Carolina Schutzer aka Cashu is one of the key figures of São Paulo’s queer underground electronic music scene, where her work constantly communicates urgent political issues.
As an active character in São Paulo’s electronic scene, Cashu frequently performs at block parties, small venues and independent collectives. She has played in over 15 cities and participated in several collectives that work for occupying, decentralizing and hacking the Brazilian night scene. She also brings her energy to big clubs and festivals such as Dekmantel Festival in SP, Red Bull Music Academy Festival SP, , or abroad in Panorama Bar/Berghain, De School, Unsound Festival...
Either in the middle of the day or in the middle of the night, Valesuchi distinctly translates the vast mixture of her timeless and fertile sonic research, embodied as a big list of questions that has grown at an unpredictable pace through her music production and DJ craft, since she was 15 years old. With precision and purpose she stitches and improvises a message, looking to blend each crowd’s shadow, expansive aliveness and sometimes hidden sense of humour. By choosing people’s bodies as a limitless answer, Valesuchi rides the rhythm until there’s not much ice left to melt.
Never a lazy digger, the tools she has come from her background in Santiago’s risky gatherings and from the lessons learnt at the uncomparable raves she’s played all over Brazil. She chose Rio de Janeiro as her homebase in 2017, a place where techno, funk, desire and danger coexist.
