Premiere: CESRV Brings São Paulo To The Masses With Onda

A staple of modern Brazilian music, São Paulo native Cesar Pierri – better known as CESRV – has been integral to the rap, beats and bass scene over the last decade.

He was one of the resident DJs of the Colab011 party and cofounded the Beatwise Recordings label, eventually hooking up with Red Bull as member of RBMA Bass Camp in 2014.

The last few years have seen him working with rappers such as Rincon Sapienca and Baco Exu du Blues,  plus artists such as Febem, Fleezus, DKVPZ, DJ Tahira and Kamau.

UK heads might know him from work with Swindle, plus he’s collaborated with footwork legends DJ Rashad and Taso of Teklife.

Earlier this year, he produced the BRIME EP with Febem and Fleezus, a celebration of grime and baile funk recorded with UK artists Jevon and TeeBoi.

And now, to his new EP: Bela Vista, which CESRV describes as ‘hidden Brazilian samples mixed with footwork influenced beats which tell a story about the joys and odds of life in Bela Vista’, a Sao Paulo neighbourhood where he maintains his studio. We premiere Onda below.

Bela Vista track listing:
1. Lotus
2. Sippin’
3. Onda
4. Cry Baby
5. Chuva De Verão
6. Tristeza
