If there’s one thing Vinicius Honorio doesn’t do, it’s things in half measures. Hailing from the buzzing Brazilian metropolis of Rio de Janeiro, few artists are better versed in what it takes to succeed than Honorio. From DJing at school parties in 1998, to spending every last bit of spare change in record stores, to working in clubs at prestigious South American venues, it seems he was always destined to be a DJ.2017 is the year that has proven to be his most successful yet, when his dream of releasing music on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode became a reality. After sending over demos, some back and forth over skype followed and Beyer decided to sign four tracks. During the latter half of 2016 and into 2017, the tracks would become a staple of his sets and heard by millions around the world through his Drumcode Live radio show. ‘Through The Darkness’ is a masterclass in darkened techno grooves, with each one of the four tracks managing to show off Honorio’s skill as a producer and just why he is firing on all cylinders. The release garnered the support of support from artists such as Len Faki, Laurent Garnier and Hot Since 82 amongst others and became the best- selling release on Beatport during the week of its release.Hot on the heels of fulfilling his dream and accompanied by a Drumcode catalogue number tattoo, it seems there are no signs of slowing down for Honorio as he continues to push forward with work in the studio and on the road. Having already played across 5 continents, he has a tour diary that reads like pilot’s passport and with countless appearances at leading London clubbing institution Egg, we can expect to see a lot more from Honorio not only in London, but across the planet.
