XXIII

XXIII is a creative collective founded in 2015 by Torres and Noia, which promotes a suburban music scene with references to Brazilian funk, hip-hop, dancehall, gqom, vogue and hard drums, with the collaboration of DJs, producers, designers and photographers. Those who are familiar with XXIII knows that their parties are a breath of fresh air because of the musical curatorship they present and that the work they do goes way beyond the dance floor with their guest mixes and online label.
