The pair met in 2015 through a mutual friend on a production job in LA, quickly striking up a friendship through their shared love of music. “As we walked home from the beach one day we started talking about creating a party” explains Strausz. “We started doing edits and remixes from tracks we loved and bringing live musicians in to play on them to create a unique atmosphere at these events.”
From there the pair took their ideas to Diogo’s studio and Balako was born. “We complement each other well,” shares Peirao, “we both bring something to the table respect each other’s opinions a lot.” Dubbed a ‘music production master’ by Noisey, seasoned record producer and multi-instrumentalist Strausz is known for his ability to work with a wide range of styles and genres. Peirao has previously worked as a composer, DJ, producer and creative director, producing parties around the globe and DJ’ing with the likes Young Marco and Derrick Carter.
