Diogo Strausz

Biography

Diogo Strausz is a music producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Growing up in Rio de Janeiro, he showed a prodigal talent for composition from an early age, and this same passion for creating music still inspires Diogo as a record producer and remixer today. Through both solo work and collaboration, at only 32 years of age he has already blazed an impressively accomplished trail in the world of music. As part of the duo Balako, Strausz’s music was released on Razor-N-Tape, Barefoot Beats and Greco-Roman after gaining the attention of Joe Goddard of Hot Chip. His tracks have been played by Gilles Peterson on BBC 6 and Bill Brewster, as well as described as ‘an enticing melting pot of sounds that feels both retro and current’ by XLR8R. Strausz recently made international waves earlier this year with his piece Pausa on Far Out Recordings, a grand and sprawling orchestral composition, recorded by musicians around the world in isolation. Strausz’ career began in his early 20s, producing hits for indie Brazilian artists Castello Branco and Alice Caymmi, and co-producing an album for Brazilian actor Chay Suede with Mario Caldato Jr of The Beastie Boys. Now based in-between Paris and São Paulo, Strausz recently co-produced the record ‘Les Bruits de La Ville’ for up and coming French artist Voyou on Sony Music France, and he was recently tapped to remix two songs by legendary Brazilian singer Gal Costa.
