Against The Clock: DEAFKIDS

Against The Clock is a series where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. DEAFKIDS are Douglas Leal, Marcelo Dos Santos and Mariano Sarine, a São Paulo-based trio who draw on punk, noise and industrial sounds as well as traditional Brazilian music and rhythms. The trio’s music has appeared on legendary US independent label Neurot Recordings as well as Rocket Recordings in the UK. In 2019, they released a collaborative EP with São Paulo duo Rakta, and last year, they appeared on the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack. “Our creative process really varies,” Leal tells Fact. “Sometimes, we’ll come up with lots of ideas in an afternoon, experimenting with rhythms and filters, electric pulses, riffs like electric guitar loops.
