A tropical storm of electronic psychidelia directly from Lima, Perú. A project always in constant evolution, exploring rhythms and sounds of the world.
Dengue Dengue Dengue! is an audiovisual duo from Lima, Perú. Behind the masks are Felipe Salmon and Rafael Pereira, two producers, dj's and graphic designers. Their work focuses in exploring native rhythms from Peru and other parts of the world, recreating them in an electronic form, mixing the old with the new, analog and digital, to create their own unique sound and visuals. Their musical explorations go from Psychedelic Cumbia to Dub, from Salsa to Footwork, from Tribal to Techno, the sound and visual palette keeps growing and adding more and more flavours to the mix.
This year DDD are releasing their second full length album titled “Siete Raices” (Seven Roots) which will be out in June on Enchufada Records. This record will come with a new video too, directed by Mikael Stornfelt, who also directed the Simiolo and Chichón videos.
In 2015 they where commissioned by legendary Salsa record label Fania Records to remix one of his classics for a special 50 year anniversary compilation. They also released a new track for a Greenpeace / Rhythm and Roots label project, a compilation of birdsong inspired tracks. It also was a year of intense touring, Latin America from January to March, Europe in June, USA in August and October and a second European tour in December.
In 2014 they got officially singed to Enchufada Records, and released the EP “Serpiente Dorada”. They did a lecture for Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo and released the track “Pineal” for RBMA project “20 before 15”. They also remixed Tremor, Symbiz Sound, El Remolon and king Doudou. They had 3 European tours, playing shows in Dour, Roskilde and Paleo Festivals among others including an amazing set at SONAR Festival in Barcelona, reviewed by Xlr8r and others as one of the best shows in the festival. They also played Cuba, Japan. Argentina, Chile, China, Brazil, Jamaica, Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia.
2013 is the year where things really took off, it started with a great Mexican tour and in June, an amazing two month European Tour, playing at major festivals and clubs all around Europe in cities like Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Madrid , Barcelona, Paris, Stockholm among others. In July Chusma Records released the “Simiolo Remixes” EP, and Enchufada Records the track Lokumba for the “Upper Cuts” series, showcasing yet another side of the Dengue Dengue Dengue! sound.
In 2012 they released their debut album “La Alianza Profana” (or "The Unholy Alliance") and the video for the single “Simiolo” .The Album and video, both published by the Peruvian label Auxiliar, are an instant success with both the press and fans, locally and internationally . The album caught the attention of Berlin´s Chusma Records, who later (2013), re-released the Album for Europe, Asia and Australia. Later that year they play at the NOVA Art Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil and the III Iberoamerican Design Bienal in Madrid, Spain.
In early 2011 they began to publish their first original productions, being bloggued in major and specialized music portals in USA, Europe and the UK. Their sound started to spread faster, playing many festivals in Peru and along with the "Auxiliar" Collective, started producing the TOMA! Sessions, helping to consolidate the growing and vibrant Tropical Bass movement in Lima, inviting musicians and DJs from different places to share sounds and ideas.
DDD was born in mid-2010 and inmediatly made themselves well known thanks to an impeccable audiovisual show, remixing and making mash-ups from their own tracks with old cumbias and modifying cumbia cult themes to electronic versions. All this always joined by amazing visuals and the always present masks.

Review del Festival Comunité 2017 en Resident Advisor. la pasamos de lujo.
"Things got cooking on the main stage with a live set from Peruvian duo Dengue Dengue Dengue, who merge traditional Afro-Latin music with percussion-heavy electronics. Their set swung across a wide range of rhythms, with a playful arc united by rich organic samples, interlocking rhythms and huge sub-bass" - Resident Advisor
