Dubdogz & iLicris – Sunrise and Exclusive Interview

Dubdogz ilicris

Dubdogz are DJ duo (and twins) Marcos and Lucas Schmidt from Brazil. iLicris is musician and journalist Elvinho Sircili from San Paulo, Brazil. Together, Dubdogz and iLicris have released a single, Sunrise, and the track shines as brightly as the title implies. The song is a pool party BANGER, with a catchy guitar chord progression, smooth male vocals, and an electro-house arrangement leading to a strong bass lead. Simply put, this song is fun and will certainly turn the energy up if you’re looking to do so.

Dubdogz are fairly new, starting at the beginning of 2015 and reaching relative success. They are set to tour in various countries such as  Germany, South Africa, Denmark, Switzerland, France, Australia and Mexico. The duo has played major festivals such as Tomorrowland, XXXperience and Electric Zoo Brazil. Sunrise was released by Universal Music, and was the theme song for Electric Zoo’s first festival in Brazil.

iLicris came from a family of musicians, performing in various rock bands when he was younger as a drummer, guitarist, vocalist and composer. In 2015, the Rio Music Conference placed iLicris’ Dark Place as the 9th best electronic music track in the country.

Recently, we had the pleasure of interviewing Dubdogz. This interview is a bit different than how we’ve done them in the past. Weirder questions and one word answers. A bit more insightful of their personality if you ask me 😉

Sunrise is the first track below. You know the drill, press play and read the interview below for the FULL Dubdogz experience.
