, Bellarine Records. Their pieces have been played and supported by the majority of the big dj’s house like, Erick Morillo, Eddie Amador, Roger Sanchez, David Morales, Pete Tong, Wally Lopez, George Morel, Danny Rampling, Dubfire, etc. We could listen to them in some “high quality” radio broadcasts like the BBC1 radio show of Pete Tong, the Release Yourself of Roger Sanchez or on subliminal compilation sessions, mixed by Who Tha Funk, I Love Miami mixed by Peter Rauhofer , Supalova mixed by Joe T Vannelli & 10years of Magna records mixed by Carlos Manaca. On the live side, they shot in Paris, London, Miami WMC, Lisbon, Brussels,Ibiza etc.
They played as the headline act in the most important clubs in their country of origin, Portugal and have been several times in the past, in the most important Medias like the magazine danceclub, the radio show antena 3 and several other interviews in Dance TV. In their country of residence, Switzerland, they have played in some big festivals like the Sundance or the Montreux jazz and played in the main cities like Lausanne, Zurich or Geneva and established residence at the D! Club & Mad Club (best swiss club) for the Mad’Attitude (best swiss parties).
