Edition #7
Rio de Janeiro, 2004

Check out an interview with the house DJ from Rio

We interviewed DJ Candelot, DJ at Galeria Café (Rio)

Intelligent Dance Music

And her timeless music

This is just my favorite movie ever...

Why are churches increasingly empty

Every form of love is worth it


“DKANDLE weaves swirling multi-colored vibrant unearthly soundscapes, blending fuzzy and reverberating Shoegaze textures, mesmerizing Dream Pop meditations, sludgy Grungey tones and moody Post-punk strains, heightened with soul-stirring lyricism and pensive emotive vocalizations”



TAGS : DJ, interview, music, electronic music, quick q&a

- What is your nickname and why?
Dudu... Because my name is Eduardo... simple as that...

- What do you do for a living?
I try to R-Exist...

- How old were you when you lost your virginity?
For real, at 15.

- Have you ever ridden in a police car?
Never. I prefer taking a cab....

- If you won the Lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
I was going to get the money...

- Do you like pornography?
Short... But I'm against crimes committed in the name of this...

- Do you believe in astrology?
I do.... I'm a Leo with Capricorn ascendant...

- What was the biggest hassle you've ever commited?
Having been beside myself after drinking 2 lexotans and 2 vodkas and swearing at someone I admire a lot.

- What's the most bizarre rumor you've ever heard about yourself?
It was during New Year's Eve at the top of Pão de Açúcar.... I met a little guy who had known me since I was little and he was scared when he saw me, because he thought I had died of Aids a long time ago... (I was sitting in a plane above his head)...

- What is your favorite drug?

Your opinion on:
Forró - I love northeastern music in general.... Cool forró has a lot of groove... Baião, Xote, Xaxado, Coco, etc., I love it all... There are new people doing really cool forró.... Now, forró Pasteurized doesn't work, right?...

Activism - I don't believe in guns... I believe that the world is constantly transformed by the actions of all human beings at the same time. We all have responsibility. I transform, you transform, he transforms.

Rio Night Life - The Carioca public is uninformed, lazy, ignorant, mediocre.... is pitiful.... Superboys and Supergirls with nothing on their heads or feet....   


Brazilian media - I don't watch TV anymore. Open TV on Sundays is what sets the country back. I prefer newspapers, but you always have to take everything you see or read at face value... What could be more tacky than a journalist writing the word "muderninho"? HAS!!!... Faustão's "respectable" costume... hehehe...   

Suicide - I had a great friend, almost a brother... We grew up together, discovered a lot of things together, listened to a lot of music together... We liked Bowie and Kraftwerk.... He shot himself in the head because he thought it was stylish... We'd read Artaud, listened to Joy Division... We wrote poetry inspired by the beatniks and the French, etc.... André's death was the worst thing that ever happened to me... I lost the only person I thought could understand me deeply.... We dreamed of the Bowie and Kraftwerk concerts ("impossible to happen in Brazil").... Well, I saw both shows... he didn't. And the worst thing.... when he died, someone stupidly threw away ALL THE DISKS AND BOOKS, AND ALSO ALL THE POEMS... Definitely...... R-Existing is much more radical than blowing your head off to find out if there's music on the other side.

Sandy & Junior - I find Junior a very interesting character.... I wonder how he must stir up the libido of a lot of guys out there....   

Ecstasy - Is that the only reason to dance?... I prefer real ecstasy...   

Flying Saucers - Very interesting.... 

 - What does God look like?

According to one spiritualist book, with seven suns, each with a color from the Rainbow... according to other Eastern philosophies, with infinite pots of water reflecting the light of the moon, but it all depends on what you mean by that word....   

- How do you want to die?


- Will we have a Third World War?

According to Baudrillard, we're already starting a Fourth...  

Dudu Candelot is a DJ at Rádio Babilônia
