With a Work strongly consolidated in the best techno labels in the world, Pe & Ban is the Brazilian duo formed by artists Rene Castanho, aka Pest, and Ban Schiavon.
Rene Castanho presents himself as a professional DJ since 2003 and has been in the line up of the major clubs and festivals in Brazil. He’s been working as music producer for eight years and collects dozens of music released by labels from all around the world.
Ban Schiavon has 20-year career as a DJ and is known in the electronic scene in São Paulo for his technique and musical taste. Commanded the radio program "Metro Tech", by radio Metropolitana FM for two years and today performs weekly in "Clubtronic", by radio Energia 97.
The trajectory of both took the same course in mid-2009 with the beginning of the project and did not take long for Pe & Ban draw the attention of national and international labels. With strong influences of underground European techno scene, the first track released was “Here”, by Putz Records. Then came “Trauma”, released by the label Naked Lunch, and a remix for “Mikrobass”, produced by Fabrício Peçanha, which gave the duo more notoriety for being the winning a of a remix championship.
With a good response from the audience and an original work, Pe & Ban was invited to launch the music “Workaholic” by Umek’s label, 1605 Music Therapy, which made the project be an official member of their cast of artists with many other tracks released. Pe & Ban were present several times in the Top 100 of Beatport online store and integrated one of the Global Sessions podcasts, by Carl Cox.
Caring little about lettering, the duo focuses on producing good music. Their secret to success is simple: they love what they do.
